How Much Stuff

(Heidi Winzinger)
How much stuff could I pack in my car?
I’ve thought about this a thousand times
Love letters in the glove, box of books in the trunk
Garbage bag full of t-shirts, lyin’ on the back seat
Where we fell in love, on a moonlit night
Maybe it’s time?

Better take a bathing suit a beach towel and some lotion `
Just might drive to Pensacola if I get the notion
San Francisco Foggy days, steamy nights in Georgia
There are so many destinations and they’re calling me at once
Where should I go first?

How much stuff could I pack in my car?
I’ve thought about this a thousand times
Hairbrush and mouthwash, socks and pajamas
Blanket and pillow laid out on seat
Where I’ll sleep tonight, under starlight
Maybe it’s time?

The time is ripe for leavin’, oh these spinnin’ wheels keep tuggin’
On an broken heart and empty arms just ripe for highway huggin’
I ain’t been there and I ain’t done that, I’ll grab my keys and coat
Leave a good-bye letter by the door and that’ll be all she wrote


How much stuff could I pack in my car?
I’ve thought about this a thousand times
A camera and my guitar, notebook and a pencil
My muse and an angel, the lord and a Shepard
And a new address book
To keep track of all the friends I’ll meet along my way
Maybe it’s time?
