The Lyrics

This is a song about an old car that I used to own when I first started my handyman business. After several other wagons, vans and Suburbans, I finally bought a 1984 Chevy Stepvan, and since the OS in all versions, from the original 1974 Sammy Johns Top 40 hit to the Waylon Jennings and Sammy Kershaw covers that did not crack the Top 40 country charts if they were even released to radio stations (I used the Sammy Kershaw version since I had the lyrics) adapted well to my idea for my second parody along with the fact that I drive a Chevy van, albeit of a much different variety than Sammy Johns wrote about way back when, for business purposes, made for an amusing irony. And yes, the real Country Squire broke down in a very small town, specifically, one in Wisconsin that I will not name to protect my privacy. Enjoy! -Mr. K, 11/19/2008
I had one time, an old station wagon
L-T-D Ford, a sev'ny-four
She was tired, with one million miles
She was trash, but she'd get me down the road

She was a beat-up piece of crap
Motor oil leaking from the block
She would never beat a GTR
She was an old Ford Country Squire, and was a good old car

Her red paint was faded and flaking
The woodgrain was peeling off
Only got 8 miles to the gallon
She was ugly without any value 'cause

She was a beat-up piece of crap
Motor oil leaking from the block
She would never beat a GTR
She was an old Ford Country Squire, and was a good old car

She broke on down in a town that was so small
You could not call it "one-horse"
A cracked en-gine block, she was not worth repairing
And it's a shame I won't be driving her again

(Chorus II)

It was a beat-up piece of crap
Motor oil leaking from the block
She would never beat a GTR
My old Ford Country Squire
And I miss her so much

(Repeat Chorus II)

And I miss her so much...

(Repeat Chorus II)

Sir, I think I saw this vehicle . . . making its way to Kudahay, Wisc. . . . pretty cheesy, Sir!
Mr. K - November 20, 2008 - Report this comment
I have been to Kudahay a few times, and I always worked on various things on a dairy farm there. If the Country Squire that you saw had a homemade ladder rack on one side and a homemade lumber/pipe rack on the other, dual CB antennas and "Kovach's Handyman Service" with a Kenosha phone number on each rear quarter window, that was me. Great compliment by the way!

That should be "Cudahy", not "Kudahay". I have not been in Wisconsin for so long that I momentarily forgot the town name's spelling.

Sorry for the "K" spelling . . I'm rather fond it, Sir K. . . . plus, I had forgotten about good ol' Kenosha!

A belated thank-you goes out to MilWOWKeyVo/LittleCudaHay.
