Looking At The World Through a Windshield

Warner Mack


Well when I was just a little bitty kid
I remember one time my mama said
Daddy sends you all his love from Frisco Bay
And I didn't understand till I was grown
Why my daddy didn't spend a little time at home
Instead of runnin' around the country side that a way

Now I'm lookin' at the world through a windshield
And I see everything in a little bit different light
Oh I got a sweet little thing I'm a wantin' to see in Nashville
And I'm down around Dallas and I roll on south tonight
[ guitar ] Long strips of rubber that you see
Were burnt off of this rig by the likes of me
And they'll rot along the highways in this land
I'm gonna sign my name in this diesel smoke
And let the ones that come along behind me choke
And try to beat this pace I'm a settin' anytime they can

Cause I'm a lookin' at the world through a windshield
Watchin' it fly by me on the right
Yeah I got a sweet little thing I'm a wantin' to see in Nashville
And I'm down around Dallas and roll on south tonight
[ guitar ] Well I've pushed this rig throught sleet and rain
And I've driven throught the rough terrain
Of the Rockys to the docks of old LA
Yeah on down that old Pacific shore
I swing north and run for Baltimore
Or somewhere bout two thousand miles away

Cause I'm lookin' through the world through a windshield
Watchin' it fly by me on the right
Oh I got a sweet little thing I'm wantin' to see in Nashville
And I'm down around Dallas and rollin' on south tonight
And I'm down around Dallas and rollin' on home tonight
