1920’s Eyes

Lord, where do I start? I haven’t heard your name in so long
I thought of you the other day, I heard that old Neil Young song
It brought me back to that one summer, we used to chase them girls around
We used to tear ass in your Nova, man, we thought we owned that town
Lord, where do I start? I haven’t heard your name in so long
HOO-
This new girl I’ve been seeing, has got them 1920’s eyes
Like a picture from a book they made us read when we were 16
She waits tables twice a week on top of barbering full time
You wouldn’t guess it looking at her, she’s the hard working type
This new girl I’ve been seeing has got them 1920’s eyes


Now I’ve got to go, it’s Friday night, and there’s this redhead at the door
Dressed in heels and tapping her toes (While)
There’s much more needing said, I’m sure you’ve got one of your own
But I’ve got twenty bucks calling she’s a blonde
So I’ll call you back, I’ll drop you a line
I’ll make it out west right as soon as I find the time
I’ve got to let you go, I’ve got to get to going out tonight
HOO-
She’s been all dolled for hours, watching me like I was traffic light
And I’m combing my hair back, we’re going to paint this city red tonight
See it’s my first one off in ages, and she’s spent that whole time waiting
Now here favorite band is playing at this bar that I’m known to frequent
This new girl I’ve been seeing has got them 1920’s eyes

(Chorus)
