Alan Jackson ~ Drive (For Daddy Gene)

It’s painted red, the stripe was white
It was eighteen feet from the bow to the stern light
Second hand from a dealer in Atlanta
I rode up with Daddy when he went there to get her
Put on a shine, put on a motor
Built out of love, made for the water
Ran her for years, till the transom got rotten
A piece of my childhood will never be forgotten

It was just an old plywood boat
A ‘75 Johnson with electric choke
A young boy two hands on the wheel
I can’t replace the way it make me feel
And I would turn her sharp
And I would make her whine
He’d say, you can’t beat the way an old wood boat rides
Just a little lake across the Alabama line
But I was king of the ocean
When Daddy let me drive

Just an old half-ton shortbed Ford
My uncle bought new in '64
Daddy got it right 'cause the engine was smoking
Couple of burned valves and he had it going
He let me drive here when we’d haul off a load
Down a dirt strip where we’d dump trash off of Thigpen Road
Sit up in the seat and stretch my feet out to the pedals
Smiling like a hero that just received his medal

It was just an old hand-me-down Ford
With three-speed on the column and a dent in the door
A young boy two hands on the wheel
I can’t replace the way it made me feel
And I would press that clutch
And I would keep it right
And he’d say, a little slower son you’re doing just fine
Just a dirt road with trash on each side
But I was Mario Andretti
When Daddy let me drive

I’m grown up now three daughters of my own
To let them drive my old Jeep across a pasture in our home
Maybe one day they’ll reach back in their file
And pull out that old memory
And think of me and smile, and say

Just an old worn-out Jeep
Rusty old floorboard, hot on my feet
A young girl two hands on the wheel
I can’t replace the way it made me feel
And he’d say, turn it left and steer it right
Straighten up girl now you’re doing just fine
Just a little valley by the river where we’d ride
But I was high on a mountain
When Daddy let me drive

When Daddy let me drive
Oh he let me drive
Daddy let me drive

It’s just an old plywood boat
With a '75 Johnson with electric choke

The transom stern of HMS Vanguard during construction. Instead of having a gradual tapering off section, it was found that simply ending the hull anywhere within up to six feet of the rudder had no significant impact on performance. The loss of weight meanwhile gave an increase in speed and acceleration. It was a discovery made in the design studies for the N3-class battleships and G3-class battlecruisers of the early 1920s - colossal ships which never came to fruition.

Victorian “Dollhouse” 1890’s Queen Anne Elwood Indiana by John S.
Via Flickr:
Directly across the street from the house that appeared long vacant in streetview (but is now occupied) is this sweetheart of a Victorian cottage. It has aluminum siding but is otherwise 100% original looking with two fancy stained glass transom windows. The porch with the swing and white wicker furniture looks especially inviting. No modern house has this much charm.

The first time I remember women reacting to me was when we were filming “Hud” in Texas. Women were literally trying to climb through the transoms at the motel where I stayed. At first, it’s flattering to the ego. At first. Then you realize that they’re mixing me up with the roles I play - characters created by writers who have nothing to do with who I am.

“Madam, you do not call a man a fool on the transom of his own home. A home that happens to be the world headquarters of a company keeping streaming video of a man who’s about to drink his own urine online for tens of thousands of Filipinos. Does that sound like foolishness to you?”

  • Realtor: "I think you would be foolish to turn this down."
  • Erlich: "Did you just call me a fool?"
  • Realtor: "No. All I meant was..."
