lyrics

Written by Greg Brown

I’m driving my blue car baby
Down from the mountain so high
I’m driving my blue car baby
Down from the mountain so high
I’m driving my blue car baby
Coming down and gonna say goodbye

The sunrise is a miracle
But it can’t hold a candle to you
The sunrise is a miracle
But it can’t hold a candle to you
Do you remember them rides in my blue car
Back when it was brand new

Well it’s a good old car
But the clutch is a little loose
And the brakes are screaming
A song called what’s the use
But it’s good for one more trip
One more trip to you

Oh the lightning’s meant to strike
The tall pine trees
And the birds are meant to cry
And wheel in the breeze
Ah But some things baby
I guess they just ain’t meant to be

When I get back up on the mountain
I’ll close my door against the wind
When I get back up on the mountain
I’ll close my door against the wind
I’ll park my old blue car
I might fall down the mountain
But I will never fall in love (with you) again

I’m driving my blue car baby
Down from the mountain so high
I’m driving my blue car baby
Down from the mountain so high
I’m driving my blue car baby
Coming down and gonna say goodbye
