Billy was a small town loner
Who never did dream
Of ever leaving southern Arizona
Or ever hearing wedding bells ring
He never had a lot of luck with the ladies
But he sure had a lot of good working skills
Never cared about climbing any ladder
He knew the way in a small cafe, found the will

He met Miss Bonnie
And a little bit of her was a little too much
A few movies and a few months latter
The feeling got strong enough
They didn抰 own a car
So it must have been love
That drove him uptown for a diamond
That抯 when he started goin?


Over the line
Working overtime
To give her things just to hear her say she don抰 deserve them
But he loves her and he just kept going overboard
Over the limit to afford to give her things he knew she wanted
慍ause without her where would he be?
See, it抯 not for him
She is his only need

Ring on her finger and one on the ladder
A new promotion every now and then
Bonnie worked until she couldn抰 tie her apron
Then stayed at home and had the first of two children
And my, how the time did fly
The babies grew up and moved away
Left 'em sitting on the front porch rocking
And Billy watching Bonnie抯 hair turn gray

And ev抮y once in a while you could see him get up
And he抎 head downtown
慍ause he heard about something she wanted
And it just had to be found
Didn抰 matter how simple or how much
It was love
And, boy, ain抰 that love just something
When it抯 strong enough to keep a man goin?P> (Repeat Chorus)

Over the line
Working overtime
She is his only need
His only need
Over the limit
Just for her
She is his only need
His only need
