    Summary

    An AU set in the late 1950s. Jack is a Navy pilot, Daniel is a university professor. They meet in a jazz bar in Memphis, Tennessee. The story is an unabashed romance that includes some hurt/comfort but is mostly first-time love against a backdrop of Cold War politics. The title is indeed that song recorded by Pam Tillis, but it is definitely not songfic, and the mood of the piece is jazz and not country and western. I'm just sayin'.
