Katie And Tommy

This song is by Trisha Yearwood.

Katie sits on her old front porch
Watching the chickens peck the ground
There ain't a whole lot goin' on tonight
In this one horse town

Over yonder comin' up the road
In a beat up Chevy truck
Her boyfriend Tommy is layin' on the horn
Splashin' through the mud and the muck

Her daddy says he ain't worth the lip
When it comes to brains he's got the short end of the stick
But Katie's young and she don't give a care
She'd follow Tommy anywhere

She's in love with the boy
She's in love with the boy
She's in love with the boy
And even if they had to run away
She's gonna marry that boy someday

Katie and Tommy at the drive-in movie
Parked in the very last row
They're too busy holding on to one another
To even care about the show

Later on outside the Tasty freeze
Tommy slips something on her hand
He says my high school ring will have to do
Till I can buy a wedding band

Her daddy says he ain't worth the lip
When it comes to brains he's got the short end of the stick
But Katie's young and she don't give a care
She'd follow Tommy anywhere

She's in love with the boy
She's in love with the boy
She's in love with the boy
And even if they had to run away
She's gonna marry that boy someday

Her daddy's waiting up at half past twelve
When they come sneaking up the walk
He says young lady get on up to your room
While me and junior have a talk

Momma breaks in and says don't lose your temper
Wasn't very long ago
You yourself was just a hasty plowboy
Didn't have a load of hope

My daddy's said you wasn't worth a lick
When it comes to brains you got the short end of the stick
But he was wrong and honey, you are too
Katie looks at Tommy like I still look at you

She's in love with the boy
She's in love with the boy
She's in love with the boy
What's meant to be will always find a way

She's in love with the boy
She's in love with the boy
She's in love with the boy
What's meant to be will always find a way
She's gonna marry that boy someday
