John denver - Along for the ride ('56 t-bird)

I had a '56 T-Bird, then I was king of the highway
Trying to make it look fast and easy and dreaming of doing it my way
Let's put the top down, baby, feel the wind in our hair
We were too young to know better and to cool to care
All I wanted was you by my side, baby, you're only along for the ride, only along for the ride


Rock and roll on the radio, let's turn it up and get down
Convertible dreams running wild in the streets in the all time American town
When you played the thrill queen, baby, I heard the jazz of joy
You were every girl in the world but I wasn't every boy
All I wanted was you by side, baby, you're only along for the ride
All I wanted was you by my side, baby, you're only along for the ride, only along for the ride

Memory pink and charcoal gray are the colors I painted this song
You were nineteen and perfect, baby, but no one stays perfect too long
All I wanted was you by my side, baby, you're only along for the ride, only along for the ride
