Nanci Griffith
So Long Ago

My daddy sent me on to Baton Rouge in 1969

He said our love was like a forest fire and he'd end it with a mind

So you rode with us to Temple, Texas where I did catch the train

And I remember waving back at you from a silted window pane

And I said,"Fare thee well true love of mine"

And I said, "Fare thee well sweet lips of wine"

And you said, "Fare thee well my Texas rose"

And then you blew a kiss of innocence

As the trains began to roll, so long ago

You'd gone off to fight the war when I returned from school

And I traded in my innocence when the springtime came to bloom

And I married for my family, one night I dreamed of you

And you were running from me in the rain down on Congress Avenue

And I said,"Fare thee well true love of mine"

And I said, "Fare thee well sweet lips of wine"

And you said, "Fare thee well my Texas rose"

And then you blew a kiss of innocence

As the trains began to roll, so long ago

Now I saw you once in a crowded bar and it was Christmas time

I was frightened by the thunder of our hearts in '69

Because I live my life in whispers now and I choose to live alone

So I slipped back to the avenue and flipped my collar to the cold

And I said,"Fare thee well true love of mine"

And I said, "Fare thee well sweet lips of wine"

And you said, "Fare thee well my Texas rose"

And then you blew a kiss of innocence

As the trains began to roll, so long ago

Where did we go?

That long ago, so long ago


Mirror lyrics:

That long ago, so long ago

Where did we go?

As the trains began to roll, so long ago

And then you blew a kiss of innocence

And you said, "Fare thee well my Texas rose"

And I said, "Fare thee well sweet lips of wine"

And I said,"Fare thee well true love of mine"

So I slipped back to the avenue and flipped my collar to the cold

Because I live my life in whispers now and I choose to live alone

I was frightened by the thunder of our hearts in '69

Now I saw you once in a crowded bar and it was Christmas time

As the trains began to roll, so long ago

And then you blew a kiss of innocence

And you said, "Fare thee well my Texas rose"

And I said, "Fare thee well sweet lips of wine"

And I said,"Fare thee well true love of mine"

And you were running from me in the rain down on Congress Avenue

And I married for my family, one night I dreamed of you

And I traded in my innocence when the springtime came to bloom

You'd gone off to fight the war when I returned from school

As the trains began to roll, so long ago

And then you blew a kiss of innocence

And you said, "Fare thee well my Texas rose"

And I said, "Fare thee well sweet lips of wine"

And I said,"Fare thee well true love of mine"

And I remember waving back at you from a silted window pane

So you rode with us to Temple, Texas where I did catch the train

He said our love was like a forest fire and he'd end it with a mind

My daddy sent me on to Baton Rouge in 1969
