Spend My Love

Spend My Love

Right along the time I met you 

Life was spinning on its wheels

Same old story, but you came

And taught me how to feel


You said our time ahead is sure and certain

Just like our love will always be

But, babe, I wanna know

How did you spend your days before you fell for me?


Georgia was where I spent my summers

Underneath that dogwood tree

In Caroline I spent my broken-hearted days

Trying to mend what they’d done to me

I could spend my life with anyone under the sky above

But you’re where I wanna spend my love


Thought that I’d been kissed and loved

But all those fly-by-nights were fleeting fast

This new beginning’s power

Can whittle down the roughest past


I know our time ahead is sure and certain

Just like our love will always be

But in case you wanna know

Just how I spent my days before you captured me


Georgia was where I spent my summers

Underneath that dogwood tree

In Caroline I spent my broken-hearted days

Trying to mend what they’d done to me

I could spend my life with anyone under the sky above

But you’re where I wanna spend my love


Fancy things can’t buy us pleasure

We’ll be rich as rebel thieves

The time ahead is where we’ll find a life that’s full with every precious thing


Now with you is where I’ll spend my summers

Underneath that dogwood tree

In Caroline we’ll spend all of our days

Can’t believe the good you’ve done for me

I could spend my life with anyone under the sky above

But you’re where I wanna spend my love
