Song Description

a "true story "of a father making sure his young daughter was sure about her commitment to mariage, in his own country way.

Story Behind the Song

after daddy ask for mammas hand in marrage, grandpaw told mamma, he would give her the automobile of her choice if she would not marry was grandpaws way of checking the maturity of momma's young heart and love .......daddy has always wanted to restore an old automobile since I was a small child... so a few years after he retires he buys a '51 chevy , works endless long hours day in and day out .. I stopped by to see momma one day and she was upset at daddy about " to much time with the car and not enough with her" . I reminded her of his life long dream to finish a car , 'cause he did'nt have the money or time in his younger days. and now that he has the time and money, for her to help him realize and complete the dream,,,,to take him some lunch, sit and talk about whats left to do to help keep his priorities in order to speed up the completion off the automobile. also to get her out of the house and involved with the project . I am writtting this on july 8, their 50th anneversary is july 25. this song is one of the gifts to my parents . and oh! the '51... it won't be finished but the interior is complete and the airconditioner works yea.. they'll drive it to the party........


it was such a special day
he was runnin a little bit late
in a fifty one chevrolet
on their first date
her daddy saw all the in -love signs
he used his own method of the test of time
he'd give an automible of any kind
if she would change her mind

Iove him more than an automobile
those things break down
and leave you standing still
he'll carry me through
i know he will
I love him more than an automobile

years of raisin kids and payin bills
through lifes lows and growin over the hill
and her fixin all his favorite meals
she love him still
he retired back in the spring
'bout caught up on his honey-do things
he bought her a knew wedding ring
and in her heart she sings
