Holiday by James Mcmurtry Holiday lyrics The in-laws are waiting the games have begun The cell phone keeps ringing “don’t answer it hon” The whole thing’s arranged just to aggravate Dad And it’s amateur day on the old super slab The kids are strapped down like a half load of pipe All safe in their car seats they fuss and they gripe Well you can’t hardly blame ‘em it must be a bitchCounting the crosses off down in the ditch This one’s got flowers, this one’s got a wreath This one’s got a name painted down underneath Was the road all iced up, were they going too fast Here’s five in a circle left from the last holiday Holiday There’s a three-trailer rig just a throwin’ up spray Not legal to run on this kind of a day But god damn the smokies and the four wheelers too Stay offa my bumpers or the same goes for you There’ll be none for him He that wants it the most As he hauls it on out to the Oregon coast No turkey no gravy no Zinfandel wine You just stay over right and we’ll get along fine He’s missing the football, missing the fun He’d play with the grandkids but he’s off on a run And some hat’s on the radio singing his song But it don’t make a damn He’s in for a long holiday Holiday Now granny she’s yelling She’s ready to eat She’s havin’ conniptions ‘Cause they won’t take their seats But she’s got ‘em all gathered now under one roof With her camcorder loaded She’s gonna get proof But do you have to wear that Well I just don’t see why Please pass the potatoesAw eat shit and die Did you hear about Ellen, she’s leaving, you know How ‘bout those Packers, think it’ll snow? And the minute it’s over they’ll scatter like quail Off down the freeway in the teeth of a gale Silent and shattered And numb to the core They count themselves lucky They got through one more holiday Holiday The highway patrolman He stands in the rain He just lets it run down to soften the stain Of the blood on his pant leg From working that wreck And he won’t forget it In time for the next holiday Departing Chicago at 9:52 In clean desert camo all baggy and loose Sits an Iowa Guardsman alone by the gate The place sure looked different, in 1968 When he traveled with mom, first time on a plane To visit some kin, he’s forgotten their names But he remembers the soldiers, still in their teensIn their spit polished boots and their pressed army greens With the creases so sharp, and their faces so smooth But their eyes looked so heavy, he wondered how they could move Now he’s got that same look, like his insides are black He’s in his mid forties and he has to go backAnd he can’t even smoke while he waits for his plane The uniform’s different, but the mission remains To do like they tell you, don’t make a fuss Why’s not an issue, so don’t think too much You just do what you have to, shut up and drive If you come apart later, well at least you’re alive You can get you some help, you can deal with it then And life will be better, ‘til it happens again ‘Cause there’s something inside us that won’t let us beIn stalks through our days ‘til it’s too dark to see And it’s damn near as deadly as Texans on ice Lord don’t they beat all Y’all have a nice holiday
