lyrics

You were so pretty, you were so nice
You wore jeans and they fit just right
We had fun every Saturday night
You were so pretty, you were so nice

You packed your bags and you hit the road
You said goodbye to Eagle Grove
Went to New York City and Time Magazine
You were so pretty and you made the scene

You knew what you wanted
And what you had to do
You said "I'll be back for you"

Time Magazine said: “we want you to stay”
Forget that boy from Iowa
No matter what you try to do
All he does is criticize you

All I did was talk about Major Meing
I didn't want to do anything
All I did was talk about Sargent Phuong
Killed in Action, Province Quang Nam

You put me aside
Ever wonder if I cried
You were pretty and you made the scene
You had your career at the magazine

I went down to the VA man
Sometimes he understands
I beat that melancholy haze
People say they like me better this way

You retired at the top of your game
Guess what I did the same
You returned to run the family farm
Your still pretty you still got that charm

Janice I need to talk to you
Sorry for the things I put you through
I had it all and I was a fool
I had it made and I threw it away

Would it be a sin if I dropped you a line
How you doing I’m doing fine
You got your family I got mine
We can be friends just not that kind

You told me I needed to change
That's what I did I'm not the same
People say they like me better this way
Come on Janice what do you say

What would have happened if I was strong
Would you have stayed, would you have gone

What would have happened if I was strong
Would you have stayed, would you have gone

We are older, now we are mature
Different roads, they got us here
Our friendship, it can endure

We are older, now we are mature
Different roads, they brought us here
Our friendship, it can endure
