(Red Lane - Faron Young)
Well, this old picture is so faded you can hardly see
And that smiling face there in the middle
Well, you can see it's me
And that pretty girl there on my left
Was mine to hold so tight
But I lost her to my friend there on the right.
And that big house you see there in the background
That big shiny car I bought to drive her around
And just to keep her happy I worked hard both day and night
Now it all belongs to my friend there on the right.
The picture showed the truth but I was oh, so blind
I was a guy in the middle all the times
I filled my hopes up till they were out of sight
And then she walked away with my friend there on the right.
--- Instrumental ---
The picture showed the truth but I was oh, so blind
I was a guy in the middle all the times
I filled my hopes up till they were out of sight
And then she walked away with my friend there on the right.
Yes, she walked away with my friend there on the right...
