Make Up And Faded Blue Jeans Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

In downtown Modesto, I was workin' the Holiday Inn
I would stick with a gig that would last us throughout the weekend
I was singing a new song I'd wrote on the way into town
When she came in the front door and found her a place to sit down

Hey, I knew right away that she like the words to my song
'Cause she stared at my git guitar and followed my fingers too long
And she had the likeness of a girl I'd seen in my dreams
But lights can do wonders with make up and faded blue jeans

And the last thing I needed was somebody messin' up my mind
So I found a hundred reasons for lookin' her way one more time
She could cause me to sing bad and fall out of love with guitar
And blow all my chances and at bein' a big singing star

With one passin' glance I could tell she was young for her age
Yeah, she got to looking better as she got down closer to the stage
And as she sipped on her wine I knew just the kind she would be
And somehow I knew she was here to the bad things to me

And the last thing I needed was somebody messin' up my mind
So I found a hundred reasons for lookin' her way one more time
She could cause me to sing bad and fall out of love with guitar
And blow all my chances and at bein' a big singing star

She could cause me to sing bad and fall out of love with guitar
And blow all my chances and at bein' a big singing star
