Lyrics

Katie's sitting on the old front porch Watching the chickens peck the ground There ain't a whole lot going on tonight In this one horse town. Over yonder, coming up the road In a beat-up Chevy truck Her boyfriend Tommy, he's laying on the horn Splashing through the mud and the muck

Her daddy says, "he ain't worth a lick When it came to brains, he got the short end of the stick" But Katie's young and man she just don't care She'd follow Tommy anywhere She's in love with the boy She's in love with the boy She's in love with the boy And even if they have to run away She's gonna marry that boy someday Katie and Tommy at the drive-in movie Parked in the very last row They're too busy holding on to one another To even care about the show But later on outside the Tastee Freeze, Tommy slips something on her hand He says, "my high school ring will have to do Till I can buy a wedding band" Her daddy says, "he ain't worth a lick When it came to brains, he got the short end of the stick" But Katie's young and man she just don't care She'd follow Tommy anywhere She's in love with the boy She's in love with the boy She's in love with the boy And even if they have to run away She's gonna marry that boy someday Her daddy's waiting up till half past twelve When they come sneaking up the walk He says, "young lady get on up to your room While me and junior have a talk" But Mama breaks in and says, "don't lose your temper It wasn't very long ago When you yourself was just a hay-seed plowboy Who didn't have a row to hoe" "My daddy said you wasn't worth a lick When it came to brains, you had the short end of the stick But he was wrong and honey you are too Katie looks at Tommy like I still look at you" She's in love with the boy She's in love with the boy She's in love with the boy What's meant to be will always find a way She's in love with the boy She's in love with the boy She's in love with the boy What's meant to be will always find a way She's gonna marry that boy someday. She's in love with the boy....
