Katie was a looker, the finest thing I'd ever seen.
I got the courage, to ask her out when I turned eighteen.
Saturday, 8'oclock and not a minute late.
I pulled up in my beat up truck, and we headed towards the lake.

(Chorus 1)
She said, "Boy I sure do love your smile.
And I hope we can stay here for awhile.
But to tell the truth, I always knew.
I'd end up with a country boy like you."

A few years down the road, we both said, "I do."
Then we left that sleepy little town on a honeymoon cruise.
Soaking up the sunlight, and dancing on the beach.
I could feel the love she felt, when she looked at me.

(Chorus 2)
She said, "Boy I sure do love your smile.
And I hope we can stay here for awhile.
And to tell the truth, I always knew.
I'd end up with a country boy like you."

I got a call at about 7:15 from a hospital room.
I heard the nurse on the other end say, "I know it's hard to understand, but get here just as quick as you can. There's been an accident."
I'm here at her bedside and trying not cry.
The doctor said, "She ain't got long, time to say goodbye."

Katie opened her soft green eyes, and she looked at me.
I moved closer by her side, and I got down on my knees.

(Chorus 3)
And I said, "Girl I sure do love your smile.
And I know you need to go in a little while."
But to tell the truth, I always knew.
I'd fall in love with an angel like you."
