lyrics

Tickets to the picture show
I borrowed my mother's car
Glancing into my rearview mirror
Rehearsing every word I plan to say

Beautiful young Betty Lou
In her new red dress and matching shoes
She smiled at me as she closed the door,
Kissed her father once, and then once more

I don't want you to get the wrong idea
I'm not that kind of guy, I can assure you
I just need a quiet place for you to feel
How I feel with no distractions

So instead of going to the show
I have another place to go
Now you've told me that you feel the same
Condensation forms upon the window pane

I never heard him crawl inside
I didn't see the shadows in his eyes
But as I screamed, "I love you, Betty Lou"
I felt the bullet pierce through me then heard him shoot you too

I don't want you to get the wrong idea
I'm not an evil man, I can assure you
I just need a quiet place to make you feel
What I feel with no distractions
