Starless Summer Night

We met on the hills at sunset
Over in east Tennessee
He was working a farm in the summer
I was visiting family

We shared stories from our life
When we met every evening
Under that old oak tree
It felt like a new beginning

The rain was starting when he looked at me
His eyes shining bright
He reached over and took my hand
On a starless summer night

Oh a starless summer night
Was where I found my first love
Fingers running through wet hair
While clouds are rumbling above
The rain falling down hard
Dripping through the wet leaves
Upon us, under that
Old oak tree

Summer was coming to an end
I couldn’t stand the thought
We met one day
Said he was thinking a lot

I looked into his eyes
And feared what was coming ahead
I kept thinking of the worse
And filling up with dread

He took my hands
And with a lightning strike
He broke my heart
In a starless summer night

Oh a starless summer night
I stopped believing in love
He kissed me one last time
With the storm raging above
The rain falling down hard
Over where he left me
Oh they hid the tears
Under that
Old oak tree
