He was 19, she 16 when they flew away
to live in Echo, Texas to start a church
heard God a callin’ their names.
Life was tough from beginning to end
but their love was a flame
no earthly doing could rearrange.
Story has it they moved to Tennessee
to listen to angels sing
for heaven on earth was that near
if you choose to hear.
No birds nor angels were harmed while writing this story
