lirik lagu young chris – the dashboard

we laughed and joked in the cab of his truck
just my brother and me
the night before he shipped out overseas
a leather-neck, jarhead marine

he said “the radiator leaks,
and the timing-belt is worn,
but the heart and soul of this old beat up truck,
is the dashboard.”

“it’s seen a lot of tan legs,
got a kick -ss radio
heard a lot of singing along with some country songs, and rock and roll.
got a.38 bullet hole, courtesy of kate tillman’s dad,
a lot of scotch tape marks from holding timeless photo graphs.”
he said “if i don’t come back,
you can have this ford,
just tape a picture of me, on the dashboard.”

he said “the paint is peeling off,
it’s got dents in both the doors,
if something happens to me don’t hang a for-sale sign above the dashboard.”

i had the engine overhauled,
a paint-job and brand new chrome
i had her washed and waxed, sittin’ in the drive the day that he came home

i said “here’s the keys,
she’s all yours,
i fixed everything,
but the dashboard”
