Katie’s sitting on the old front porch
Watching the chickens peck the ground
There ain’t a whole lot going on tonight
In this one horse town
Over yonder, coming up the road
In a beat-up Chevy truck
Her boyfriend Tommy, he’s laying on the horn
Splashing through the mud and the muck

Her daddy says
“He ain’t worth a lick
When it came to brains
He got the short end of the stick”
But Katie’s young and man she just don’t care
She’d follow Tommy anywhere

She’s in love with the boy (x3)
And even if they have to run away
She’s gonna marry that boy someday

Katie and Tommy at the drive-in movie
Parked in the very last row
They’re too busy holding on to one another
To even care about the show
But later on outside the Tastee Freeze
Tommy slips something on her hand
He says, “My high school ring will have to do
Til I can buy a wedding band”

Her daddy says
“He ain’t worth a lick
When it came to brains
He got the short end of the stick”
But Katie’s young and man she just don’t care
She’d follow Tommy anywhere

She’s in love with the boy (x3)
And even if they have to run away
She’s gonna marry that boy someday

Her daddy’s waiting up till half past twelve
When they come sneaking up the walk
He says, “young lady get on up to your room
While me and junior have a talk”
But Mama breaks in and says, “don’t lose your temper
It wasn’t very long ago
When you yourself was just a hay-seed plowboy
Who didn’t have a row to hoe

My daddy said you wasn’t worth a lick
When it came to brains
You had the short end of the stick
But he was wrong and honey you are too
Katie looks at Tommy like I still look at you”

She’s in love with the boy (x3)
What’s meant to be will always find a way
She’s in love with the boy (x3)

What’s meant to be will always find a way
She’s gonna marry that boy someday
She’s in love with the boy
