“Bobbie Ann Mason” is a song written by Mark D. Sanders, and recorded by American country music artist Rick Trevino. It was released in May 1995 as the second single from the album Looking for the Light. The song reached number 6 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart and at number 6 on the Canadian RPM Country Tracks chart.

The song is an uptempo, in which the narrator discusses his high school crush, Bobbie Ann Mason. Songwriter Mark Sanders has written that he was inspired to choose the name “Bobbie Ann Mason” for the character in the song because he loved the books In Country and Shiloh and Other Stories by the novelist Bobbie Ann Mason. Sanders wrote that he later received a phone call from Mason, and commented, “It turned out that she was a little put off that I used her name in the song, but I think she got over that.”

Rick Treviño – Bobbie Ann Mason Lyrics

It wasn’t the books that I didn’t read, it wasn’t the teachers
Who tried to teach me
It wasn’t that varsity baseball coach,
Kept on telling them locker room jokes

[Chorus]
It was Bobbie Ann Mason, back in high school she was way too cute
She was way too cool
How was I gonna get an education
Sittin’ right in back of Bobbie Ann Mason

Well Bobbie knew her history, Bobbie knew her French
Bobbie knew how to keep the boys in suspense
She teased with a touch, she teased with a kiss
I was three long years being teased by pretty miss

[Chorus]
Well Bobbie graduated first in the class, me I graduated
Closer to last
Bobbie went to college, she got a degree
I got a guitar so I could sing about me and

[Chorus]

Well the years have taught me, the basics of math
Divorce divides, time subtracts
Takes away your hair, takes away your jump shot
But it ain’t gonna take all the memories I’ve got of

[Chorus]
