Back Before Everything Became Automatic…

Here’s the music video to one of my favorite Miranda Lambert songs, Automatic. The video is awesome, and I have shared the lyrics below. I took the time to do this one because its exactly how I feel about all of it today. The world…life. Miranda and I are about the same age so I really relate to this song.

The Lyrics

Automatic, by Miranda Lambert

Quarter in a payphone
Drying laundry on the line
Watching sun tea in the window
Pocket watch, tellin’ time
Seems like only yesterday, I’d get a blank cassette
Record the country countdown, ’cause I couldn’t buy it yet

If we drove all the way to Dallas
Just to buy an Easter dress
We’d take along a Rand McNally, stand in line to pay for gas
God knows that shifting gears ain’t what it used to be
I learned to drive that ’55, just like a queen three on a tree

Hey what ever happened to waiting your turn
Doing it all by hand, ’cause when everything is handed to you
It’s only worth as much as the time put in
It all just seems so good the way we had it
Back before everything became automatic

If you had something to say
You’d write it on a piece of paper
Then you put a stamp on it
And they’d get it three days later
Boys would call the girls
And girls would turn them down
Staying married was the only way to work your problems out

Hey what ever happened to waiting your turn
Doing it all by hand, ’cause when everything is handed to you
It’s only worth as much as the time put in
It all just seems so good the way we had it
Back before everything became automatic
Automatic

Let’s roll the windows down
Windows with the cranks
Come on let’s take a picture
The kind you gotta shake

Hey what ever happened to waiting your turn
Doing it all by hand, ’cause when everything is handed to you
It’s only worth as much as the time put in
It all just seems so good the way we had it
Back before everything became automatic, automatic
