I Only Saw The Dust

Refrain
I only saw the dust
From the truck go by.
I didn't know if to laugh
I didn't know if to cry.
Times had been hard
I'd spent my money at the bar
That's when I realized
It wasn't my truck
But my car.

Verse 1
I was on the porch at the store
Drinking a bottle of pop.
When I saw the dust coming
I knew it wasn't gonna stop.
It flew by so fast
As the dust filled my eyes
I could barely see it
As it disappeared
(Just) Beyond the rise.

(Choral Option - Yes, I ran)

Verse 2
I ran behind it yelling
Honey, I know I must have lied
And when I looked around
A handsome woman
Was standing by my side.
I don't know where she come from
I was at the store for food.
Now all I can remember
Is the dust behind you.

Refrain
I only saw the dust
From the truck go by.
I didn't know if to laugh
I didn't know if to cry.
Times had been hard
I'd spent my money at the bar
That's when I relized
It wasn't my truck
But my car.

Verse 3
I don't know what to do
I don't know what to say.
Before you all I had
Was the sun to brighten my day.
You've loved me since forever
You've given me everything
And all I had to do
Is just play music
Write and sing.

(Choral Option - Yet, somehow)

Verse 4
Somehow I'd let my car
Take up all my lovin time.
I spent all my money on it
Next to my last dime.
I don't see how I did it
You're the best woman by far
I didn't intend to replace you
With that blamed ole car.

Refrain
I only saw the dust
From the truck go by.
I didn't know if to laugh
I didn't know if to cry.
Times had been hard
I'd spent my money at the bar
that's when I realized
It wasn't my truck
But my car.

Verse 5
I'll let nothing come between us
Or cause me to split my time.
I'll never let nothing happen
To change my mind.
Times have been rough
Times have been hard.
I know you needed more than roses
And some cute romantic car.

(Slow with feelings)

Verse 6
If I've got to let you go
To live free as a bird.
I'll make sure everything you say
(to the judge)
With my heart is heard.
Honey, I can't conceive it
I'll regret leaving you alone
But I beg you to reconsider
And please, please, please, ....
Just bring my car back home.

Refrain
I only saw th dust
From the truck go by
I didn't know if to laugh
I didn't know if to cry.
Times had been hard
I'd spent my money at the bar
That's when I realized
It wasn't my truck
But my car.
