Drive-In Movies And Dashboard Lights by Nanci Griffith


(Nanci Griffith)

 

Sister had a crystal voice

She played a Silvertone from Montgomery Ward

Baez songs in Monroe hair

She sure could turn the boys' head to stare

Swim wear saunter tan and haunt them

That's all she learned in school

Books were for other girls

And the other girls were fools

In Texas back in sixty-nine

It was drive-in movies and dashboard lights

 

Father waltzed her down the aisle

'cause college didn't suit her style

The sad truth was that she could barely read

But if you told dear Father

He wouldn't believe you

The telephone rang it drove Mother insane

From the hearts left on the shelf

Sister's gone and she won't be home

'cause she didn't take care of herself

In Texas back in sixty-nine

It was drive-in movies and dashboard lights

Chorus

Where is she now?

The backseat Queen of fraternity

Where is she now?

She is heavy of thigh and light on integrity

Someone should've told her

When beauty's all you offer

Too soon the world's discover that your beauty's gone

(It's gone)

 

Mother can't you hear your daughter carying

Father wake up her youth is dying

Her kids are grown husband's gone away

It's shame 'cause she had such a lovely face

Can't you see she need more

Than"Oh what a pretty child"?

You never taught her truth from lie

All you told her was to smile

In Texas back in sixty-nine

It was drive-in movies and dashboard lights

 

Chorus

 

In Texas back in sixty-nine

It was drive-in movies and dashboard lights
