Remember A Time

Remember a time, I remember it well
Deep south in Georgia, just north of hell
The nights were fine, but the sun was mean
Then, there she stood, the prettiest girl I'd ever seen

It's alright, she said, the water's fine, it's yours and mine
So won't you come on in?
It's alright, she said, 'cuz I won't tell, that's just as well
You've got the prettiest face I've ever seen

Sleeping on the river was the 'Catfish Queen'
Been runnin' about a hundred years or so, on steam
So we sat there next to the ferryboat wheel
Just closed our eyes to see what we could feel

It's alright, she said, the water's fine, it's yours and mine
So won't you come on in?
It's alright, she said, 'cuz I won't tell, and it's just as well
She got the prettiest face I'd ever seen
We rode into town, she said Breakfast's on me
I ordered coffee, she ordered tea
I lit up a cigarette thinking hard of what to say
She kept looking at me, and then she'd look away

It's alright, she'd said, the water's fine, it's yours and mine
So won't you come on in?
It's alright, she'd said, 'cuz I won't tell, and that's just as well
She had the prettiest face I'd ever seen

Remember a time, yes, I remember it well
Two nights in Georgia, just north of hell
The days were fine, man that sun was mean
And there she stood, damn near the prettiest girl I'd ever seen

It's alright, she'd said, the water's fine, it's yours and mine
So won't you come on in?
It's alright, she'd said, 'cuz I won't tell, and that's just as well
You've got the prettiest face I'd ever seen
