"The Car in Front of Me" as written by and Luke Bryan Jim Mcbride....
Homecoming parade
You were the queen
I was riding right behind you
With the rest of the team
Saw my ring on your finger
As you waved to the crowd
I didn't know a second stringer
Could ever be so proud

The car in front of me was carrying
What I loved more than anything
My sweetest dream
Was in the car in front of me

On Wednesday nights
We'd meet at church
You'd bring the kids
And I'd come straight from work
Going home I'd read their lips
Through the window of your van
As they sang Jesus loves me
I thought God I'm a lucky man

The car in front of me was carrying
What I loved more than anything
My sweetest dream
Was in the car in front of me

Even after what the doctor said
You were strong and you believed
And you held us all together
Through one more spring

Their little hands held on to mine
As we sat in that backseat
With tears in our eyes
A long line of headlights
Strangers stopped along the road
No Monday wasn't meant
For wearing Sunday clothes

The car in front of me was carrying
What I loved more than anything
Oh, my sweetest dream
Was in the car in front of me

    Memorythis really makes me think about my grandma that passed a year ago. my grandpa and his 6 kids sat in the seats cryin. i sat there not believing that she passed, but i didn't cry. i think holding in those emotions were bad. i love this song even if it's truly a sad song. i love it and hopefully others can as well!:)
