Can't Hardly Hold Her

Did she pester him to leave town?
No. A little.
When did they go?
When his friends started calling her Lines.
As in?
State lines. As in don't take a minor across them. When they started calling him Chuck.
As in?
Chuck Berry. A musician who took a girl across state lines.

Just some delicious dialogue from the novel I'm currently devouring: Smith Henderson's breathtaking debut Fourth Of July Creek.

Chuck Berry - Sweet Little Rock And Roller
