Before he was my husband....
Before he was my lover ;) ....... (lover just rolls off the tongue so smooth I had to say it).
Before he was a Marine.
Way back when he was your typical American teenage boy. Back then he was one of those "boys of fall" Kenny Chesney sang about.
Babbles: "So you realize Marine is kinda of a big deal right?" Me: "Uh.... ok." Babbles: "I mean you do know he was like one of the star football players in high school?!" Me: "Ummmm....." Babbles, "He still holds 2, TWO, school records." Me: "Wow.... ok." Babbles: "Scouts used to come to our po-dunk town to watch him." Me: "Wow....." Silence Babbles: "I really can't believe you sometimes."
When I feel that chill, smell that fresh cut grass
I'm back in my helmet, cleats and shoulder pads
Standing in the huddle listening to the call
Fans going crazy for the boys of fall
They didn't let just anybody in that club
Took every ounce of heart and sweat and blood
To get to wear those game day jerseys down the hall
Kings of the school man, we're the boys of fall
