    "Band Camp" Lyrics

    Vic Chesnutt

    Well the first time I ever laid eyes on you
    Was my first year at marching band camp
    You never played the part as it was written
    You would always vamp

    You was always cracking me up
    Messing with the band director
    Mocking the tuba parts
    In your upper register

    If I knew then what I know now

    You shouldn't've even been talking to me
    Just a lowly freshman
    And you the undisputed queen of the senior class
    Without question

    Yet at the band hangout ruth's restaurant
    We sat together in a corner booth
    We got our burgers for free
    Because you was kin to ruth

    If I knew then what I know now

    You always had a little something
    Hidden in your instrument case
    We would be practically making out
    On the bus home from the way games

    Once you soaked a tampon in some serious vodka

    Wore it to school
    Second period science lab
    You fell right off your stool

    If I knew then what I know now

    I didn't go to your graduation
    I just couldn't find the strength
    And I had to throw my yearbook in the dumpster
    Because it was haunting me

    The very next time I ever laid eyes on you
    It was practically christmas
    You already looked like a whole different person
    Just like much older sister

    If I knew then what I know now

    I still never, never, never would've
    Seen that coming
