lyrics

Well my daddy he was built for travelin
Though growin up he rarely left the yard
But he swore if he was blessed with his own family
He’d bound around the world without regard

He scoured the Penny Saver, huntin page by page
And trolling through that auto swap took all our Saturdays
Lookin for a vehicle that’s worth respect and praise
And when we’d drive it down the block so many we’d amaze

We were searchin for daddy’s Winnebago
We wanna see the world in V8 harmony
Recreation can’t be done another way oh
In a twenty four footer from Forest City

I recalled the day he backed her up the driveway
Flying “W” on the side beyond belief
Seemed that rig would just go on forever
She ain’t a Minnie Winnie she's a Super Chief

She’d weathered several owners who didn’t treat her well.
Short on upkeep, long on miles never lost that smell
From the beamin' look on Daddy’s face I know he couldn’t tell
And if anyone besmirched her well he’d holler go to hell

We'd pull out in Daddy's Winnebago
To see the world in V8 harmony
Recreation can’t be done another way-o
Than with all of my kin right next to me

The cupboard stocked with tang and cans of tuna
Chinese checkers and Guess Who upon the shelf
He’d rev her at the top of each long weekend
Cause them four corners ain’t gonna see themselves

We seen both Dakotas and all them southern states
Mud and Sandy Rivers and most of them Great Lakes
Passin by the Ho Jos and all them Super Eights
No flea infested motel is gonna seal our fate

We’ll sleep out in daddy’s Winnebago
Gonna chart the stars in V8 harmony
Constellations can’t be seen another way-o
Than with the whole damn family right next to me

Daddy’s touring days are over, he had to leave the road
Me I hit the bottle and harder stuff I’m told
Pissing off a future, a childhood laced with gold
There’s one thing that I still got that won’t be bought or sold


Well all I got is daddy’s Winnebago
Up on four blocks down by the creek
I guess I could have gone another way oh
I just sit and watch the radiator leak
