She was pretty, 'bout 17
When she moved in just down my street
Still don't know what she saw in me

I guess she liked the way I made her laugh
She wanted more than what friends had
She kissed me once and we never looked back

First time was down by the river
Our sweat made both us shiver
Don't stop, darling, they're just raindrops
The moonlight was all around
Our breath, the only sound
Baby, darling, she said, take me
And drive me crazy yeah

In the woods, in my grandpa's barn
In the back seat of my car
She said, it doesn't matter where we are

She made me thirst for a woman's love
I kept drinking, couldn't get enough
Yeah, there was magic in her velvet touch

First time was down by the river
Our sweat made both us shiver
Don't stop, darling they're just raindrops
The moonlight was all around
Our breath, the only sound
Baby, darling, she said, take me
And drive me crazy yeah

The leaves changed and the sky turned grey
Her daddy's job took her away
I can still see the tears rolling down her face
Oh, yeah

First time was down by the river
Our sweat made both us shiver
Don't stop, darling they're just raindrops
The moonlight was all around
Our breath, the only sound
Baby, darling, she said, take me
And drive me crazy yeah
Baby, drive me crazy

Song facts

"I wrote this with Keifer Thompson from Thompson Square. We happened to be talking about first times that particular day. We were talking about high school days and the places that you went and the time that you shared. Most everybody from high school can think of one person that they shared their high school days with. That is usually when your first times happened.

That led to us realizing that so many things were your first times with that person. In high school, a girl I was seeing didn't have the most desired home life. There was some anger about that with her, having to grow up fast and acting older than she was. Sometimes I would butt heads with my family or whatever. When I look back on it, I realize that they were trying to communicate with me. But at the time, my relationship with her provided us both with a safe harbor from our worlds, a getaway car from everyday life.

This song is about two teens finding refuge in each other. We were able to block out the outside world. When we got together, that pent-up frustration would come out in a physical way. We understood each other because we both had those feelings pent up. It is how we connected on that level and why the spark was there between the two of us. It was quick and fleeting, fast and furious, while you were in it. But that is who I shared some first times with and then it was gone." - Kip Moore
