Lyrics

Running down D Street, Annie and me
Out to prove our parents wrong
Our moms were scared we’d go on over there
To that world where we didn’t belong

We walked across the tracks, you were standing in the backyard
Hanging out your clothes to dry
I’d never seen your home, and I really didn’t know
If there was even a reason why

All of their rules could never really keep us apart
We were just kids, bright eyed girls with loving hearts

Your mama was a Christian lady
She wore a pretty yellow dress
Looking back, I can see how Annie and me
could have made her nervous, I guess

But she gave us all some punch and cookies
Just like other mothers do
The three of us girls whispering and giggling
Just like we did in school

All of their rules, could never really keep us apart
We were just kids, bright eyed girls with loving hearts

Dark skin, light skin, we didn’t care
Growing up in the middle of nowhere
We played together in our little school yard
Never new why they had to make it so hard

Didn’t they know, they didn’t need to keep us apart
We were just kids, bright eyed girls with loving hearts
