Automobile of Life
by Roy Acuff



Some people are just like an automobile
They'll run fine when every thing is right
When the roads are all clear and the weather is fine
And there's plenty of sunshine and light

But often they come to a wash out
And then get stuck and have to detour
Maybe a break in the casting will prove
They never were built to endure

Get plenty of water and plenty of oil
And the best gasoline you can find
Have the engine tuned up and look out for your breaks
You'll have some hard places to climb

Look out for the tires for the blowouts will come
On a dangerous curve deep and neigh
But if you'll let Jesus take hold of the wheel
You'll make it to heaven on high

Some auto's are painted and polished so bright
They sell for more than they are worth
And some people think their profession
Will do stop short of the bibles new birth

Just start up your engine and then
You can tell if the thing is hitting on six
For if you depend on the looks of the car
You'll be in a terrible fix

Now all our profession's of powder and paint
Though lovely upon the outside
Won't answer to God for He looks on the heart
It matters not how hard we've tried

So if you are stuck in the quicksand of sin
And wondering and floundering about
Just let God's great engine of glory and grace
With a cable of love pull you out

Get plenty of water and plenty of oil
And the best gasoline you can find
Have the engine tuned up and look out for your breaks
You'll have some hard places to climb

Look out for the tires for the blowouts will come
On a dangerous curve deep and neigh
But if you'll let Jesus take hold of the wheel
You'll make it to heaven on high
