ASaid Red Molly to James that's a fine motorDbike, DA girl could feel special on any such Alike ASaid James to Red Molly, well my hat's off to Dyou DIt's a Vincent Black Lightning, 195A2 AAnd I've Eseen you at the corners and Dcafes it Aseems ERed hair and black leather, my Dfavourite colour Ascheme AAnd he Bmpulled her on beDhind and down to Boxhill they did Aride ASaid James to Red Molly, here's a ring for your right Dhand DBut I'll tell you in earnest I'm a dangerous Aman AI've fought with the law since I was sevenDteen DI robbed many a man to get my Vincent macAhine ENow I'm 21 years, I might Dmake 2A2 EAnd I don't mind dying, but Dfor the love of Ayou AAnd If Bmfate should break my Dstride DI'll give you my Vincent to Aride Come down, come down, Red Molly, called Sergeant McRae For they've taken young James adie for armed robbery Shotgun blast hit his chest, left nothing inside Come down, Red Molly to his dying bedside When she came to the hospital, there wasn't much left He was running out of road, he was running out of breath But he smiled to see her cry Said I'll give you my Vincent to ride Said young James. in my opinion, there's nothing in this world Beats a 52 Vincent and a red headed girl Now Nortons and Indians and Greeves won't do They don't have a soul like a Vincent 52 He reached for her hand and he gave her the keys He said I don't have any further use for these I see angels and ariels in leather and chrome Swooping down from heaven to carry me home He gave her one last kiss and died And he gave her his Vincent to ride. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in the rain.
