I was so excited when you asked if I could go
But mom said I'd have to ask my daddy
I met him at the front door, so afraid that he'd say no
But he smiled and said, "Let mama get you ready"
In your cotton shirt and faded jeans, you came for me
And the gingham dress was all I had to wear
With a dollar in your pocket and a borrowed car
You picked a yellow daisy for my hair
