She locked her fingers, and bowed her head,
She said I'm late, and I'm really scared,
She said you can go, but I hope you stay,
I'm gonna keep it, either way

In my daddy's El Camino,
In her driveway in the rain,
Starrin' through that windshield I could see my future change,
And my heart hit like a hammer,
And my thoughts were runnin' wild,
Any fool can make a baby, but it takes a man, to raise a child.

I laid my head, down on the wheel,
She said I know, I know, it don't seem real,
She closed her eyes, but the tears flowed through,
She said don't hate me, for lovin' you

In my daddy's El Camino,
In her driveway in the rain,
Starrin' through that windshield I could see my future change,
And my heart hit like a hammer,
And my thoughts were runnin' wild,
Any fool can make a baby, but it takes a man, to raise a child.

Oh I could not reassure her,
I couldn't say what I had planned,
Couldn't put three words together,
So I just, took her hand

In my daddy's El Camino,
In her driveway in the rain,
Starrin' through that windshield I could see my future change,
And my heart hit like a hammer,
And my thoughts were runnin' wild,
Any fool can make a baby, but it takes a man, to raise a child.
