Rhyme Scheme: AAB CCD EEF GGB AAB HIB A

I drove past that old house todayA
Where we made love the very dayA
We bought that old house that you and I once lovedB
-
I stopped out front and got out the carC
Just wondering where on earth you areC
I never meant for us to be apartD
-
I thought I saw you standing thereE
With your blue eyes and auburn hairE
But I guess I was dreaming againF
-
That old house really looks badG
And without your love it s really sadG
That old house that you and I once lovedB
-
You took your half and moved awayA
I haven t seen you since that dayA
You left that old house that you and I once lovedB
-
If you should ever come to townH
I hope you d just drive aroundI
To that old house that you and I once lovedB
-
I drove past that old house todayA

Poet's note: This song has a story. My girlfriend and I were coming back from my cabin on the river, And there was an old house, she said, "stop and let's look at it, we could fix it up and sell it" A year or so later when coming back from the river I saw that old house. (The girlfriend was no longer in the picture) I wrote this song. [email protected]
