​Cherry Bowl Drive-In

This song is by Joshua Kadison and appears on the EP Saturday Night In Storyville (1998) and on the album Vanishing America (2001).

Saw her at the Texico just the other day
Even more beautiful her hair had a touch of grey
We both stood and stared at each other
Couldn't say a word, then I said: "God, it's good to see you"
And she said: "Well, have you heard..."

"They're tearing down the Cherry Bowl Drive-In tomorrow
Where I first kissed you and ran my fingers through your hair
She's going away, all things must go some day
But I will still remember you there
Yes I will still remember you there"

Then I said: "Little Melissa, she's looking more and more like you
I saw her down on Maple Street she's even got your same smile too"
And my Jake junior says: "Daddy, someday I'm gonna marry that girl"
Isn't that just perfect, it's such a crazy world

"So they're tearing down the Cherry Bowl Drive-In tomorrow
Where I first kissed you and ran my fingers through your hair
She's going away, all things must go some day
But I will still remember you there"

"Can you get away tomorrow, if you can't I'll understand
It's just that when the big screen falls I wanna be holding your hand
Holding your hand"

"When they're tearing down the Cherry Bowl Drive-In tomorrow
Where I first kissed you and ran my fingers through your hair
She's going away, all things must go some day
But I will still remember you there
Yes, I will. Yes, I will
I will still remember us there
