my first lover lyrics – gillian welch

“my first lover”

my first lover
my first lover

he was tall and breezy with his long hair down
but he gets a little hazy when i think of him now

my first lover
my first lover

he was always talking tryin’ to bring me down
but i was not waiting for a white wedding gown

from my first lover

i do not remember any goin’ wrong
just a record playin’ that old steve miller song

quicksilver girl
quicksilver girl

at a surfer party with the whiskey pourin’
and the bottle rollin’ i was on the floor

with my first lover
my first lover

i do not remember any fights or fits
just a shaky morning after callin’ it quits

with my first lover

quicksilver girl
quicksilver girl
quicksilver girl and she’s free
