      Alan Jackson - Drive (for daddy Eugene) Música y Letra

      It was painted red
      The stripe was white
      It was 18 feet from bow to stern light
      It was 2nd hand, from a dealer in atlanta
      I rode up with daddy when he went there to get her
      We put on a shine, put on a motor
      Built out of love, it made for water
      We ran her for years, til' the transister got rotten
      A piece of my child hood will never be forgotten
      
      It was just an old plywood boat
      A 75 johnson, an electric choke
      A young boy two hands on the wheel
      I can't replace the way it made me feel
      I would turn her sharp, I would make it wide
      He said you can't be the way a 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 short bed ford
      My uncle bought new in 64
      Daddy got it right cause the engine was smoking
      A couple of burnt valves and he got it going
      He'd let me drive her when we haul off a load
      Off a dirt strip where we'd dump trash
      Off of thickpin road
      I'd sit up in the seat and stretch my feet to the pedals
      Smiling like a hero
      Who just received his medal
      
      It was just an old hand me down ford
      With 3 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
      I would press that clutch, and I would keep it right
      He would say just a little slower son
      Your doing just fine:
      Just a little dirt road with trash on each side
      But I was mario andretti
      When daddy let me drive
      
      I'm grown up now
      3 Daughters of my own
      I let them drive my old jeep
      Across the pastior 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
      Turn it left, and steer it right
      Straighten up girl, your 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
      
      She's just old plywood boat
      With a 75 johnson
      And electric choke
