    Sister had a crystal voice
    She played a Silvertone from Montgomery Ward
    Baez songs in Monroe hair
    She sure could turn the boys' heads to stare
    Swim wear saunter, tan and haunt them
    that's all she learned in school
    Books were for the other girls
    and the other girls were fools
    In Texas back in sixty-nine
    it was drive-in movies and dashboard lights

    Father waltzed her down the aisle
    cuz college didn't suit her style
    The sad truth was that she could barely read
    but, if you'd told dear Father . . .
    he wouldn't believe you
    The telephone rang . . . it drove Mother insane
    from the hearts left on the shelf
    Sister's gone and she won't be home
    Cuz she didn't take care of herself
    In Texas back in sixty-nine
    it was drive-in movies and dashboard lights

    (chorus)
    Where is she now?
    The backseat Queen of fraternity
    Where is she now?
    She is heavy of thigh and light on integrity
    Someone should've told her
    when beauty's all you offer
    Too soon the world discovers that your
    beauty's gone
    (It's gone . . .)
    Mother can't you hear your daughter crying
    Father wake up her youth is dying
    Her kids are grown . . . Husband's gone away
    it's a shame cuz she had such a lovely face
    Can't you see she needed more
    than, "Oh, what a pretty child"?
    You never taught her truth from lie
    all you told her was to smile
    In Texas back in sixty-nine
    it was drive-in movies and dashboard lights

    (repeat chorus)

    In Texas back in sixty-nine
    it was drive-in movies and dashboard . . . lights
