Hitchhiker in a Haltertop

(Steve Key)
February 6, 2012
for my sweetheart Bonnie.
She laughs it off when I say she’s sexy
Like I’m the first guy to use that line
She says she doesn’t know why I would say that
Although she admits there was a time
When she could turn heads out on the highway
When her thumb said are you going my way

CH She was a hitchhiker in a haltertop
Watch how fast that traffic stops
Barefoot beauty, California cutie
How I wish I’d seen you back then!

She was married when we started dating
Sounds funny but her husband didn’t mind
Sometimes I shake my head and wonder
How he could let that angel fly
She headed down south on the highway
I couldn’t believe what was heading my way

CH She was a hitchhiker in a haltertop
Watch how fast that traffic stops
Barefoot beauty, California cutie
How I wish I’d seen you back then!

BR I got that picture in mind
Of you in your prime
With your hair hanging down so long
That girl’s still alive
In your laughing eyes
I’m gonna pick her up and take her along

CH She was a hitchhiker in a haltertop
Watch how fast that traffic stops
Barefoot beauty, California cutie
How I wish I’d seen you back then!
And I wish you’d put on that haltertop again.
