Lyrics Quiz

iPod on shuffle. I tried to pick obscure lines but songs that weren't too obscure. I don't know when I'll post answers or check answers, so please be patient.

Note: Listed after the lyric are the people who got it correct, however I'm not going to approve comments right away. Updated the ones no one got with more lines.

  2. Love was out to get me, that's the way it seemed. (WN)
  3. It was a long train trestle, but we had no fear. Man, I don't know, where the time goes, but it sure goes fast.

  10. I ended up by the old school yard and this redhead pulls up in a blue sports car and said "I bet you don't remember, I guess it's been forever." It took a second to put it all together and I said...

  12. Mars ain't the kind of place to raise your kids. (WN, foxdeath)
  13. So I'm a sista, buy things with cash. It really doesn't mean that all my credit's bad. So why dispute me and waste my time because you think the price is high for me?
  14. So, if you want to love me, then darling don't refrain. (Jaime)

  22. Sitting here resting my bones, and this loneliness won't leave me alone. 2000 miles I roamed... (Nick)
  23. And as she walked away, I looked at my wife, and then and there I thanked the good lord for the gifts in my life. (WN got the song title, not the artist)
  24. But, mama never told me 'bout nothing like Y-O-U. (Sandra)
  25. And they wonder why the maples can't be happy in their shade? (Dave)
  26. Here comes the rain again, falling from the stars. Drenched in my pain again, becoming who we are. (Dave)
  27. Yes indeed, I saw you standing there. Your head was down, your eyes were red.
  28. She's strumming on my six-string, it's across her pretty knees. Tapping out a rhythm and singing to me the sweetest song...
  29. Enough about me, let's talk about you for a minute. (Jaime got the artist but not the song)
  30. And I've been keeping all the letters that I wrote to you, each one a line or two, I'm fine baby, how are you? Well, I would send them but I know that it's just not enough. My words were cold and flat, and you deserve more than that.
  31. He started yelling at me like I did something wrong, he flipped me the bird, and then he was gone. (foxdeath knows the song but not the artist)
  32. Under your number, I wrote "Call for a good time." (Sandra, Dave)
