it was painted red the stripe was white

it was eighteen feet from

the bow to the stern light

secondhand 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 made for the water

ran her for years

til the transom got rotten

a piece of my childhood

that will never be forgotten

it was just on old plywood boat

with a 75 johnson with electric choke

a young boy two hands on the wheel

i can' replace the way it made me feel

and i would turn her sharp

and i would make her whine

he' say you can' 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 let me drive her when

we haul off a load

down a dirt strip where we

dump trash off of thigpen road

i sit up in the seat and

stretch my feet out to the pedals

smiling like a hero that

just received his medal

it was just an old hand-me-down ford

with a three-speed on the column

and a dent in the door

a young boy two hands on the wheel

i can replace the way it mode me feel

and i would press that clutch

and i would keep it right

and he say a little slower son

you doing just fine

just a dirt rood with trash on each side

but i was mario andretti

when daddy let me drive

i grown up now t daughters of my own

i let them drive my old jeep

across the pasture at our home

maybe one day they'

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 floorboard hot on my feet

a young girl two hands on the wheel

i can' replace the way

it made me feel

and he' say turn

it left and steer it right

straighten up girl

you' doing just fine

just a little valley

by the river where we' ride

but i was high on a mountain

when daddy let me drive

when daddy let me drive

oh he let me drive

it' just an old plywood boat

with a 75 johnson with electric choke
