Aunt Johnnie was like six years older than me. Four of us boy cousins were the same age, Johnnie was more of an older cousin than an aunt, and she was good for crazy adventures. This was one of them. Recorded live at Moonlight on the Mountain in Hoover Alabama.


Down the Dirt Road With Aunt Johnnie
Gary Allison Furr

Hop in the Dodge, pedal to the floor
Down the old dirt road next to Grampa's store
Hole in the backseat floor and the road flies by
Aunt Johnnie starts laughing and so do I

Riding Down the Dirt Road With Aunt Johnnie
Jump the railroad tracks with Aunt Johnny
Its three fourths scary and one half funny
Better hold on for your dear life, honey
Riding Down the Dirt Road With Aunt Johnnie

Aunt Johnnie’s not much older than us.
She didn’t tell his mama when Andy cussed
Cigarette hanging from her pretty mouth
Weaving between the ditches in the old time South

Rocks go flying, to and fro
Dust clouds telling the whole world where we go
Mama don't know, papa don't know
She got no license but she sure can go!

Carload of Kids too young to drive
Back before seatbelts kept us alive
Sure got a crazy look in her eye.
Don’t know if we’ll live or die.

Stop at the haunted house, far from town
Say there’s a murdered man’s ghost walking around
Say he was lookin’ for a boy a lot like you,
Run for your life just in case its true
