Carrie Newcomer This song is performed by Carrie Newcomer.
Roy squeezed her hand Alice smiled at him
The senior club special is a lot food for them
They act like teenagers or the best of friends
With one hundred-eighty years between the two of them
Back during the war at a wild country-dance
He thought she'd ignore him but he took the chance
Fifteen songs later he still held her close
And a million dances since then hasn't been enough

They wear love like lighting,
It's something to see
And the years of their true love
Sits up on their sleeves.

Alice nudged Roy and points with her spoon
There sits two young lovers across the crowded room
You can tell by their look she say's kind of giddy and flushed
Roy grinned wry and wicked and Alice smiled and blushed

They wear love like lighting,
It's something to see
And the years of their true love
Sits up on their sleeves.

Roy gets a little misty Alice pats his hand
He's thinking bout the boy they lost in Vietnam
And the girl he'd brought home, and then left behind
And 40 years later she still sends cards at Christmastime

They wear love like lighting,
It's something to see
And the years of their true love
Sits up on their sleeves.

Roy said, "Remember Alice you almost burned your diary
All those poems and love letters I sent from overseas
Alice says" I couldn't, even though I tried
And I suppose the children will really be surprised."

They wear love like lighting,
It's something to see
And the years of their true love
Sits up on their sleeves.

Roy touched her face, Alice smiles at him
Bowed her heads a moment and whispered "Amen"
If you look a little sideways, I'm not sure what it means
II swear it was an angel, that passed her the cream
