You thought I was dangerous, I thought you were cool
I met you in a parking lot one day after school
We didn't have no money, we didn't have no sense
You jumped in beside me, and then we jumped the fence.

We had just enough gas to get to Memphis
Just the right song playing on the radio
Just enough highway to push the limit
You and me baby and just enough rope

Oh, just enough rope
Barely hangin' on, barely in control
You and me baby and just enough rope

I was wild about you, you gave me your heart
We made a solemn promise to never be apart
Days turned into months yeah, we were runnin' free
You and me together and baby makes three

We had just enough pride to think we'd make it
Just enough ride to know the way to go
Just enough time to find a preacher
We tied the knot with just enough rope

Oh, just enough rope
Barely hangin' on, barely in control
You and me baby and just enough rope

We could have hung ourselves out to dry
But we wrapped it around you and I
Then we pulled it tight
Here we stand ready to turn another page
Some things just get better with age
I've been lovin' you since I can't remember when
I said it before and I'll say it again

We got just enough fire to keep it burning
Just neough dream to never give up hope
Just neough love to last forever
We keep it tied together with just enough rope
We keept it all together with just enough rope

Oh, just enough rope
We're still hangin' on we're still going strong
Just enough rope
Oh, just enough rope
'Round and around and around we go
