Lyrics for 'Automatic" from Miranda Lambert

 

Quarter in a payphone,

Drying laundry on the line

Watching Sun Tea in the window

Pocket Watch telling time,

Seems like only yesterday, I'd get a blank cassette

Record the country countdown,  cause I couldn't buy it yet.

 

If we drove all the way to Dallas, Just to buy a Easter dress

We'd take along a Rand McNally, stand in the line to pay for gas

God knows that shiftin' gears, ain't what it used to be

I learned to drive that '55, just like a Queen, three on a tree.

 

Hey whatever happened to, waitin' your turn, doing it all by hand

Cause when everything is handed to you it's only worth as much as the time put in, 

It all just seems so good the way we had it,

Back before everything became Automatic.

 

If you had somethin' 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 down,

Staying married was on the way to work your problems out.

 

Hey whatever happened to, waitin' yout turn, doing it all by hand,

Cause when everything is handed to you it's only worth as much as the time put in.

It all just seems so good, the way we had it

back before everything became Automatic.

 

Automatic, 

Let's pull the windows down,wWindows 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 only worth as much as the time put in.

It all just seemed so good the way we had it,

back before everything became, Automatic

Automatic
