[Verse 1]
C
  Cigarettes were a quarter then, 
C
  bobby socks and jeans were in, 
C                                  Dm7 G
Elvis sang the songs that we loved so, 
         Dm7            G
and the most important thing to us
Dm7                  G             Dm7
 was keeping gas in my old truck, 
Dm7                   G               C
   so I could take us to the drive-in show.
 
 
[Verse 2]
C
  Then graduation finally came, 
C
  Uncle Sam called me away, 
     C                               Dm7   G
you married someone else while I was gone, 
          Dm7              G
but I've kept your letter all these years
Dm7                     G
  and I can't help but shed a tear, 
       Dm7                 G              C
when I read the words you wrote me years ago.
 
[Chorus]
          Bb     F                C
Baby I'm yours,    I'll love you always, 
          Bb             F                C
I'm gonna stand by you until the end of time,
         Bb                     F                   C
remember all of the good things   that we shared together
              Bb     F                  C
signed, love Betty,    nineteen fifty nine.

[Verse 2]
C
  I never will forget the day, 
     C
when you and I went all the way,
   C
I was the first for you,
         Dm7    G
and you for me,
           Dm                  G
I've still got the truck that we loved in
    Dm7                 G
it takes me back there now and then, 
Dm7            G              C
back to fifty nine in my memory.
 
[Chorus]
          Bb     F                C
Baby I'm yours,    I'll love you always, 
          Bb             F                C
I'm gonna stand by you until the end of time,
         Bb                     F                   C
remember all of the good things   that we shared together
              Bb     F                  C
signed, love Betty,    nineteen fifty nine.
