Drive Lyrics

It's painted red - the stripe was white - it was eighteen feet
From the bow to stern light
Secondhand - from a dealer in Atlanta - I rode up with daddy
When he went there to get her
Put on a shine - put on a motor - built out of love - made for the water
Ran her for years 'til the transom got rotten
A piece of my childhood will never be forgotten it was

Just an old plywood boat - A '75 Johnson - with electric choke
A young boy - two hands on the wheel - I can't replace the way it
Made me feel and I would
Turn her sharp and I would - make it whine he'd say
You can't beat the way an old wood boat rides
Just a little lake - across the Alabama line - but I was king of the ocean
When daddy let me - Drive

Just an old half-ton shortbed Ford - my uncle bought new - in '64
Daddy got it right - 'cause the engine was smoking
A couple of burnt valves and he - had it going
He'd let me drive her - when we haul off a load
Down a dirt strip where we'd dump trash off of Thigpen Road
I'd sit up in the seat and stretch my feet out to the pedels
Smiling like a hero - that just received his medal it was

Just an old hand-me-down Ford - with three-speed on the column
And a dent in the door
A young boy - two hands on the wheel - I can't replace the way it
Made me feel and I would
Press that clutch and I would - keep it right He'd say
"A little slower son; you're doing just fine"
Just a dirt road - with trash on each side but I was Mario Andretti
When daddy let me Drive

I'm grown up now three daughters of my own
I let them drive my old jeep across the pasture at our home
Maybe one day - they'll reach back in their file
And pull out that old memory - and think of me and smile and say

It was just an old worn out jeep - rusty old floor boards - hot on my feet
A young girl - two hands on the wheel - I can't replace the way it
Made me feel and he'd say
Turn it left and - steer it right - straighten up girl now, you're doing just fine
Just a little valley - by the river where we'd ride but I was high on a mountain
When daddy let me Drive --------Daddy let me drive
Oh he let me - drive

It's just an old - plywood boat - with a '75 Johnson - with electric choke
