chris young – the dashboard testo

attendere prego...

“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 leatherneck, 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 to some country songs and rock & roll,
got a .38 bullet hole, courtesy of kate tillman’s dad,
a lot of scotch tape marks from holding timeless photographs
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,
sitting in the drive the day he came home
i said here’s your keys, she’s all yours
i fixed everything, but the dashboard
