It was dark on the night that we made love on the grave of Kermit Vale
The full moon lay on clouds of coal like a prisoner's waiting jail
We ran into the graveyard on a wager and a dare
We both we young and crazy then and very hard to scare
That's the night that we made love on the grave of Kermit Vale

We stepped on every ancient rock and writings carved in stone
We laughed so hard I slipped and fell on a grave that sat alone
I wiped away the dirt that must have covered up the name
It looked to be an older one destroyed by years of rain
But I could see it plain the grave of Kermit Vale

I held my girl with all my might and didn't speak a word
We felt so weak and helpless that our cries were never heard
We laid our naked bodies down upon the jagged stone
She said from this day forward we would never be alone
That's the night that we made love on the grave of Kermit Vale

I looked my loved one in the eyes free from any shame
The passion that we felt that night would never be the same
We were so desperately in love for love had just begun
And so afraid that someday we would lose the other one
That's the night that we made love on the grave of Kermit Vale

And as we rose to leave I read again what we had seen
That Mr. Vale was not a man but a boy of seventeen
And as our full moon disappeared we walked home all the way
And thought about the teenage boy who lay there in the grave
That's the night that we made love on the grave of Kermit Vale
