Red is about an old love affair and its memories that surface from time to time....

Lyrics

"Red"
By Rick Landers (c) 2021- BMI Work No: 050814006
Pentatonic - Capo at 4th fret.

She had long red hair,
Shone in a way so fair
She claimed she'd love
to take me home

I didn't stand a chance
her eyes they smiled
her eyes they danced
No bitterness
No sad song

Oh, she loved me well
Oh, she loved me

Well, I was just a boy,
nothing very special then
Hadn't written her a single tune
Her playful truth or dare
Soon would steal our innocence
Neither she nor me would truly
care

Oh, she loved me well
Oh, she loved me

And in the night
she'd said she loved me true
I didn't know, just what a man should do
And in the morning
we'd lie in bed
old and new memories
No more loving words were said

(Instrumental Break)

Oh, she loved me well
Oh, she loved me

As we lay there bare
She took me to the fair
Then whispered, "Please, young man
take me home."
And it was right 'round there
She gave me a ruby cross to bear
Leaving parts before unknown, exposed

Oh, she loved me well
Oh, she loved me

And in the night
she said she'd love me 'til the end
I still don't know if we were strangers
or just friends
And in the morning
we'd lie in bed
old and new memories
No more loving words were said

I didn't stand a chance
her eyes they smiled
her eyes they danced
No bitterness
That's why I wrote this song
And though it may sound strange
her gift of love it still remains
A love once was
Sometimes hangs 'round

Oh, she loved me well
Oh, she loved me
Oh...
Red loved me well
(Music fades)
