"Sweethearts" as written by Carl Schurtz, Carl Christopher Anderson, Carl Schurtz and Carl Christopher Anderson....
At the corner of the general store. sat a girl with golden hair.
With an ice cream cone drippin' down her wrist.
She didn't have a single care. at the filling station across the way.
Worked a boy whose eye she caught.

And before you know it she was wearing the ring.
That the young boy's money had bought. everyone said that they'd be sweethearts.
But she had plans of her own. she said one day she'd go far away.
She ain't never comin' home. well she had hopes and she had dreams.

Oh lord will they ever come true. she played them off like silly whims.
But deep down inside she knew. one day she'd be the talk of the town.
The apple of everyone's eye.
But the boy still thought that they'd be lovers until the day they died.

Oh so in love. but somethin' must go wrong.
A sharp dressed man from the bright light city came and sang his city song.
She packed her bags. said no goodbyes. it broke the you boy's heart.
But no small town can hold this girl. and she knew it from the start
