Well done! Why isn’t this on the radio? One minor suggestion in the chorus; substitute “making promises we couldn’t keep” to “making promises we’d never keep.” Just my only criti

Courtney, thanks for your feedback and I like your suggestion! It is not on the radio because it doesn’t sound contemporary enough in the world of pop country.

Ol’ Willy’s Jeep

Written by Charles Cater


We bought it off Miller’s lot by the State highway
Cost me two hot summers of buckin’ hay
You gave a rebel yell as we peeled outta’ that place
And that’s what made it fun
Girl you were always up

Four bald tires and the paint faded green,
my shotgun rider in her cutoff jeans
Radio blastin’ out some old Springsteen
Yeah and we rolled on,
man we were gone

Me and You in that OL’ WILLY’S Jeep
Makin’ promises that we couldn’t keep
Stayin’ out all night getting buzzed on the cheap
And everything was alright
When I held you tight
In that OL’ WILLY’S JEEP

Down that old mine road with your red hair flyin’,
Your eyes bluer than the Marshall Tucker sky,
Those lips lit me up like the Fourth of July
Yeah and we were free,
baby you and me

Parkin’ out by the lake in the still of the night,
rocking you gently to the hum of the pines
Whisperin’ I love you I was out of my mind
And head over heels,
the way you made me feel

(Chorus)

Well our love burned bright like those KC lights that turned the darkness into day
Like fireflies in a jar you only go so far until it starts to fade away
Now I’m dreaming, always dreaming, you’ve got me dreaming
of all the things I should have told you, wishing I could still hold you

(Chorus)

In that OL’ WILLY’S JEEP
(repeat, ad lib to end)
