Keep It Between The Lines
Ricky Van Shelton

Lyrics

He was sittin' beside me in the passenger seat,
As I looked through the windshield at the quiet little street.
He was smiling so proud when he gave me the key,
but inside I knew he was as nervous as me.
And I said, Daddy oh Dady, are you sure I know how?
Are you sure that I'm ready to drive this car now?
He said I'm right here beside you, and you're gonna do fine.
All you gotta do is keep it between the lines.
'Cause it's a long, narrow road.
And only the Good Lord knows where it leads in the end.
But you gotta begin.
So keep your hands on the wheel,
believe in the things that are real.
Just take your time, and keep it between the lines.
I was sittin' in my chair, kinda sneakin' a look,
at him lyin' on the floor, with his coloring book.
Then he caught me watching, and he climbed on my knee,
He said, Daddy oh Daddy, would you do one with me?
Then I hugged him so tightly, as he turned the page.
Said I haven't done this since I was your age.
He said I'm right here beside you, and you're gonna do fine.
Daddy all you gotta do, is keep it between the lines.
So we finished the picture, and I put him to bed.
I got down on my knees, and I bowed my head.
And I said, Father oh Father, I feel so alone,
are you sure I can raise him with his Mommy gone?
Then the answer came back, so gentle and low,
in the words of my Daddy, from so long ago.
He said I'm right here beside you, and you're gonna do fine.
All you gotta do is keep it between the lines.
So keep your hands on the wheel,
believe in the things that are real.
Take your time, and keep it between the lines.
Just take your time, and keep it between the lines.
