Every March for the past twenty years, hubby and I and the dogs have traveled to Florida.
Ruby Falls and Rock City,
Are so in love, it's a doggone pity.

"Cause Ruby's husband is Byers Blue,
'N Rock is wed to Maggie Drew.

If only they'd met, 'fore meeting others,
There'd be no need for forbidden lovers.

No need fer duckin' in-'n-out o' bars,
Or lovin' like teens on the back seat of cars.

Georgia to Tennessee, they rendezvous like crazy,
He says, "There we'll meet"; she says, "Fine with me."

Alco, Athens, Benton Station, Birchwood, too,
Cades Cove, Chattanooga and Chattooga, they often flew.

Doltewah, Englewood, Etowah 'n Lair,
Lover's Leap, Lookout Mountain and Lower Bon Air.

Ocoee, Pond Hill, Powells' and Sle Creek,
Where stangers' know not their reddened cheeks.
