Young Love, Sung by Grandpa $'s Grandkids and Great Grandkids

This was most of the grandkids and great grandkids of Grandpa $, sung at his funeral service.  Please listen to the introduction too.  I will post the picture that goes with this when I figure out how to do that.

Great grandson's Mason and Trevor (guitar and ukelele), grandson Mark on drum, and Grandson Mike on guitar.

Young Love, sung by Grandkids and Great Grandkids of Grandpa $

Intro – C x 4 bars (16 counts)

1st verse
She was sitting cross-legged on a hood of a Ford
Filing down her nails with an emery board
Talking to her friends about people they knew
And all of the things that young girls do
When she said, "You see that guy in the baseball cap?
I'd like to spend some time with a boy like that."
Betty said, "I've seen him at the hardware store.
I think his name is Billy, but I'm not sure."
And as they talked a little while he passed by
She smiled at him he just said "Hi."
He was thinking to himself as he walked away
Man, I'd like to find a girl like her someday

           F                C                 G                       C
         Young love, strong love, true love, it's a new love
                                                 F                 C
They're gonna make it through the hard times, walk those lines
                         G                                     C         
                Yeah, these ties will bind,  young love

2nd verse
Well, she just couldn't stop herself from thinking 'bout him
And at a store downtown she saw him again
She had both hands full, he held open the door
He said, "My name is Billy. I've seen you before.
Can I help you with these? Can I give you a ride?
Can I take you out on a Saturday night?"
She didn't have to say what she was feeling inside
He could see the answer shining in her eyes

[Repeat Chorus]

3rd verse
Well, from that day on you couldn't keep them apart
They were side by side, heart to heart
Mama cried as Billy slipped the ring on her hand
And when the baby was born she was crying again
Well, he worked real hard and put some money down
On a little old house at the edge of town
And that night as he held her he couldn't believe
That God had made a girl that he'd never ever leave

[Repeat Chorus]

(Halle solo)
She was sitting cross-legged on the hood of a Ford
Filing down her nails with an emery board

End with same as intro, 4 bars of C, (16 counts)
