Studebaker Ponderosa

Uncle Russell had a color TV / the first one in the family

he lived in Santa Ana  ‘neath an acorn tree / Uncle Russell had a color TV

my Dad drove a green Studebaker / we’d drive to Uncle Russell’s through orange grove acres

past the Crow’s Nest bar and a church full of Quakers / my dad drove a green Studebaker

we’d watch Bonanza, eating apple pie / check out the blue in that Ponderosa sky!

Mom likes Hoss, he’s a likable guy / we’d watch Bonanza, eating apple pie

Studebaker Ponderosa / Studebaker Ponderosa

in Summertime Bonanza was re-runs / we’d drive to the beach and have a lot of fun

roast hot-dogs and stick ’em in buns / a green Studebaker and a setting sun

my Dad traded that Studebaker in / on a Plymouth Wagon with tall tail fins

now we’re into color TVs up to our chins / my Dad traded that Studebaker in
