Lyrics


In My Daddy’s Car


Copyright Ric Seaberg 2006


 


 


I didn’t know how to drive but i was learnin’, down by Franklin High


My father closed his eyes when I was turnin’, he was terrified


But we would turn the AM on, and sing the Duke of Earl


I was only seventeen, but I felt like the King of the World


 


In my Daddy’s car, In my Daddy’s car


In my Daddy’s car, In my Daddy’s car


 


I drove over to Sarah’s house, every chance I got


She was only a sophomore, but she was hot


Sometimes I’d sneak out at night, and stay out til the dawn


But when he left for work he never said


“Why’s the engine warm?”


 


Chorus


Solo,


Bridge


 


Weekends were for changin’ oil, spark plugs and tires


We’d put on the football game, and cuss at the umpires


 


My father took a drive last year to the country in the sky


And left me this ol’ Pontiac, from 1965


Now as my kids are askin’, if they can learn to drive


Well The Duke of Earl is lookin’ down


While we harmonize.....
