She left her neighborhood
In which everyone was filthy rich
She left her parent's home
And strained with a vagabond
Who made piles of love she never heard
And she believed his every word

She left no forwarding address
Just took her youth and happiness
As with the boy she vanished in
The secret sweetness of their sin

Oh, young girl
Oh, young girl of sixteen
Child of spring-time
Still green
Lying there by the road

He told her, "love demanded space"
So they roamed from place to place
Although she realized she'd sinned
She grew caution to the wind
As she followed him around
While he slowly dragged her down

So overpowering was her love
The it had made a captive of
The young girl's heart and soul and mind
In other words: love drove her blind

Oh, young girl
Oh, young girl of sixteen
Child of spring-time
Still green
Laying there by the road

Too much emotion for a girl
She let her heart become her world
What world that God has never rocked
For a sunder we are taught
Had she been wise and she'd have known
She could feed him love alone

She should of known the day would come
When he would quit her just for crumbs
He needed fresh young meat to love
And left her heart and mind to starve

Oh, young girl
Oh, young girl of sixteen
Child of spring-time
Still green
Lying there by the road
