I Got A Car Lyrics


She was leaning on a rail in a cotton dress
Summer tanned pretty, little perfect mess
With a story that could only be anybody's guess
And I was thinking that I probably didn't stand a chance
But I rolled up my sleeves, walked up and I said
Hey, I don't know you but I'd kinda like a shot
She said, I saw you comin' over, I already thought it over
And OK, so now what

And I said, well I Got A Car, she said, there's something
At least it's a start, I said, it's better than nothing
I ain't in no hurry but I'm ready when you are
And she said, where do you think all this is going
I said, there ain't no way of knowing
I guess I hadn't thought it through that far
But I got a car

So, we let the wheels turn and the windows down
We let ourselves go all the way through town
She never said stop and I never asked her why
We drove into the night, when outta nowhere
She said, I'd give anything to never go back there
And I kinda wish this day would never end
She said, I could use a change but I don't even know where

And I said, well I got a car, she said, there's something
At least it's a start, I said, it's better than nothing
I ain't in no hurry but I'm ready when you are
And she said, where do you think all this is going
I said, there ain't no way of knowing
I really hadn't thought it through that far
And I can't promise you the moon and stars
But I got a car

We got lost in the miles, lost track of the days
'Til we finally found a stopping place
When the doctor's said, you know what's on the way?
And we found ourselves in a little white house
One Sunday morning, rain pouring down
She said, I think it's time but all the lines are out

And her eyes teared up and she said, what are we gonna do now?
And I said, well I got a car, she said, there's something
You think it'll start, I said, it's already running
Got your things in the back and I'm ready when you are
She said, are you sure it'll get us where we're goin'?
I said, if there's one thing I know girl, it's gotten us this far
And I don't mean to hurry but I'm ready when you are

I Got A Car
  • This circle-of-life cut revolving around a car was penned by Tony Douglas and Keith Gattis. Strait explained that he was pitched the song by his son, Bubba. "The way I found it was, my son, one of his rodeo buddies… had given Bubba a CD," he said. "So, I took it home and I laid it on the coffee table, and it sat there for two or three weeks."

    "He asked me about it one day," Strait continued, "and I said, 'Naw, I haven't heard it yet, but I will when I get back home.' So, I got it and stuck it in the player and started listening to it. This song was on there, along with a couple of others. 'Sittin' on the Fence' was on there also, I believe. I said, 'Hey man! This guy is a good writer. I want to hear more of his stuff.' Bubba was emailing back and forth with him. He kept sending me more and more stuff. That's how I got 'Blue Melodies,' 'I Got a Car' and 'Sittin' on the Fence.'"
