  • "Boy, I'd love to have that car,"
    I whispered to my Dad
    "I've always heard a mustang flies!
    We could fix it up and make it new again
    All it needs is just a little time"

    Since Momma passed away
    He's always workin' overtime
    I know that he can not afford to buy that car
    Even though he'd love to make it mine

    It's not the car that I'm needin'
    Just a chance to be with him
    I know that once these days roll past us
    They will never come again
    So little time, and we spend way too much apart
    There would always be a part of us
    Together in that car

    Finally let go of that dream
    And the time we could have shared
    It was a distant memory
    Until last fall a call came sayin' Dad was gone
    Could I come quick, he left a note for me

    Buried Dad right next to Mom
    Up on Crowley's Ridge
    'N' there I said my last goodbye
    I opened up he note and found a set of keys
    "Here's your car son, I hope it flies!"

    It's not the car you're needin'
    But it's my chance to be with you
    I hope you understand I always did
    The best that I could do
    So little time, and we spent way too much apart
    Now there will always be a part of us
    Together in that car

    Yes, there will always be a part of us
