"Automatic"

Quarter in a payphone
Drying laundry on the line
Watching Sun Tea in the window
Pocket Watch tellin' me
Seems like only yesterday, I'd get a blank cassette
Record the country countdown, 'cause I couldn't buy it yet <br>

If we drove all the way to Dallas just to buy an Easter dress
We’d take along a Rand McNally, stand in line to pay for gas
God knows that shifting gears ain’t what it used to be
I learned to drive that 55 just like a queen, three on a tree <br>

Hey whatever happened to, waitin' your turn
Doing it all by hand, cause when everything is handed to you
It's all only worth as much as the time you put in
In all just seems so good the way we had it
Back before everything became, automatic<br>

If you had something to say
You'd write it on a piece of paper
Then you put a stamp on it
And they'd get it three days later
Boys would call the girls
And girls would turn them now
Staying married was on the way to work your problems out<br>

Hey whatever happened to, waitin' your turn
Doing it all by hand, cause when everything is handed to you
It's all only worth as much as the time you put in
In all just seems so good the way we had it
Back before everything became, automatic
Automatic <br>

Let's pull the windows down
Windows with the cranks
Come on let's take a picture
The kind you gotta shake

Hey whatever happened to, waitin' your turn
Doing it all by hand, cause when everything is handed to you
It's all only worth as much as the time you put in
In all just seems so good the way we had it
Back before everything became, automatic
