Tell me which lyric from Miranda Lambert’s ‘Automatic’ makes you feel the most nostalgic and you could win a prize

Shares

This contest is now closed with Kathie being our winner. Thank you everyone who entered! Keep watching for another great contest from NashvilleGab.

Miranda Lambert's new single Automatic (iTunes) brings back all kinds of nostalgic memories for me and many other fans, but it's hard to pick just one that brings back the best memory.

For me it would probably have to be the sun tea in the window. My grandmother always had a huge jar with sun tea sparkling in the window. Good times. Good times. 

Which lyric in the song brings back the fondest memories for you? Tell me in the comments and I will randomly pick a winner on Monday who will get to pick a prize from the prize vault

Lyrics after the jump … 

Automatic lyrics

Quarter in a payphone
Drying laundry on the line
Watching Sun Tea in the window
Pocket watch tellin' time
Seems like only yesterday I'd get a blank cassette
Record the country countdown 'cause I couldn't buy it yet

If we drove all the way to Dallas just to buy an Easter dress
We’d take along a Rand McNally, stand in line to pay for gas
God knows that shifting gears ain’t what it used to be
I learned to drive that 55 just like a queen, three on a tree

Hey, whatever happened to waitin' your turn
Doing it all by hand,
'Cause when everything is handed to you
It's only worth as much as the time put in
It all just seemed so good the way we had it
Back before everything became automatic

If you had something to say
You'd write it on a piece of paper
Then you'd put a stamp on it
And they'd get it three days later
Boys would call the girls
And girls would turn them down
Staying married was the only way to work your problems out

Hey, whatever happened to waitin' your turn
Doing it all by hand,
'Cause when everything is handed to you
It's only worth as much as the time put in
It all just seemed so good the way we had it
Back before everything became automatic

Automatic

Let's pull the windows down
Windows with the cranks
Come on let's take a picture
The kind you gotta shake

Hey, whatever happened to waitin' your turn
Doing it all by hand,
'Cause when everything is handed to you
It's only worth as much as the time put in
It all just seemed so good the way we had it
Back before everything became, automatic

    I love taking pictures, and it was always fun waiting for the polaroids to develop to see how the picture had come out!
