i was blown away lyrics – pam tillis

you drove up in your pickup truck
that hot september day
not a wisp of wind in the parking lot
but honey i was blown away

and later on that fall at the dixie mall
when i didn’t know what to say
i seen hide nor hair of no dynamite
but honey i was blown away

big sister said “you’d better watch out”
i slammed my door and said
“you don’t know what you’re talkin’ about”

mama said i sang when the telephone rang
and she called out “honey, it’s ray”
like a piece of dust on a four lane road
honey i was blown away

i’m talking ’bout smithereens
just you in a pair of jeans
now i know what crazy means

big sister said “you’d better watch out”
i slammed my door and said
“you don’t know what you’re talkin’ about”

then one tuesday night daddy said
“some guy’s on the porch with a big bouquet”
you stood there with your slicked-back hair
and honey, i was blown away

and when we slipped out back
across the railroad track
and you softly touched my face
well i never did feel a train go by
but honey, i was blown away

no, i never did feel a train go by
but honey, i was blown away
