Everlasting Romance

Like a Blue Jay on Friday
she vanished in the morning haze
Maybe she longed for and needed
some more of them red-letter days
Some more rides into the sunsets
Some more guys to hold her tight
Some more men who’d give her lovin’
every day and every night

Well I’m not the kind of cowboy
who stays in one place very long
I’m a great plains drifter
I’m stubborn and headstrong
I like the mystery of a new night
A new crowd and a big ol’ stage
Where I can share my heartbreaks
and channel all my rage

But that girl, she was different
She had this hold over me
She had butterscotch doe eyes
She could make a sweet Georgia tea
She had a pearly white perfect smile
She was like heaven in my hands
And if I could just find her
If she could give me another chance
I’d wanna stay with her forever
and make it an everlasting romance

I’ve searched just about everywhere
and she’s nowhere to be found
Maybe she went back to her Mama
in her small Oklahoma hometown
I don’t know how to reach her
and it’s driving me insane
But I’m not gonna give up lookin’
and put a bullet in my brain

Cause that girl, she was different
She had this hold over me
She had butterscotch doe eyes
She could make a sweet Georgia tea
She had a pearly white perfect smile
She was like heaven in my hands
I was gonna ask her to marry me
but she had other secret plans

And if I could just find her
If she could give me another chance
I’d wanna stay with her forever
and make it an everlasting romance

I’d wanna stay with her forever
and make it an everlasting romance
