lyrics

Listen to the radio coming in
It's only 200 miles to Michigan
But Detroit sounds like static
and this transistor's had it
So the muscle cars and the NPR are just going to have to wait

You've got a pretty nice voice, my dear
and a southern twang you've adopted here
And since the radio's all but broken,
There's nothing left unspoken
We've got a quarter tank and a little bank, so let's go out tonight

All the legion halls in these small towns are falling over
All the heavy hearts won't hurt real bad for very long
You're still pretty and I've still got the chance to win you over
Obadiah, we can make it still

Two years later and we're having doubts
These songs aren't enough to light these sparks
And the radio's full of music,
but the record we can't choose it
So the howlin' wind and the motor's din will do us for a while

All the legion halls in these small towns are falling over
All the heavy hearts won't hurt real bad for very long
You're still pretty and I've still got the chance to win you over
Obadiah, we can make it still

You can leave me if you'd like
You say I'm pushing you away without a fight
Now that we are two years older
We're just a pair of frozen shoulders
I'll keep the motor on
I'll park it on the lawn
Oh, shine a light out there
Don't think that I don't care
You can follow me through familiar trees to where it all got started
