If I Only Had a Truck

I’ve got my T-Shirt, it’s whiter than I’ll ever be
I’ve got my worn out boots just customized for me
I’ve got my work-worn jeans from my ten hour days
And my ol’ baseball hat promoting Chevrolets

Chorus 1:
And if I only had a truck
I might have someone holding me tight
like that girl I’ve known since grade school
who wasn’t impressed by my BMX bike
We’d go muddin’ out in the cornfields
and have sweet kisses out by the lake
I’d have it all, the girl and good luck
If I, If I, If I only had a truck

I was raised right, got myself mostly A’s & B’s
At the General Store I’d hear ’em shoot the breeze
Wanted to be like them – all those hardworkin’ men
Not like my beachgoing friends who’d go hang ten

Bridge:
Instead I learned how to work on cars
but I didn’t get to labor on a farm
And I took up pitchin’ in High School
but Senior year I blew out my arm

Chorus 2:
And if I only had a truck
Things would have worked out differently
When someone needed help movin’ stuff
They’d always call & count on me
Now I’m just a mechanic at a Quick Lube
and every day on my lunch break
I try to figure out how I’m gonna get unstuck
Man, it wouldn’t suck,
if I, if I, if I… only had a truck

Instrumental break, then

Chorus 1:
If I only had a truck
I might have someone holding me tight
like that girl I’ve known since grade school
who wasn’t impressed by my BMX bike
We’d go muddin’ out in the cornfields
and have sweet kisses out by the lake
I’d have it all, the girl and good luck
If I, If I, If I only had a truck

If I, If I, If I only had a truck
