first love lyrics – alan jackson

first love

i was fifteen, she was eighteen
the prettiest thing i’d ever seen in my life
i loved her at first sight
i found her in marietta, a town north of atlanta
i brought her home to see my folks
they loved her too

we were together for a long time
thought it would be for all time
but things change and rearrange
she had to go
she left me cryin’ in ’79
an airline pilot, in carolina
i was a wreck, can’t drive a check
it broke my heart

my first love was an older woman
there’s been many since
but there’ll never be another
built in 1955, snowshoe white, overdrive
i never should’ve sold her, i’ll always love her
she was mine

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

my first love was an older woman
there’s been many since
but there’ll never be another
built in 1955, snowshoe white, overdrive
i never should’ve sold her, i’ll always love her
she was mine

i’ll never sell her she’s mine forever
i love her so…
