Some Girls

from Folk Remedy

Sarah worked on South Street at a second hand book store
She was half a virgin mary half a hundred dollar whore
First time that I saw her it was at an open mic
She touched my arm and told me I wrote a song that she liked
I thought she was pretty but I hadn't fallen yet
Some girls you dont remember, some girls you dont forget

Well, the next time I saw Sarah, she was naked in my bed
I picked the lock and found my way upstairs she laughed and said
Half monkey and half sweetness was the love we made
All of that cold nightime and half of the next day
Will I see you tomorrow? I think it's a safe bet
Some girls you don't remember, some girls you don't forget

Well the next thing that I knew Sarah had her own drawer
A toothbrush in my bathroom and a key to my door
She didn't have the sweetest voice that a person ever heard
But she'd come out to my gigs and she'd sing every word
She'd show up during soundcheck and stay for the last set
Some girls you don't remember, some girls you dont forget

Well I never figured myself to be one half of this
Walkin round with stupid grin, stuffed all full of this
It had to hurt to have to tell her I was goin on the road
Big hazel eyes just melted me when she said "can I go?"
I wont take up much room I'll just pack of cigarettes
Some girls you don't remember, some girls you don't forget

Well we put a thousand miles on that beat up foreign car
Whenever weather would permit we'd make love under the stars
Our happiness completed by being attached and being free
We would each take turns being Bobby McGee
We were headed for Salinas, but we hadn't got there yet
Some girls you don't remember, some girls you don't forget

I woke up at the closin of the metal motel door
A note left on the pillow had made it to the floor
It said boy you know I love you but I also have this hunch
That soon you're gonna leave me so I'll beat you to the punch
Please know that I spent this time with not a one regret
Some girls you don't remember, some girls you don't forget

I spent about a month in bed feeling sad and dumped
But then I went to find a skimmy who could give my heart a jump
I went home with anything that would have me in her place
But the only way I functioned was to think of Sarah's face
Even if is knocking boots with a former penthouse pet
Some girls you dont remember some girls you don't forget

Well I heard Sarah's back on South Street at that same book store
I could stop in to say hi, but it won't be like before
That time had a certain magic that I'll never know again
Besides I heard she's sleepin with one of my old friends
But I wonder if I ever bubble up inside her head
Am I a boy she don't remember or a boy she don't forget
