It was 1969

I was green and on the vine
I wanted to be a man but I felt like a boy
I left the house I grew up in
Passed by the houses of my kin

The day I drove away in my Chevrolet

The day I drove away in my Chevrolet
Seeking to find the man I would become
down that long-- and winding way
Leaving the trappings of my childhood-- all along the way
The day I drove away in my Chevrolet

Looking back on that day
As the years have passed away
Knowing the man that I am now and The road I drove that day
With the twists and turns and detours-- along that old highway
I know that Jesus had his hand on me, and that old Chevrolet
