      Townes Van Zandt - Sixteen Summers, Fifteen Falls Música y Letra

      Let me tell you a story 'bout a girl I knew
      Fairest skin with eyes of blue
      I swear to the lord that I loved her true
      It's a year now she's been gone
      
      Well her spirit was as bright as the soft sunshine
      Lips the color of strawberry wine
      I wish to God she still was mine
      But the chance won't come again
      
      After first we lay in love's sweet bed
      With one look at her eyes I might have read
      All the pain that was flyin' through her head
      Through my guilt I could not see
      
      Oh, I turned to her when the mornin' came
      Hungry thoughts racin' through my brain
      But the knife in her heart screamed herself she'd slain
      And a note whispered love too soon
      
      Oh her old man screamed and her mother cried
      All I could do was to wonder why
      A girl in her youth was forced to die
      Is lovin' such a crime? 
      
      She died (few in years) with breasts still small
      Seeing sixteens summers and fifteen falls
      Me and my blindness never realized all
      The fear she kept inside
      
      Let me tell you a story 'bout a girl I knew
      Fairest skin with eyes of blue
      I swear to the lord that I loved her true
