We laughed and joked in the cab of his truck
Just my brother and me
The night before he shipped out Overseas
A leather-neck, Jarhead Marine

He said “the Radiator leaks,
And the timing-belt is worn,
But the Heart and Soul of this old beat up truck,
Is The Dashboard.”

“It’s seen alot of tan legs,
Got a kick ass radio
Heard alot of singing along with some country songs, and rock and roll.
Got a.38 bullet hole, courtesy of Kate Tillman’s dad,
Alot of scotch tape marks from holding timeless photo graphs.”
He said “If I don’t come back,
You can have this Ford,
Just tape a picture of me, on the Dashboard.”

He said “The paint is peeling off,
It’s got dents in both the doors,
If something happens to me don’t hang a for-sale sign above the Dashboard.”

“It’s seen alot of tan legs,
Got a kick ass radio
Heard alot of singing along with some country songs, and rock and roll.
Got a.38 bullet hole, courtesy of Kate Tillman’s dad,
Alot of scotch tape marks from holding timeless photo graphs.”
He said “If I don’t come back,
You can have this Ford,
Just tape a picture of me, on the Dashboard.”

I Had the Engine overhauled,
A paint-job and brand new chrome
I Had her washed and waxed, sittin' in the drive the day that he came home

I said “Here’s the keys,
She’s all yours,
I Fixed everything,
