Lyrics

COOL JUNK

She's got a white Impala with red leather seats
Think it's a '68, and it's awfully sweet
There's an antenna ball from Union 76
And her 8 track plays a most eclectic mix
She's got clear floor mats, and a chauffer's cap
And when I first came to her door
I saw a Juke Box through the window, Archie comics on the floor

She's got cool junk from another day
Guess it's what got my attention but it's not what makes me stay
She's got an old trunk where she keeps her things
I love her not for the past, but for what tomorrow brings

She's got some Pez Dispensers, an Erector Set
A Leather bag of marbles, candy cigarettes
Packs of baseball cards, some still with the gum
And artillery, but it's just for fun
A box of autographs, one from the Man In Black
Her 45's pristine
Except the ones she plays alot like Elvis Presley, The Supremes

Yeah she's got cool junk from another day
Guess it's what got my attention but it's not what makes me stay
She's got an old trunk where she keeps her things
But, I love her not for the past, this love's for what tomorrow brings

She's gotta sunshine smile and a heart of gold
And she makes me laugh like no one else I know
She is good to our mothers and her son's grown up right
She's the best of every woman, the only one to share my life


Plus, she's got cool junk from another day
Guess it's what got my attention but it's not what makes me stay
She's got an old trunk where she keeps her things
I love her not for the past, this love's for what tomorrow brings










Well done ...love your vocal ...you have a sweet sound when your holding on to a note at the end of a word in spots... so pleasant to my ear, you made me remember so many things from my own past. creative lyrics, I think you did really well...

I love this.....makes me homesick for the old days!! I remember the Union 76 antenna balls....they were all over the place in the late 60's. This song feels good, sounds great, and really pays off emotionally! Vocal is killer, hook is very hooky!! Love this!!

Pleasant tune

Very unique and original words. I don't think I've ever heard a song like this. I enjoyed the melody as well. Great job. Very nice voice.

This is a very good song! A nice, descriptive tune.

Really well-thought out recording. Pretty strong on all levels.

The lyrics told a story, which is what Country music is all about. The instrumentation and vocals were worked for this song. It's the type of song that keeps the listener engaged, waiting too see where the song goes next. It had a different feel too it, more like "Old Country," with a slight rock feel. It was put together well.
