Can't wait either. I would be happy with some good rain storms so the salt can be washed away. I'll then bring the vette out. :thumbsup:

yesssssir:) new aluminum radiator, Spal fans, waterpump, radio fixed, suspension bushings, L88 hood...maybe I'll check air in the tires:laughing:

Ummm..change oil.....and talk wifey into moving to "My Town"

There's a for sale sign on a big ol' rusty tractor.
You can't miss it, it's the first thing that you see.
Just up the road, a pale-blue water tower,
With "I Love Jenny" painted in bright green.
Hey, that's my Uncle Bill, there by the courthouse.
He'll be lowerin' the flag when the sun goes down.
And this is my town.
(Na, na, na, na, na.)
Yeah, this is my town.
(Na, na, na, na, na.)
Hey!
Where I was born, where I was raised.
Where I keep all my yesterdays.
Where I ran off 'cos I got mad,
An' it came to blows with my old man.
Where I came back to settle down,
It's where they'll put me in the ground:
This is my town.
(Na, na, na, na, na.)
Yeah, this is my town.
(Na, na, na, na, na.)
My town.

There ain't much goin' on here since they closed the mill.
But that whistle still blows ev'ry day at noon.
A bunch of us still go down to the diner.
I wonder if that interstate's still comin' through.
Come Sunday morning service, at the Church of Christ,
Well there ain't an empty seat to be found.
And this is my town.

(Na, na, na, na, na.)
Yeah, this is my town.
(Na, na, na, na, na.)
Where I was born, where I was raised.
Where I keep all my yesterdays.
Where I ran off 'cos I got mad,
An' it came to blows with my old man.
Where I came back to settle down,
It's where they'll put me in the ground:
This is my town.
(Na, na, na, na, na.)
Yeah, this is my town.
(Na, na, na, na, na.)
My town.

Instrumental break

Well, I bought and painted up that rusty tractor.
You can't miss it, it's sittin' right there in our yard.
The County came and took that water tower,
And that's Jenny, with a baby, in the car.
Ah, we're off to Sunday service at the Church of Christ,
And if we want a seat, we better leave right now.
And maybe later, me an old T-roy will show you around,
Our town.

(Na, na, na, na, na.)
Yeah, this is my town.
(Na, na, na, na, na.)
Yeah, where I was born, where I was raised.
Where I keep all my yesterdays.
Where I ran off 'cos I got mad,
An' it came to blows with my old man.
Where I came back to settle down,
It's where they'll put me in the ground:
This is my town.
(Na, na, na, na, na.)

To fade out.

Yeah, this is my town.
(Na, na, na, na, na.)
This is my town.
(Na, na, na, na, na.)
My town.

I wanna go where he came from...:cheers: :thumbsup:

Well I was rollin' wheels and shiftin' gears,
'Round that Jersey Turnpike.
When Barney stopped me with his gun,
Ten minutes after midnight.
Said: "Sir, you broke the limit in that rusty ol' truck.
"I don't know about that accent, son,
"Just where do you come from?"

I said: "Where I come from,
"It's cornbread and chicken.
"Where I come from, a lotta front porch sittin'.
"Where I come from, tryin' to make a livin',
"And workin' hard to get to heaven,
"Where I come from."

Well, I was south of Detroit City,
I pulled in this country kitchen.
To try their brand of barbecue,
The sign said: "Finger-lickin'."
Well, I paid the tab and the lady asked me,
How'd I like my biscuit?
"I'll be honest with you ma'am,
"It ain't like mama fixed it."

"'Cos where I come from,
"It's cornbread and chicken.
"Where I come from, a lotta front porch pickin'.
"Where I come from, tryin' to make a livin',
"And workin' hard to get to heaven,
"Where I come from."

Instrumental break.

I was chasin' sun on 101,
Somewhere around Ventura.
I lost a universal joint and I had to use my finger.
This tall lady stopped and asked,
If I had plans for dinner.
Said: "No thanks ma'am, back home,
"We like the girls that sing soprana.

"'Cos where I come from,
"It's cornbread and chicken.
"Where I come from, a lotta front porch sittin'.
"Where I come from, tryin' to make a livin',
"And workin' hard to get to heaven,
"Where I come from."

Instrumental break.

Well, I was headed home on 65,
Somewhere around Kentucky.
When the CB rang for the bobtail rig,
That's rollin' on like thunder.
Well, I answered him and he asked me:
"Aren't you from out in Tulsa."
"No, but you might have seen me there,
"I just dropped a load of salsa.

"Where I come from,
"It's cornbread and chicken.
"Where I come from, a lotta front porch pickin'.
"Where I come from, tryin' to make a livin',
"And workin' hard to get to heaven,
"Where I come ........."

"Where I come from,
"Yeah, It's cornbread and chicken.
"Where I come from, a lotta back porch pickin'.
"Where I come from, tryin' to make a livin',
"And workin' hard to get to heaven,
"Where I come from.
"Where I come from.

"Yeah, where I come from."
"A lotta front porch sitting.
"Starin' up at heaven,
"Where I come from.
"Where I come from.
"Tryin' to make a livin'.

"Oh, where I come from.
"Where I come from.
