1959
Cigarettes were a quarter then
Bobby socks and jeans were in
Elvis sang the songs that we loved so
And the most important thing to us
Was keeping gas in my old truck
So I could take us to the drive-in show

Then graduation finally came, Uncle Sam called me away
You married someone else while I was gone
But I've kept your letter all these years
And I can't help but shed a tear
When I read the words you wrote me years ago

Baby I'm yours, I'll love you always
I'm gonna stand by you until the end of time
Remember all of the good things that we shared together
Signed, love Betty, 1959

I never will forget the day when you and I went all the way
I was the first for you and you for me
I've still got the truck that we loved in
It takes me back there now and then
Back to fifty nine in my memory

And baby I'm yours, I'll love you always
I'm gonna stand by you until the end of time
Remember all of the good things that we shared together
Signed, love Betty, 1959
