Lyrics

Just an old bucket of bolts for sale there in the weeds
200 cash, push pull the drag, bought it when I turned 16
Yeah me and daddy out in that barn beneath that overhead light
He'd bust his ass at work all day and stay up with me all night

I could see that blue collar smile dragging on that Marlboro Red
And I remember every prayer and every cuss word that he said
All the junkyard parts that didn't fit
My daddy never quit
Cigarettes, Chevy trucks, and me

He bought me a brand new radio
Said crank that good rock and roll
It's the only thing that will make these dirt roads feel like streets of gold
Don't make the blue lights flash even though I know you're gonna
Give every pretty girl the ride till you find one like your mama

I could see that blue collar smile dragging on that Marlboro Red
And I remember every prayer and every cuss word that he said
All the junkyard parts that didn't fit
My daddy never quit
Cigarettes, Chevy trucks and me
He never quit on me

300 thousand miles seen a lot of county lines
And she could use a coat of paint, a lot of spit and shine
Madiphone? Popping in this field of green to the sound of a Seger song
Standing here like a rock and talking to this stone

I could see that blue collar smile dragging on that Marlboro Red
And I remember every prayer and every cuss word that he said
All the junkyard parts that didn't fit
My daddy never quit
Cigarettes, Chevy trucks, and me
He never quit on me
Yeah
