Lyrics

Got the Car Running

Written By: Marty Axelrod & Nicole Gordon

Got an old, I'm talking old Ford pick-up
Every day off I'm working on her
Spend all my tips at the Eastside junk yard
Finally found that carburetor

Gott get this damn fuel pump working
Before I go inside and get to bed
He's calling me in, and he means now
If I ever have to leave him again

I got the car running
Rebuilt the transmission
Four good tires, a spare below
Slam the hood, ready to roll
Hope I never have to go
But I got the car running.

On our first date, he brought flowers
Not just that one time either
He'd walk me home when I worked late hours
Said he'd never been with anyone sweeter

Life has taken a toll on him
Disappointments and ex-best friends
I wish he'd let me make him feel better
If he ever takes it out on me again

I got the car running...
repeat chorus

Set List

We usually play the entire 10-song set straight through in order, because they tell a story, but we also tailor the set as needed. We're currently adding new songs that aren't on the CD.
