lyrics

I was old enough to know better

Hey that never stopped me before

I was already tryin to forget her

Before she walked in through the door



I drank up a little assurance

Stepped right up smooth on her right

Let myself go with the currents

Leaned in to give her a light



She smoked American Spirits

She had American style

She said "You'll never get near it

But sit and talk for a while."



Whenever I see that logo again

It takes me back like a madeleine

Drift right back, turn on a dime

Back to the scene of the crime



Tip glows red, ashes and beer

Barman says "You can't smoke here"

She says "I'm smokin all the time"

Says she's smokin all the time



Cause she has American Spirit

She has American style

She says "You'll never get near it

But sit and talk for a while."



She had American Spirit

She had American style

She said "You'll never get near it

But sit and talk for a while."



I don't know the last time I seen her

Maybe things worked out all right

I got off with a misdemeanor

Still was a hell of a night

Still was a hell of a night



She smoked American Spirits

She had American style

She said "You'll never get near it

But sit and talk for a while."



She has American Spirit

She has American style

She says "You'll never get near it

But sit and talk for a while.

Sit and talk for a while."

With me
