ROAD TRIP
Chad and Jamie Wilson / Mary Gauthier

Sydney takes the high part Em takes the low
Lexi’s in the middle, singing down the road
It’s a road trip we’re going on a road trip
Dimples on her back hatch getting on in years
Oil gasket leaks but Abby’s solid in her gears
It’s a road trip, going on a road trip

Papa’s coming off the ship
(I’m coming off the ship)
Papa’s coming off the ship
(Our sailor’s coming home)
It’s a road trip, our road trip

When Pop deploys, Em’s the only guy
It’s a hard job to handle but his head stays high
It’s a road trip he’s waiting on the road trip
Us girls are working hard to make the house right
Daddy’s on his way home, one day and one night
Then a road trip, we’re going on a road trip

Papa’s coming off the ship
(I’m coming off the ship)
Papa’s coming off the ship
(Our sailor’s coming home)
It’s road trip, we’re going on a road trip

Lubbock, Brownfield, Corpus in July
Flagstaff, Phoenix, the miles are flying by
On our road trip, our road trip
Blue Ridge, Great Lakes, fishing in the Dells
Gonna visit Aunt Missy or she's gonna raise hell
It’s a road trip, our road trip

Papa’s coming off the ship
(I’m coming off the ship)
Papa’s coming off the ship
(Our sailor’s coming home)
It’s a road trip, our road trip
