Gainesville Girl

Lyrics

I caught my first glimpse in a Benson bar

Didn't make since, look how we've come so far

But every time it seems like we're getting close

You run and act like you've just seen a ghost

 

They say less is more baby, more or less

Well, I'm a simple man

Honey, I confess

Like a new born tugging at your breast

Will steal the heartache right out from your chest

 

Timber! The sky is falling down

And the stars are swimming 

Looks like they're gonna drown

Well, these kind of tears

They can flood the whole world

And they all fall from the heart

Of a Gainesville girl

 

They all fall from the heart

Of a Gainesville girl

 

Hush now darlin', don't shed a word

And nevermind what you may have heard

I want to take a drive and let the tank run dry

Until there ain't another tear in your eye

 

Timber! The sky is falling down

And the stars are swimming 

Looks like they're gonna drown

Well, these kind of tears

They can flood the whole world

And they all fall from the heart

Of a Gainesville girl

 

They all fall from the heart

Of a Gainesville girl
