Lyrics
Three Left Turns


Verse 1:
In my Grandpa's baby blue Chevy, time stopped at 4 o'clock
He always took the long way home, from my school parking lot
If we were going any slower we'd have been go'n in reverse
And he never took a short cut which made it even worse

I rolled my eyes at him and heard him say, let's take

Chorus:
Three left turns
Let's enjoy this ride
We'll get there, in our own time
Yeah, three left turns
And just slow down
With so much to see in this small town
You might be surprised at what you'll find
Three left turns are as good as a right

Verse 2:
Grandpa hung a left at Jimmy's Diner, he said I took this turn in '49
On the day I fell for Katie Miller when I stopped to change her tire
That's how I met your Grandma and now the rest is history
If it wasn't for that left turn you wouldn't be here with me

That's why I go the long way every day, so let's take

Chorus:
Three left turns
Let's enjoy this ride
We'll get there, in our own time
Yeah, three left turns
And just slow down
With so much to see in this small town
You might be surprised at who you'll find
Three left turns are as good as a right

Bridge:
And now we're head'n home
After laying Grandpa to rest
My wife & I come to a stop sign
And I say, I learned this from the best

Chorus:
Three left turns
Let's enjoy this ride
We'll get there, in our own time
Yeah, three left turns
It's the longer way
But life is a road and not a place
You might be surprised at what we'll find
Three left turns, three left turns
Three left turns are as good as a right
