MARK WILLS


Emily Harper Lyrics

Emily sat right next to me
five days a week in the same bus seat
for a girl she was pretty cool
She wore an old ball cap, hated lace
made a mean short stop and second base
never missed a day of sunday school.
And I never told a soul back then
but Emily Harper was my best friend!

We carved our names on an old old limb
on the bank of the creek where we used to swim
a farmers son and a preachers only daughter
we ran bare foot throught the garden gate
all afternood we'd laugh and play
til the sun went down on me and Emily Harper.

About the time I turned sixteen,
I noticed Emily's eyes were green
and how they shined when I made her laugh.
I liked it when her hair was down.
I hated other guys around.
I played it cool, but I had it bad.
Lord her daddy had a fit
when he caught me stealing my first kiss.

We carved a heart on that old old limb on the bank of the
creek where we used to swim
a farmers son and a preachers only daughter
we used to sneak off in my daddy's car
sit on the hood and count the stars
til the sun came up on me and Emily Harper.

It all seemed just like yesterday
we grew up but some things never change
we still hold hands by that old old limb
on the bank of the creek where we used to swim
a farmers son and a preachers only daughter
we vowed to grow old side by side
til the sun goes down on me and Emily Harper.

Emily Harper.
Me and Emily Harper!
