Back in my memory, a special little place
A country boy stands with a smile on his face
Watching all the people in the passenger car
Wonder if he'd ever get a chance to go that far

Sunbeam Special spinin' round the den
Waking up memories of my childhood again
Taking me to places I never have been
Sunbeam Special, I'm holding the blame

Higgy Boss is goin' a-chasing his tail
He's up and at the barking, raising all kinds of hell
Good God almighty candy-bared the door
Rat along the windows, shook the hell out of the floor

Sunbeam Special spinin' round the den
Waking up memories of my childhood again
Taking me to places I never have been
Sunbeam Special, I'm holding the blame

How Quicksy out sat(?) on the railroad track
Sunflowers bent and swayed all the way back
Critters in the tall grass went running for their life
Sunbeam special disappeared in the night

Sunbeam Special spinin' round the den
Waking up memories of my childhood again
Taking me to places I never have been
Sunbeam Special, I'm holding the blame
