It was the Senior High School yearbook The class of '63 I'll never forget the way you gave Your book and pen to me It was all talked out and settled You new I'd understand A girl with dreams as big as yours Just had to make some plans So I turned to your best picture Most Likely To Succeed The only one in the whole damn book That didn't show you with me And it said that you liked inner strenth So I tried to be true to form And I hid my teenage broken heart Instead I signed this poem I hope you always drive a Cadillac I hope you always drink champagne I hope you always shine with the sunshine I hope you never have to face the rain Unless the clouds are lined with silver May every heart you meet be gold And may you find the world as kind as you've been told At the ten year class reunion They read your personal note And displayed your cover photograph In your full length sable coat But the words underneath the picture Were what mattered most to me There was something in between the lines That no one else could see... It said- I always drive a Cadillac I always drink champagne And if you make time while the sun shines You never have to face the rain I travel fast because I go alone Everybody gets bought and sold And I wondered if you'd really become that cold That was the last word anyone heard from you Until I got your card today A single line and signature That said "I'm coming home to stay" I wonder what life has done to you I wonder why you thought of me But if you stop by to say hello I wonder what you'll think if you see An old ragged high school yearbook That falls open to just one page With a picture of a young girl's face Full of beauty, dreams and rage But the words underneath the picture Is the verse that's still so true It's the one I swore no one would read Unless I showed it to you I hope you always drive a Cadillac I hope you always drink champagne And you'll carry my heart wherever you go Even if I never see you again But if you bring it back home to me Maybe then it'll mean you know That the strongest love's the love that let's you go... I hope you always drive a Cadillac...
