Back Seat Blues

Back Seat Blues

Well they say ?write about what you know??.and my old Suburban died on me in Key West, Florida recently, and couldn?t be fixed.  But before driving to Florida, I had removed the 3rd row seat and put it in storage in NJ.  Now I live in NJ again, and all I got left is that old back seat.  I was also inspired by Buddy Guy?s ?It?s Cheaper to Keep Her?, man did he get that right!  Anyway, I?m not good at song structure(verse, chorus, intro, outro, bridge, etc), but I get the words down.  Any helpful comments would be much appreciated.  I'm sorry about the little embellishments((da na na nump?..), etc), its just the way I hear the song in my head.

Back Seat Blues ( Delta blues, slow, foot tap beat. Old school, buddy guy, ( eg. ?It?s cheaper to keep her?) )

Ohhhh, there?s plenty of room in my old car?s back seat  (da na na nump?..),
On certain days baby, it?s even got some heat. (da na na nump?..).
Oh I gotta view for miles in my old back seat?s place (da na na nump?..),
I got plenty to share too baby,
 with mooooorrrre than enough space (da na na nump?..),

Yeahhhahahaha, some girls will??.and some girls don?t?..
But when you got nothing but the old back seat?..most girls won?t ??
Ohhhhhhh, I used to have the car too, and life was pretty neat??
But now all I got baby, is this old back seat?.(da na na nump?..),

Got no worries honey, bout doors or them keys?..
Got no privacy neither, so everyone sees?.(da na na nump?..),
But when the sun goes down baby,?.and its dark outside?.(da na na nump?..),
Doesn?t matter much whatcha you tryin? to hide???

Ohhhh I took it to the river, and I took it over dat bridge?..(da na na nump?..),
I took it from the city out to where my granddaddy lived??.
And I can tell you honey?.no lies from this old guitar?..
I can take it anywhere??in the back of someone else?s car?..(da na na nump?..),

Yeahhhahahaha, some girls will??.and some girls don?t?..
But when you got nothing but the old back seat?..most girls won?t ??
Ohhhhhhh, I used to have the car too, and life was pretty neat??
But now all I got baby, is this old back seat?.(da na na nump?..),

Got no payments, and I got no fancy lease,
Got no license, or insurance needs.
Got no need to know the price of gas
Don?t know the mileage that this old seat has??
Don?t need no headlights, or horn to honk in traffic,
Its all weather proof too baby, cuz its all made of plastic.

Ohhhh this old seat?s been all over and around?.
It?s taking it easy now baby, with it?s feet on the ground.
I can?t say what another man said,
I can?t offer you no deluxe room or king sized bed.
But you can?t take away what?s already gone,
So my old seat?s what I got, no fancy cars in this song.

Just stop on by any old time,
The weather is warm and the fishn? is fine.
But don?t bother callin??.got no number or phone
That went with the car too, now folks just leave me alone.

I got room to my left, and more room to my right,
No windows to fog, but we?ll stay up all night?.
But don?t you be waiting too long cuz I?m getting older,
You can bring along your friend too, cuz I got no cup holder.
