A Country and Western song
I met my old flame at the fair.
She held on to some guy.
She smiled and said hello to me;
I quickly said goodbye.

There was a teardrop in my eye
I deftly wiped away.
I don’t want her to pity me.
It’s better off this way.

For we were once a happy pair,
together for so long.
But now that’s just a memory,
a Country Western song.

I’ve tried to put her in the past
and get on with my life,
but still I can’t help fantasize.
She could have been my wife.

But I was such a stubborn fool.
I loved that pick-up truck.
She said it was that truck or her
… I wished her lots of luck.

Man, I really do love that truck.
