Song Description

A man dreams of traveling the world in a yellow trailer, with his horse. He has hopes and dreams but they are never realized. He wanted to go down to Mexico and live on the beach in his trailer with his pony. At the end of the song we find that never happened.

Story Behind the Song

A man dreams of traveling the world in a yellow trailer, with his horse. He has hopes and dreams but they are never realized.

Lyrics

Yellow Trailer
© 2013 Grant Maloy Smith


I wish I lived in a yellow trailer
There ain't no telling where I'd go
If I lived in a yellow trailer
I'd roll right down to Mexico

There'll be caution in the wind
And phone calls coming in
I'll drive until I can't remember when...

I wish I knew how to ride a pony
How to brush his coat and treat him right
'cause if I knew how to ride a pony
We'd ride along the beach at night

There'll be seagulls in the air
and whitecaps everywhere
We'll ride until the wind sings out a prayer

I spent my life in a yellow trailer
I never made it to Cancún
I got no wheels on my broken trailer
my pony passed away last June

You can dream about a girl
or things that never were
You can cry about the night
or reinvent your life
You can live inside a candy-colored world
like my yellow trailer

I used to live in a yellow trailer
