Lyrics:
I pulled the engine with a block and chain
Got the oil pump in just before the rain
In the gravel drive, it's a Pontiac
Come the weekend you'll find me at the track
It's a '74, Dad bought it new
Still mostly stock and it's rusted through
I only worry 'bout what's underneath
What she looks like don't mean a damn to me
'Cause you don't need that flash and shine
You just need to be hard off the line
So keep your lacquer chrome and flames
I'll paint mine primer gray
Some men are rich, and they'll let you know
Some guys act tough, it's all a show
I know the things men hold inside
We're all about the same when you turn out the lights
'Cause you don't need that flash and shine
You just need to be hard off the line
So keep your lacquer chrome and flames
I'll paint mine primer gray
Dad was pretty fast back in the day
"Bring that trophy home now, " Mama used to say
They sit there on the shelf gathering dust
Luck turns to loss, chrome to rust
I've got that car detailed and tuned
My boy's 16, he'll be driving soon
But he won't drive that old '74
Kids today, they all want something more
But you don't need that flash and shine
You just need to be hard off the line
So keep your lacquer chrome and flames
I'll paint mine primer gray
It's what you do, not what you say
I'll paint mine primer gray
