Standard guitar tuning:EADGBENo capo
E A7 E B7EHave you heard this story of the hot rod race When A7Fords and Lincolns was setting the pace That Estory is true, I'm here to say B7I was driving that Model EA It's got a ELincoln motor and it's really souped up That A7Model A body makes it look like a pup It's got Eeight cylinders, uses them all It's got B7overdrive, just won't Estall With a E4-barrel carb and a dual exhaust With A74.11 gears you can really get lost It's got Esafety tubes, but I ain't scared The B7brakes are good, tires Efair EPulled out of San Pedro late one night The A7moon and the stars was shining bright We was Edriving up Grapevine Hill B7Passing cars like they was standing Estill
E A7 E B7EAll of a sudden in a wink of an eye A A7Cadillac sedan passed us by I said, "EBoys, that's a mark for me" By B7then the tail light was all you could Esee Now the Efellas was ribbing me for being behind So I A7thought I'd make the Lincoln unwind Took my Efoot off the gas and man alive I B7shoved it on down into overEdrive EWound it up to a hundred-and-ten My A7speedometer said that I hit top end My Efoot was glued like lead to the floor That's B7all there is and there ain't no Emore ENow the boys all thought I'd lost my sense And A7telephone poles looked like a picket fence They Esaid, "Slow down! I see spots! The B7lines on the road just look like Edots" ETook a corner, sideswiped a truck A7Crossed my fingers just for luck My Efenders was clicking the guardrail posts The B7guy beside me was white as a Eghost
E A7 E B7ESmoke was coming from out of the back When I A7started to gain on that Cadillac EKnew I could catch him, I thought I could pass Don't you B7know by then we'd be low on Egas We had Eflames coming from out of the side Feel the A7tension, man, what a ride! I said, "ELook out, boys, I've got a license to fly" And that B7Caddy pulled over and let us Eby ENow all of a sudden she started to knocking And A7down in the dips she started to rocking I Elooked in my mirror; a red light was blinking The B7cops was after my hot rod ELincoln EThey arrested me and they put me in jail And A7called my pappy to throw my bail And he Esaid, "Son, you're gonna' drive me to drinking If you B7don't stop driving that hot, rod, ELincoln!"
