I was twenty and she was eighteen We were just about as wild as we were green In the ways of the world She'd pick me up in that red rag top
We were free of the folks and hiding from the cops
On a summer night Running all the red lights We'd park way out in a clearing in a grove And the night was as hot as a coal-burning stove We were cooking with gas
Knew it had to last

In the back of that red rag top
She said please don't stop

Well the very first time her mother met me
Her green-eyed girl had been a mother-to-be
For two weeks I was out of job and she was in school And life was fast and the world was cruel We were young and wild
We decided not to have the child So we did what we did and we tried to forget And we swore up and down there would be no regrets In the morning light
But on the way home that night 
In the back of that red rag top
She said please don't stop

We took one more trip around the sun
But it was all make believe in the end
And no I can't say where she is today I can't remember who I was back then

Well you do what you do and you pay for your sins
And there's no such thing as what might have been
That's a waste of time Drive you out of your mind
I was stopped at a red light just yesterday Beside a young girl in a cabriolet And her eyes were green And I was in an old scene 
I was back in that red rag top
On the day she stopped loving me
I was back in that red rag top
On the day she stopped loving me
