about

Truck
This one follows the familiar middle-aged male song writing theme of ditching it all and running away like Bonnie and Clyde. Love and camping are two fairly universal themes although rarely tackled together in the same song. In the bridge section Gina layered harmonies on until Cam said it sounded like yacht rock and we thought, ‘Yeah, we’ve done it’. Deep down Truck is kind of tribute to the West Coast sound of the late 70’s that we secretly love.

lyrics

Truck J.Gronow

V1
I’m going to steal us a great big truck
I’m going to come around, take you in my arms and steal you off
We’re going to ride off into the sun
They want to chase us down, only thing they’ll see will be our dust
Chase our dust
Chase our dust

V2
With dirt on the floor and a ceiling of sun
We’re going to make our camp
Someplace out there far from normal stuff
We’re going to do whatever we want
Under a setting sun
You and I will make a mighty love
A might love….

Bridge
Thinking of all the things we can do without
All of the stuff that we don’t read right now
All of the places here that we used to go
I don’t miss anything for a second now
Cos you should have, you should have, you should have, anything you want honey
Cos you should have, you should have, you should have, anything you want honey

V3
I’m going to steal us a great big truck
I’m going to come around
Take you in my arms and steal you off…
