Jerry Jeff Walker


As a teenage girl in Texas, raised on dust and weeds and cactus 

She first saw pictures of the river Seine 

From her window late at night, she'd pretend the stars were lights 

Of the cafes in the St. Germain des Pres 


Chorus 1: 

And she longed to see the world, and converse with other girls 

As they laughed and talked and walked along the boulevard 

To float to Paris and the lights in a taxi late at night 

Seems like a leap of faith to make from this old farm 

But she made herself a promise that someday she'd celebrate 

Her birthday in the St. Germain des Pres 


After college she got married, she worked in theatre and had some babies

Her life took on directions of its own

She became a working mother, she lived her life for others

For her husband, for the children and her home


Then one day her grown daughter said, she was off to Europe and

Have you ever thought about it Mom?

She said of course I used to honey, a lot when I was your age

But I hadn't thought about it much until right now

She remembered the promise, that someday she's celebrate

Her birthday in the St. Germain des Pres


She sees how quickly life can pass by, how easily a dream dies

You can't just live your life for someone else

So she boards the plane for Paris, she thinks she'll need a new dress

As she keeps that birthday promise to herself


Oh she thought she'd do it sooner, seems so important to her

But life moves on when you're off making plans

But every now and then it happens, a chance appears for you to grab it

That's why this time she just couldn't let it pass

Cause she made herself a promise that someday she'd celebrate

Her birthday in the St. Germain des Pres


And later take a walk beside the Seine
