my first kiss was a catholic girl
with her white socks to her knees
she wasn't hard to look at Lord
she was easy to please
the prettiest girl was a baptist girl
long dress to her shoes
say you can't go back, well I don't want to
but I still can't shake her loose
can't shake her loose

the saddest girl had a room inside
where she cried when she called my name
bounced around in a runaway ricochet
who's to say who was to blame
the prettiest girl was a baptist girl,
a Sunday cigarette a Charleston chew
Say you can't go back, well I don't want to,
but I still can't shake or loose
can't shake her loose

I was thinking of her on the ride over
I was thinking of her on the ride over
I was thinking of her on the ride over to you

the happiest girl wears a good man's ring
like an answer to a prayer
if she never heard my name again
I'm sure she wouldn't care
the prettiest girl, was a Baptist girl
amen, hallelu
can't go back, I don't want to
but I still can't shake her loose
can't shake her loose
