A simple country song about young lovers - at the point where they are striking out on their own - breaking free from parents.

Words and music by Jim Byrne

Staying in at the weekend
when there's so much to do
Gather all the money we can get
I know you want to see me
when the sun comes up
But I have to go
cause we ain't married yet.

I'll get my daddy's car
and we can ride
and you don't ever need to go home
I'll get my daddy's car
and we can ride
and satisfy the urge you have to roam

You're telling me
that you feel like you're caged
Daddy he doesn't understand
You say you want to stay out late
and he tells you that you can't
But come the weekend girl
yes you can

I'll get my daddy's car
and we can ride
and you don't ever need to go home
I'll get my daddy's car
and we can ride
and satisfy the urge you have to roam

The roses by the side of the road
they smell so sweet
But I work so hard
I haven't got the time
to partake of that pleasure
But the love that we have
is just as sweet
Especially little girl
when you kiss my soft warm cheek

I'll get my daddy's car
and we can ride
and you don't ever need to go home
I'll get my daddy's car
and we can ride
and satisfy the urge you have to roam
