about

The new single from the forthcoming EP, due out Winter 2017.

lyrics

You turn sixteen
You got nineteen hundred dollars
But twenty two is their best offer
You get a loan from your father
And the car is yours

Keys in your pocket
World in your hand
Radio's busted, you don't give a damn
No, you're just out the door

289 mustang horses
Racing down a white line
Long stretch of lonesome
Highway blacktop
You're the king don't ever stop
This is where your life starts
In an American car

You got high beams
To pierce the night
A ragtop to touch the sky
A dashboard of actual miles
But come on who's to say

You got rusty chrome
With leather hide seats
Rolled down windows and no AC
But you wouldn't want it any other way

289 mustang horses
Racing down a white line
Long stretch of lonesome
Highway blacktop
Faster now, don't ever stop
This is where your life starts
In an American car

You got four Goodyears with plenty of tread
God bless Hank, Ford and his Cherry Bomb Red
My son of a Detroit-made machine
Who cares if you're a sinner when your engine runs clean
