Is this western or folk?

lyrics

When I was nine and you were ten we were the best of friends.
We wished on the moon and prayed to the sun that summers would never end.
We had long days and treehouse nights, bundled up against the cold.
As we lay, we would talk about getting married one day when we grew old.

But then you up and moved away;
said your daddy had to take a job in a different state.
I never saw your face again,
but even after all this time, I think I'm still in love with my best friend.

I thought my life was perfect way back when
we'd spend the night out on your family's farm
with the stars for blankets, the meadow for a bed,
and your pillow was my arm.

But then you up and moved away;
said your daddy had to take a job in a different state.
I never saw your face again,
but even after all this time, I think I'm still in love with my best friend.

As the years wore on, I never could get the little blonde girl out of my head.
My memories are all I have left;
you could be married or you could be dead.
And so I wrote this silly song and I sent it out into the world.
If you're out there, now you know where I stand, so come and find me baby girl.
