I Fell in Love with a Young Young Girl
©Roger Bain 2018

I fell in love with a young young girl (3X)
I was not too very old myself

We traveled around, let our hair hang down
We traveled around, let our hair hang down

We left Illinois for the Rocky Mountains
We tasted the snow from the alpine passes
We listened to the leaves of the shimmering Aspens
We slept in a field of curious horses
We drank from a stream that was clear and flowing
We each had a backpack with a summer of clothing
I had my guitar and you had your camera
I fell in love with a young young girl

We hitched a ride in a van out of Boulder
We counted the stars every night before sleeping
We swam in a reservoir desert oasis
We picked up a girl who was hitching to Reno
We slept by the road near the roadside attraction
We ate apple pie at a truck stop for breakfast
I had my guitar and you had your camera
I fell in love with a young young girl

We drove on the highway through Sierra Nevada
We were so excited to be in California
We looked out the window at the towering pine trees
We looked out the window at the wildflower meadows
We went for an hour not saying a word now
We went for a hike at the top of the young world
I had my guitar and you had your camera
I fell in love with a young young girl

We breathed in the ocean at San Francisco
We hung out with friends who were living on nothing
Went over to Berkley, for a Country Joe concert
We ordered fried rice from the Moon café
We watched the old men playing their bocci
In a green corner of Golden Gate Park now
In a green corner of the USA now
In a green corner of the planet earth now
I had my guitar and you had your camera
I fell in love with a young young girl
