  sun - shine of  her   life
A
Back in the country
                     D 
Living on the Double E
       F        G      A
In the sunshine of her life.

There's a really young filly 
But Mom and Daddy won't let her leave.
Mom and Poppa won't let her go.
G        D            A
But when she goes out dancing
G               D        A
 She breaks out on her own.
G                    D         A
 She's hot enough to burn the house down.
G                      D
 Mom and Poppa don't know.

When Edith and Earl renamed the Double E
They nearly made history.
The locals rose up and some of them were mad as hell
'Cause it used to be the Double L.
Change comes slow in the country.
When you're new there's a lot of distrust.
Years fly by uneventful.
Memories turn to dust.
Meanwhile Granny has got her bright colors on
And the sunshine in her eye.
Cruising by the bars and honkey tonks where she met grandpa
And caught that young man's eye.
Dusty white Eldorado,
Cruising through the trees.
Slipping through the shadows
Of what used to be.

 Li-ving in the summer of love
Grandma's okay,
But not the same since Grandpa's gone.
She's living in the summer of love.

Back in the day,
Living in the summer of love.
Living in the summer of love.

Back in the day,
Living in the summer of love.
Living in the summer of love.
