Monuments

We’d always take our rifle
Our trusty .22
In case we saw a snake in the afternoon

Go down to the bottoms to hunt
Arrowheads
End up shooting beer cans instead

The home burned down, but the hearth remains
Next to the rusted out body of that old Mustang
Pushed up in the pines sunk down in the clay
I always dreamed I’d drive that car one day
I always dreamed I’d drive that car one day

My brother said he wrecked it in 1979
Him and my old man were gonna fix it but never found the time
Wе’d stand around and talk but I always knew
Those are things you talk about that you nеver really do
Those are the kind of dreams that don’t come true

Some things get left behind
Here now for us to find
They stand against the winds of time
They are Monuments in my mind

The home burned down, but the hearth remains
Next to the rusted out body of that old Mustang
Pushed up in the pines sunk down in the clay
I always dreamed I’d drive that car one day
I always dreamed I’d drive that car one day

The home burned down, but the hearth remains
Next to the rusted out body of that old Mustang
Pushed up in the pines sunk down in the clay
I always dreamed I’d drive that car one day
I always dreamed I’d drive that car one day
