Jonathan Wilson - '69 Corvette Lyrics




Put on your jacket, we are gone
I need an adventure and I feel like leaving
I've been in this hotel room too long
The marble prison requires housekeeping

So long
So long

I came to this city full of smiles
Opportunity, every miracle mile
I still think of Carolina sometimes
I miss my family, I miss that feeling

I miss home
I miss home

Where daddy loves adventures in his '69 Corvette
Six pack of silver bullets in his arms
And me and momma will drink tequila and it gets us to cacklin'
And I sit on those extra pillows all alone
And they say, "Pay attention to their manners just as they are leaving
If they thank you for the food or the wine"
Well it floats right by till one day you're looking at polaroids and grieving
So remember to tell 'em you love 'em every time
Every time
One more time

Yeah, daddy loves adventures in his '69 Corvette
Six pack of silver bullets in his arms
And me and momma drink cheap tequila and it gets us both cacklin'
And I sleep on all those extra pillows alone
And daddy's got tennis elbow, it's from practicing his violin
I see him slowin' down, not an easy thing to swallow, when it's your old man
Well it floats right by till one day you're looking at polaroids and grieving
So remember to tell 'em you love 'em every time
Every time
One more time
One more time

    Interesting old bar.........with 1970's beer cans all over the back shelving. Songs pretty good too. Love acoustic guitar. . Would be fun to go back..........what a simpler time, with so much time to go forward, and here we are, that was fast. WTF......make it slow down please.

  24. Saccharine Sasquatch

    maybe that's why the spirits tell me to detach from nostalgia and longing for times long past: Too many feels; a different kind of trickster. Loved ones gone or just not present taking up too much space in our hearts...letting go doesn't mean abandoning.

  25. Paul Revelli

    Extraordinary, Jonathan. Love the song, the video and the message. Can't wait for the next LP. Peace.

  26. Ricardo Coelho

    Really excited to share my new song “69 Corvette” along with the music video with you guys. Listen to it elsewhere here: https://jonathanwilson.lnk.to/69Corvette

    "69 Corvette" is a trip back in time to my youth in North Carolina... growing up playing guitars, messing around with old Chevys, getting drunk for the first time... It’s a song about traveling and seeking fame and fortune. Most of all, it's a song about my family, my people, who I love very much. Check out the tear-jerking fiddle by the one and only Mark O'Connor.
