From the recording The Old Truck
We recorded this with Emma the other day...she was so excited. And I was so proud. It’s one of the many silly songs we write around the house and when we're out and about. So we thought we’d start recording them.
“The Old Truck” is something we wrote, honestly, to take the shame out of riding around in my old pick up truck. It’s just an old clunker, but we roll the windows down, sing this song and it’s like we’re in Chitty-Chitty Bang-Bang or something.
And yes, that's Emma doing all the voices in the "kids’ chorus". :) She was such a trooper…she did at least 8 takes! Now she thinks she’s REALLY Taylor Swift!

We're riding down the road in the old truck.
Riding down the road in the old truck.
Flying like a rocketship,
Sailing like a pirate ship,
In the old truck, riding down the road.
