"Where ya' goin'", she said?
"I have to take a leak" I replied in protest
"Are ya' comin' back?" she said through her devious smile.
"Of course; I'll always come back to you."
And in a way I do always come back to her. Yeah, she went off to college up north and I stayed close and went to UGa, but on a spring day when I smell that honeysuckle my mind comes back to her and those lazy days by the river and the scent of her and a new car.
Author's note: After thinking about it I thought of changing the song to the Sammy John's song "Chevy Van." But the car is obviously not a van and that Lobo song is what hit me initially when I saw the photo and I think what is fun is to write about the first thing that hits my mind; kind of like an "ink blot" test. I wonder what all these FFF say about my screwed up mind! :)
Anyway, this is not a completely accurate depiction. That song was recorded in 1971. I say the car is a Plymouth because it reminds me of a car my dad drove in the early 70's which was a hand-me-down from his dad. That Plymouth was probably about a '66. Adding that up it's hard to imagine a "new care" smell in 1971 from a 1966 Plymouth. But in the end I claim creative license!
