The Car That Brought Us Together

by Debi Pick Marquette

He came to me out of the blue ~ no, it was really green

The green Roadrunner that he drove, most beautiful I'd seen

At first when he would look at me, then I would look right past

'Cause I was looking at his car, and thinking is it fast

 After we started dating, I was glad there was an us

I cared for him a lot, but that sweet car was such a plus

When looking forward to our date, I never had to deal

With any of his friends who might end up as a third wheel

He then asked me to marry him and with my head he'd mess

He said my gift would be his car if I would just say yes

I sure loved how that car had brought this man into my life

But could we still go parking in the car if I'm his wife

We married and we built a house, we raced and still had fun

When baby news arrived, the car and racing days were done

We had three kids and six grandkids that almost are all grown 

And I'm thankful for family, the greatest love I've known

So when I think how fast it's gone, it's followed by some tears

On May 18th, we two will then be married 50 years

And when I reminisce sometimes, I needn't go too far

'Cause every now and then, I'll stop and think about that car
