Back when gas was thirty cents a gallon,
America was young and strong and brave.
Lord knows that I didn't have much money,
And my old car had seen some better days.
You were young and fresh as brand new roses,
I was so in love and strong and brave.

Back when gas was thirty cents a gallon,
And love was only sixty cents away.
I don't think I'd know you if I'd see you,
I practice my forgettin' till it works.
Back when gas was thirty cents a gallon,
I didn't know the meaning of hurt.
I don't think I'd know you if I'd see you,
I practice my forgettin' till it works.
Back when gas was thirty cents a gallon,
I didn't know the meaning of hurt.
Back when gas was thirty cents a gallon,
And love was only sixty cents away.
Back when gas was thirty cents a gallon,
And sweet magnolias line those country roads.
We burned a tank of love most every weekend,
And on work days I helped 'em fix the roads.
Our friends were many and our dreams were certain,
Whoever thought we'd go our seperate ways.
Back when gas was thirty cents a gallon,
And love was only sixty cents away.
