Lyrics

Ain't Supposed To Be Pretty


Hey buddy, man, did you break down?
Well hop in, I'll take ya in ta town.
Nobody ever comes out this way ,good thing I was today.
So tell me, did you just buy that truck?
Oh really, well thats some rotten luck.
Sure is a looker with all that chrome, too bad her motor's blown.

Dont you mind this truck I drive
She ain't exactly pretty but she still gets by
She got some bad rust and some big dents
She doesn't run straight 'cause the frame's bent
She got an old rag for a gas cap
She got a real cute girl on the mudflap
She got a hound dog ridin' shotgun
She got some miles on but she still runs
She looks funny when she's up in the city
But trucks in the country ain't supposed to be pretty

Ah, you guessed it, she's been mine for years,
No payments, I own her free and clear.
How much you pay for your nice new truck?
This was a hundred bucks.
Bought her back in ' 79 and after 700,000 miles
She runs just fine.

She got some bad rust and some big dents
She doesn't run straight 'cause the frame's bent
She got an old rag for a gas cap
She got a real cute girl on the mudflap
She got a hound dog ridin' shotgun
She got some miles on but she still runs
She looks funny when she's up in the city
But trucks in the country ain't supposed to be pretty

Well here we are man, glad I could help.
No worries, ya take care of yourself.
And don't get too bummed 'cause your truck don't run,
In thirty years she'll be more fun.

When she got some bad rust and some big dents
She doesn't run straight 'cause the frame's bent
She got an old rag for a gas cap
She got a real cute girl on the mudflap
She got a hound dog ridin' shotgun
She got some miles on but she still runs
She looks funny when she's up in the city
But trucks in the country ain't supposed to be pretty

Yeah trucks in the country
Ain't supposed to be pretty
