Lyrics

billy was a small town loner
who never did dream
of ever leaving southern arizona
or ever hearing wedding bells ring
never had a lot of luck with the ladies
but he sure had a lot of good working skills
never cared bout climbing any ladders
he knew the way
in a small cafe found the will
he met miss bonnie
and a little bit of her was a little to much
a few movies and a few months later
the feeling got strong enough
Didn't know to call it
so it must of have been love
drove him up town for a diamond
thats when he started going
over the line
working over time
to give her things
just to hear say " she don't deserve him"
be he loves her and he just kept going

over board, over the limit, to afford
to give her her things he knew she wanted
cause without her where would he be
see, it's not for him
she is his only need

ring on her finger and one on the ladder
new promotion every now and then
bonnie worked until she couldn't tie her apron
stayed at home and had the first of two children
my time did fly, babies grew up and moved away
left them sitting on the front porch rocking
and billy watching bonnies hair turn grey
every once in a while you would see him get up
and he'd head down town
cause he heard about something she wanted
and it just had to be found
didn't matter how simple or how much
it was love, boy ain't that love just something
when it's strong enough to keep a man going

over the line
working over time
to giver her things
just to hear her say" she don't deseve him"
but he loved her and he just kept going
over board
over the limit to afford
to give her things he knew she wanted
cause without her where would he be
see it's not for him
she is his only need

over the line
working over time
she is his only need

overboard, over the limit
just for her
she is his only need.
