chris young – the dashboard

por favor espere um momento...

“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
