78FORD

I got a brand new set of tyres
for my 78 Ford
got the keys in my hand
and I’m running for the door
I got a long drive
to see my baby tonight
I got money in the bank
I got a full tank
I’m listening to Hank
and I’m feeling alright
Alright gonna see my honey tonight
gonna make her feel alright
gonna keep the pressure on
till I see my home coming in sight

Had to come out west
just to get some work
there is nothing in the city
and it’s only getting worse
my baby cried when we said goodbye
and so did I
but that don’t matter
gonna see her tonight

And I got her wound up
and she’s runnin like never before
the miles and the hours
are spinnin under my wheels oh lord
sit tight darling I’m coming
I’ll see you way before dawn

The sun has gone down
got the pedal to the floor
this road is long and straight
you can hear my V8 roaring
nothings gonna slow me down tonight
gone see my darling
before the morning light

I work twelve hour shifts
for three long weeks
I don’t spend no money
just work, eat, sleep, repeat
I’m gonna treat my honey
to the time of her life
ya know I love her so much
one day gonna make her my wife



And I got her wound up
and she’s runnin like never before
my 78 Ford
the miles and the hours
are spinnin under my wheels oh lord
sit tight darling I’m coming
I’ll see you way before dawn

I met Marie when she was still at school
all my friends said man your such a fool
but I waited two years
for her to turn eighteen
and now my pretty baby is waiting for me

I just called her up on my telephone
said sit tight little darling
I’m on my way home
she said I’m ready I’m waitin I’m right here
she said I love you so much
I will know when your getting near

And I got her wound up
and she’s runnin like never before
the miles and the hours
are spinnin under my wheels oh lord
sit tight darling I’m covering ground
I’m coming around
I’ll see you way before dawn

I lost a bit of time
I got two ticket and all those road works
My eye’s are itchy, my skin is tired
and my back hurts
but I can see the glow of the city
in my mind I see my honey
ah she’s so pretty

I know my baby loves me
cause she told me so
I know that she’s waiting for me
there when I get home
I got money in the bank
I got enough in the tank
I’m still listenin to Hank
and the skies turning blue
woo hoo

I’m turning into my street
I can see my light on
and there in the window
I see my honey waving at me
