lyrics

There’s rust on my axles
Rust on my frame
Rust on my pedals from
Sittin’ out in the rain

I was your favorite
When you were just five
Three wheels of thunder
‘Til you set me aside
But I didn’t mind
It’s all part of the plan
On your way to becoming a man

There’s rust on my saddle
Rust on my chain
Rust on my spokes from
Sittin’ out in the rain

I was your favorite
When you were itchin’ to ride
Four wheels, then two
‘Til you put me aside
But I didn’t mind
It’s all part of the plan
On your way to becoming a man


A man with a dream
To ride ‘cross this great span
With 81 horses ‘tween
You and the land
Then along came the call
To join Uncle Sam
Hang up your wheels
Take a gun in your hand
A gun to defend
Things you don’t understand
In a faraway jungle
In some foreign land

Then the rockets rained down
Washed away all your plans
Brought a chair with big wheels
That you push with your hands

So there’s lead in your shoulders
And steel in your brain
And blood from your heart
Slowing down in your veins

Now there’s rust on my handles
And rust on my frame
Rust on my spokes from
Sittin’ out in the rain

You were my favorite
As you rolled me around
Until it was time
To lay yourself down

But I don’t mind
It’s all part of the plan
To let go of being a man
To let go of being a man

Knowing that songwriting was “the ticket” to girls, fame, and fortune, with his songs Eugene found his dream girl and became a hundred- aire! Whether writing alone or with others, and with influences ranging from Tom Lehrer to Tom Petty, Hayseed Dixie to AC/DC, and Ray Stevens to Stevie Ray, his music pays tribute everywhere and includes splashes of humor whenever possible.
