I once had ’69 Ford
We drove it to the end of the world
Doin’ gigs for just a cut of the door
Writin’ songs from the heart for my girl;

Chasing the smoke
Promises and hope
Waitin’ for the big one to come up;
Placing my bets
On caffeine and cigarettes
Oh, those miles that we covered in that truck
She’d say, “We just need a little luck” .. (with your)

Heart songs, heart songs
I wrote for ‘em for my girl
And I sang ‘em just for her
Heart songs

We’d dream I’d get on AM radio
50,000 watts across the world
But my songs never made it on the show
The only one who heard ‘em was my girl.

I’d try to make the scene
She’d be my go-between, (puttin’ my)
Home-made cassettes out there to sell
‘Cause she could see the spark
She’d nurse it through the dark, (in every)
Bar, every cut-rate motel
The days when I stumbled and fell;
