From "Drive",  2002, Arista Nashville.
Transcribed by Darien Rhoton

[Verse 1]
G                      D
I was fifteen, she was eighteen,
G                       C            G    
The prettiest thing I'd ever seen in my life.
                         D
An' I loved her at first sight.
        G          D       G             C
I found her in Marietta, a town north of Atlanta.
              G              D
I brought her home to see my folks,
               G
They loved her too.

[Verse 2]
                       D
We were together for a long time,
           G            C
Thought it would be for all time.
           G                                 D
But things change and re-arrange, she had to go.
            G           C             G            C
She left me cryin' in '79, an airline pilot in Caroline.
        G                    D 
I was a wreck, can't drive a check:
            G
It broke my heart.

[chorus]
         C                 D
My first love was an older woman.
C
There's been many since,
             D
But there'll never be another.
         G              C              G          C
Built in nineteen fifty-five, snowshoe white, overdrive,
                  G                     D
I should've never sold her, I'll always love her,
        G
She was mine.


Instrumental Break.


[same as verse 1]
Years went by, teardrops dried;
I got her back, I was surprised.
In '93, a gift to me on Christmas Eve.
We were both older, so I restored her.
Could've sold her, for a lot more.
But I will never, she's mine forever,
Until I go.

[chorus]

C          G                       D    
I'll never sell her, she's mine forever,
           G
I love her so.
