Track Name: Dear Babe
Babe's on the back deck
Pretty girl from Quebec
Speaks to her silhouette
Reminds me of when we met
Lips moving to a song from some cowboy band
Sun's going down like her evening gown
Tuesday she says she'll be skipping town
Heading out west has always been a dream to her

Said Toronto never meant nothing to her
She was rolling out all the way to Vancouver
Her sisters were there ever since they ran away
Said before I go can you take me to the teller
She said she had to visit the fortune seller
Ready to sell him back what he once sold her

She said don't you miss me
Why don't you kiss me
Oh don't you ever fall in love
Oh don't you miss me
Why don't you kiss me
Oh don't you ever fall in love

Jim used to see Babe until she left him
Said she never loved him, she knew I never liked Jim
And since we were young Jim and I never got along
Tuesday came fast like a shotgun blast
Jim showed up trying to win Babe back
Jim saw me and that's when things got out of hand
Oh he punched me in the shoulder, knocked the table over
Jim was never sober, the fight far from over
Babe was in between trying to get Jim settled down
Jim turned around and pushed Babe to the ground
I'll always think of Jim when I hear that sound
Babe was down and she never got up again

She said don't you miss me
Why don't you kiss me
Oh don't you ever fall in love
Oh don't you miss me
Why don't you kiss me
Oh don't you ever fall in love

She said don't you miss me
Why don't you kiss me
Oh don't you ever fall in love
Oh don't you miss me
Why don't you kiss me
Oh don't you ever fall in love
