I'm lookin' for the lyrics to the Johnny Cash song, 'Straight A's In Love' (duh, I can tell that from the thread subject!) The only version I have is the one by Eddie Angel on the 'Dressed in Black' tribute. Can any of you fine folk out there help a new guy?
If you can, I'll help you tune your motocross bike!
Thanks

There ya go. What's a motocross bike?

STRAIGHT A'S IN LOVE
Words and music by Johnny Cash
As recorded by Johnny Cash as a single (Sun Records 334), 1956.

Well, a-readin' and a-writin' and arithmetic
Never did get through to me.
It ain't because I'm square or thick,
'Cause I learned my A-B-C;
But when I graduated from the grammar school
And I moved one grade above,
I began to be a snook at books,
But I made straight A's in love.

Now, the teacher would say:
"Learn your algebray,"
But I'd bring home C's and D's.
How could I make an A
When there's a swingin' maid
On the left and on the right
And in the back and the front of me?

Oh, my grades are low
On my card, I know,
But they ought to give me one above.
If they'd give me a mark
For learnin' in the dark,
I'd have straight A's in love.

Now, in my senior year,
With graduation near,
I did my homework ev'ry night;
And when my mama said
I ought to go to bed,
I'd turn out all the lights.

But my sweetie pie
Was waitin' right outside.
She'd be a-cooin' like a dove.
Though I did my best,
I failed semester test,
But I made straight A's in love.

Now, the teacher would say:
"Learn your algebray,"
But I'd bring home C's and D's.
How could I make an A
When there's a swingin' maid
On the left and on the right
And in the back and the front of me?

Oh, my grades are low
On my card, I know,
But they ought to give me one above.
If they'd give me a mark
For learnin' in the dark,
I'd have straight A's in love.
