Lyrics

Quarter in a payphone, dryin' laundry on the line,
watchin' sun tea in the window,
pocket watch,
tellin' time.
Seems like only yesterday I'd get a blank cassette,
record the country countdown, 'cause I couldn't buy it yet.
If we drove all the way to Dallas just to buy an Easter dress,
we'd take along a Rand McNally,
stand in line to pay for gas.
God knows that shiftin' gears, ain't what it used to be,
I learned to drive that 'Fifty Five, just like a queen, three on a tree.
Hey, whatever happened to,
waitin' your turn,
doin' it all by hand?
'Cause when everything is handed to you,
it's only worth, as much as the time put in.
It all just seemed so good the way we had it,
back before everything became,
automatic.
If you had somethin' to say, you'd write it on a piece of paper,
then you'd put a stamp on it,
and they'd get it three days later.
Boys would call the girls,
and girls would turn them down.
Stayin' married was the only way to work your problems out.
Hey, whatever happened to,
waitin' your turn,
doin' it all by hand?
'Cause when everything is handed to you,
it's only worth, as much as the time put in.
It all just seemed so good the way we had it,
back before everything became,
automatic, yeah.
Automatic.
Let's roll the windows down,
windows with the cranks,
come on let's take a picture,
the kind you gotta shake.
Hey, whatever happened to,
waitin' your turn,
doin' it all by hand?
'Cause when everything is handed to you,
it's only worth, as much as the time put in.
It all just seemed so good the way we had it,
back before everything became,
automatic, yeah.
Automatic.
