It started way back in eight grade
I used to sit beside Emmie Lou Hayes
A pink dress, matching shoes, and a pony tail
She kissed me on the school bus and told me not to tell.
Next day I chased her around the playground
Across the monkey bars to the merry go round
and Emmie Lou got caught passing a note
Before the teacher took it I read what she wrote:
Do you love me?, Do you want to be my friend?
and if you do.
Then don't be afraid to take me by the hand
if you want to.
I think this is how love goes...check yes or no.
Then play intro
Now we're grown up and she's my wife
Still like two kids with stars in our eyes
Ain't much changed I still chase Emmie Lou
Up and down the hall,and the bed in our room.
Last night I took her out in a white limousine
Twenty years togethor and she still gets to me
can't believe it's been that long ago
when we got started with just a little note.
