dark green eldorado

Dark Green Eldorado
brings me back
1978
you’d pick me up
after workin’ late
and we’d drive
to the lake and park


Dark Green Eldorado
talkin’ ’bout
our plans and dreams
making out like
movie scenes
in the belly of a great
green whale.

Dark Green Eldorado
a tank of gas
would get you
to the corner store
dig for change
in the seats and floor
that’s all you’d need
to fill ‘er up.

Dark Green Eldorado
bench seats for sitting
shoulder to shoulder
long before
dvd’s and cupholders
ashtrays with lighters
kept the kids entertained

Dark Green Eldorado
miles of pearl white
leather interior
made me feel
so much more superior
than my friends
in their compact cars

Dark Green Eldorado
now you’re sitting in
the dead car lot
been thinking of you
quite a lot
and my plans
to bring you home.

Dark Green Eldorado
gonna bring you to
your former glory
gonna tell my kids
about your story.
from the belly of a great
green whale.

  1. Felt the same about my grandpa's 5O's DeSoto–green, too, with a white interior and fascinating forbidden huge glowing cigarette lighter. A great resurrection in this piece even if she never sits in the driveway.

  2. Aww..that's such a lovely tribute to an awesome set of wheels! Old really is gold, isn't it?! I vote for bringing it back to its glory.. and soon too!! :)Best luck, Rene!!And kudos on this sweet, memory-filled one shot!!
