Confederate Railroad - Daddy Never Was The Cadillac Kind

I thought of this song last Monday as we rode in the procession from the funeral home to the cemetery. I think it describes both of my parents very well... they've never had a lot of money, but they've always tried to do their best by us.
I told Mama that Daddy would have been excited to know that he stopped traffic on the busiest road in Cordele and that police officers blocked intersections and stood at attention for him... an honor that people in most places outside of the South don't get to see.
My Daddy wasn't the cadillac kind, but I know he had to have enjoyed that last ride.
