It started way back in third grade.
I used to sit beside Emmylou Hayes.
A pink dress, a matching bow, and her pony tail.
She kissed me on the school bus, but told me not to tell.
Next day I chased her round the playground
Across the monkey bars, to the merry-go-round
And emmylou got caught passing me a note
Before the teacher took it, I read what she wrote.
Do you love me, do you wanna be my friend?
And if you do, well then don't be afraid to take me by the hand
If you want to.
I think this is how love goes, check yes or no.
Now were grown up and she's my wife.
Still like two kids with stars in our eyes.
Aint much changed, I still chase Emmylou.
Up and down the hall, around the bed in our room.
Last night I took her out in a white limousine
Twenty years later, she still gets to me
Can't believe it's been that long ago.
When we got started with just a little note.
