I'm eight years old, daddy's cuttin' my hair
Aqua Velva on his hands
Mamma's in the kitchen, got fried green tomatoes
Poppin' in the pan

I see a home run, a goal line
Holdin' my breath gettin' baptized
I see her beautiful face under that veil
As she's walkin' down the aisle

I can hear the sirens comin'
Smell the gasoline and smoke
I'm pinned against this steerin' wheel
Pretty sure my arm is broke

I can see the flames and my life
Flashin' right before my eyes
I hope they get to me in time

I could see the headlights swerve
So I cut the wheel to the right
Last thing I saw was that bottle turned up
As he crossed that center line

I see tiny hands, brown eyes
Fallin' to sleep to that lullaby
And you slide over next to me
As I turned out the lights

I can hear the sirens comin'
Smell the gasoline and smoke
I'm pinned against this steerin' wheel
Pretty sure my arm is broke

I can see the flames and my life
Flashin' right before my eyes
I hope they get to me in time

Please Lord I'm beggin' you
Don't let me go like this
There's so much left that I wanna do
So much I don't wanna miss, no

I can see the flames and my life
Flashin' right before my eyes
I hope they get to me in time

Just get to me in time
Please get to me in, in time
