Shiny Dime

I've got a shiny dime in my pocket
I get in my beat up car and I start it
I start it with a charm, push it with my arms
cuz I'm driving all night long just to get back home to you

And as I drive along I might be singing
or arms up on the wheel just thinking
dashboard in the dark, purify my heart
radio, clear signal to get me back home to you

cuz I've been a long time coming
it will be so fine to see your face
turn your frown upside down sugar
and put a smile in it's place

When I get to town little darling
I'll take my shiny dime out of my pocket
slide it in the slot, hear that silver drop
cuz I'm dialing, dialing lips on the receiver

dialing, dialing lips on the receiver
just to tell you it won't be long till I'm back home with you

driving, driving, radio, radio, dialing, dialing
lips on the receiver

Ride back
