TOO FAST FOR RAPID CITY (Layng Martine Jr.) Sheila Andrews - 1978 Well, the summer I was sixteen, my Daddy caught me In a compromisin' spot with a boy I knew And it wasn't long after that, he caught me way out back With another young man and a jug of mountain booze And he spread the word around that I was a wild child I could hear them whisper everywhere I'd go Well the rumours they persisted and I kept right on resistin' Till one night Daddy knocked me to the floor He said, "You're livin' just a little bit too fast for Rapid City Better slow down, girl, think about who you are You're livin' just a little too fast for Rapid City And you're gonna wake up someday, see the future has gone away And the woman that you could have been ain't comin' back again" Well, the years slipped by before I hardly knew Pretty soon I dug a hole so deep, the boy that I'd been lovin' Left me with a kid and one in the oven Plus twenty-three bucks and a shack on a dead end street One afternoon I was swingin' on a tire in the backyard With some dreams and some moonshine in my head And my little girl thinks she's grown, she came home last night at dawn She laughed right in my face when I said You're livin' just a little bit too fast for Rapid City You better slow down, girl, think about who you are You're livin' just a little too fast for Rapid City And you're gonna wake up someday, see the future has gone away And the woman that you could have been ain't comin' back again Livin' just a little bit too fast for Rapid City You better slow down, girl, think about who you are You're livin' just a little too fast for Rapid City And you're gonna wake up someday ......
