SIXTEEN SUMMERS FIFTEEN FALLS (Townes Van Zandt) Townes Van Zandt - 1968 Let me tell you a story 'bout a girl I knew Fairest skin with eyes of blue I swear to the Lord that I loved her true It's a year now she's been gone Well her spirit was as bright as the soft sunshine Lips the colour of strawberry wine I wish to God she still was mine But the chance won't come again Af first we lay in love's sweet bed With one look at her eyes I might have read All the pain that was flyin' through her head Through my guilt I could not see Oh, I turned to her when the morning came Hungry thoughts racin' through my brain But the knife in her heart screamed herself she'd slain And a note whispered love too soon Her old man screamed and her mother cried All I could do was to wonder why A girl in her youth was forced to die Is lovin' such a crime She died few in years with breasts still small Seein' sixteens summers and fifteen falls Me and my blindness never realized all The fear she kept inside Let me tell you a story 'bout a girl I knew Fairest skin with eyes of blue I swear to the Lord that I loved her true ........ FADE (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - November 2013)
