My Ford Ranger

Nov 16 , 2016

Levi and I have a a lot of fun on the morning show, and one of the beautiful things about it is the random inspirations we sometimes get.

This morning for example. We came on at 6:20 to talk about who the highest paid celebrities of 2016 were, concluded we were in the wrong industry and needed to become the next big country duet.

Off-air:

Me: Let's write a song for our next break.

Levi: Okay.

Me: Do you want it to be about a dog, a girl, or a truck?

Levi: Let's do the truck.

Me: Deal. Let's write it about the Ranger.

Levi: What should we say about it?

My Ford Ranger
By: Meredith Kerr and Levi Charest

Ain't got no winter tires
Just new all season treads
Sandbags in the back
And the radio turned on

Chorus:
My Ford Ranger
My Ford Ranger

Power windows broken
Power steering too
But who cares about all that
If the brakes are shiny new

Chorus:
My Ford Ranger
My Ford Ranger

I drive it all around
My four stoplight town
Groceries at the Co-op and
Chinese takeout in the cab

Chorus:
My Ford Ranger
My Ford Ranger

The song debuted at 6:40 with the question to listeners being what we should call our band, and by the time we got to 8 o'clock not only did we have a number of suggestions for the band name, but we also had a second track featuring Mary-Anne to put on the eventual CD.

You can hear the whole exchange here.
