Lyrics

Half an hour past too late
Flyin' down the interstate
One hand on the wheel, and the other searching all night radio

Take a sip from my coffee cup
Reach over roll the window up
Step a little harder on the go button, push her on down the road

Takes me back to another time
I didn't have such a worried mind
And I could drive all day long without thinking 'bout a single thing

Just so long as you were near
A glance away in my rear view mirror
Well you weren't no centerfold but baby you sure could sing

And I never had nothin' made me feel so fine
As a two-tone ragtop, hugging the line in the Texas sun
You know the only way to get it done
Was in a tail-finned road rocket covered in chrome
On a two lane black topped ribbon of road
When you were short and sweet
Riding shotgun in your bare feet

Was a time that you made me swear
I'd always take you with me everywhere
But I broke my promise and your heart the night I drove away

I didn't turn around to see you wave goodbye
Because I didn't wanna see you cryin'
But I swear I'd do it different if I had it all to do today

And I never had nothin' made me feel so fine
As a two-tone ragtop, hugging the line in the Texas sun
You know the only way to get it done
Was in a tail-finned road rocket covered in chrome
On a two lane black topped ribbon of road
When you were short and sweet
Riding shotgun in your bare feet

That's been a long time ago
And while I can't say I miss you so
I could use a little bit of company it's getting kind of cold tonite

It ain't like I got a choice
But if I did I'd wanna hear your voice
I know if I could hear you signing, mama everything would be alright

Cause I never had nothin' made me feel so fine
As a two-tone ragtop, hugging the linein the Texas sun
You know the only way to get it done
Was in a tail-finned road rocket covered in chrome
On a two lane black topped ribbon of road
When you were short and sweet
Riding shotgun in your bare feet
Yeah baby you were short and sweet
Riding shotgun in your bare feet
