She was in the backyard, say it was a little past nine 
When her prince pulled up, a white pickup truck 
Her folks should of seen it comin' it was only just a matter of time 
Plenty old enough, and you can't stop love. 
 
She stuck a note on the screen door "Sorry but I got to go" 
That was all she wrote, her mama's heart was broke 
That was all she wrote, so the story goes 
 
(Chorus) Now her daddy's in the kitchen starin' out the window, scratchin' and a rackin' his brains 
How could 18 years just up'n and walk away? 
Our little pony-tail girl grown up to be a woman 
Now she's gone in the blink of an eye 
She left the suds in the bucket and the clothes hangin' out on the line 
 
Now don't you wonder what the preacher's gonna preach about sunday mornin' Nothing quite like this has happened here before 
Well he must have been a looker, a smooth talkin' son of a gun 
For such a grounded girl to just up and run 
Course you can't fence time, and you can't stop love 
 
(2nd Chorus) Now all the biddies in the beauty shop gossip goin' non stop sippin' on pink lemonade 
How could 18 years just up'n and walk away? 
Our little pony-tail girl grown up to be a woman 
Now she's gone in the blink of an eye 
She left the suds in the bucket and the clothes hangin' out on the line 
 
YEEEHOO! 
 
(3rd chorus) She's got her pretty little bare feet hangin' out the window And they're headin up to Vegas tonight 
How could 18 years just up'n walk away? 
Our little pony-tail girl grown up to be a woman 
Now she's gone in the blink of an eye 
She left the suds in the bucket and the clothes hangin' out on the line 
She left the suds in the bucket and the clothes hangin' out on the line 
 
She was in the backyard, say it was a little past nine 
When her prince pulled up, a white pick up truck 
Plenty old enough, and you can't stop love 
No you can't fence time, and you can't stop love---
