Artist/Band: Edwin McCain
Lyrics for Song: Popcorn Box
Lyrics for Album: The Austin Sessions [2003]



"There's a black girl singin' in the morning before church

cause she wants things just right

There's a white boy holdin' his head

cause he stayed out too late last night

At the same time Mamma's yellin'

move your asses or I'll leave you behind

The god lord don't wait for sinners all day

especially sinners of your kind.



CHORUS:

The old days

The old ways of the drive-in picture show.

It's a fact, if it was opened baby, you and me, we'd surely go.

The picture rolls by, soundtrack low, but we don't see a thing.

Feel around in the middle of your popcorn box,

at the bottom is a diamond ring. (yes)

I love you, could you, hold me tight,

like we're pretending it ain't about black or white.



Sun burns hot early in the morning

small town, best hush my mouth.

We've all got closets that we live in.

Down at Baker's house

the right fun with the wrong one

that's things we don't talk about.

Hell always seems to rise to the surface

on that you can count.



CHORUS:

The old days

The old ways of the drive-in picture show

It's a fact, if it was opened baby, you and me, we'd surely go

the picture rolls by, soundtrack low, but we don't see a thing.

Feel around in the middle of your popcorn box,

at the bottom is a diamond ring. (yes)

I love you, could you, hold me tight,

like we're pretending it ain't about black or white.



Young man makes a young man's stand,

tries to stand up tall.

Old man from the same clan

bangs his head against the wall.

Life's rough, it just get's tougher

but that ain't no thing, it's always one thing

or another, let me tell you brother....

Shut your mouth boy and sing.



CHORUS:

The old days

The old ways of the drive-in picture show

It's a fact, if it was opened baby, you and me, we'd surely go

the picture rolls by, soundtrack low, but we don't see a thing.

Feel around in the middle of your popcorn box,

at the bottom is a diamond ring. (yes)

I love you, could you, hold me tight,

like we're pretending it ain't about black or white.



I love you, could you, hold me tight,

like we're pretending it ain't about black or white."
