The Old Car (Labrador Black Spruce) video

I parked that old car of mine
in the backyard by the fence,
I got a job at Wabush Mines
and I ain't been home since;
I had a letter from my mom saying,
boy, you're gone so long,
The grass is growing through the floor
and one headlight is gone.

As I look out through the window
I remember the nights,
I walked the floor and prayed to God
that you'd be home alright;
But you're in Labrador now,
those memories will fade,
But not the hopes that you'll
come back again with me someday.

The keys are in the ashtray,
the butts are on the floor,
The seats are all faded,
faded now and torn;
Saint Christopher is on the dash,
he never let you down,
He kept you safely on the road
those late nights in from town.

As I look out through the window
I remember the nights,
I walked the floor and prayed to God
that you'd be home alright;
But you're in Labrador now,
those memories will fade,
But not the hopes that you'll
come back again with me someday.

Somebody came and offered
to tow your car away,
He said that it was clean-up week
and I wouldn't have to pay;
I turned down his kind offer,
I just couldn't let her go,
For I know that you'd be needing it
someday when you came home.

As I look out through the window
I remember the nights,
I walked the floor and prayed to God
that you'd be home alright;
But you're in Labrador now,
those memories will fade,
But not the hopes that you'll
come back again with me someday.

As I look out through the window
I remember the nights,
I walked the floor and prayed to God
that you'd be home alright;
But you're in Labrador now,
those memories will fade,
But not the hopes that you'll
come back again with me someday.
