Car Trouble

Car Trouble

It was early in the evening
When I picked up the telephone
She said I can’t give you a ride
Cause everything’s going wrong
You see I’m having car trouble
I think I’ll just stay home
So if you want to go downtown
You’ll have to go alone

She said you’re just a hitchhiker
I need someone for the long haul
My motor used to purr for you
Now it doesn’t start at all
And I need a new mechanic
To look under my hood
My heart has been around the block
But it can still run good

Chorus:
My baby’s got car trouble
So I’m walking the floor tonight
Thinking about how good it felt
On the passenger side
I sure wish she’d come over
And take me for a little spin
I’m a long way from anywhere
And she’s got car trouble again

I said baby I’m so sorry
I know you’re running low on love
If you’ll give me just one more chance
I’ll get everything fixed up
I know you’ve heard all this before
But this time it’s the truth
Cause when the rubber meets the road
I can’t live without you

Bridge:
I don’t believe she believed
A single word I said
I don’t know if it was tears I heard
Or just her shaking her head
I said are you still there
There was silence on the line
She didn’t have to answer
I knew she’d been gone for a long time

Chorus:
My baby’s got car trouble
So I’m walking the floor tonight
Thinking about how good it felt
On the passenger side
I sure wish she’d come over
And take me for a little spin
I’m a long way from anywhere
A she’s got car trouble again
