Hot Rod Lincoln

All Songs for Artist








 A one hit wonder from 1960


 Now you've heard the story of the hot rod race
When the Fords and the Mercury was setting the pace
That story is true, I'm here to say, 'cause I was driving that Model A

She's got a Lincoln motor, and it's really souped up
That Model A body makes it look like a pup
It's got eight cylinders and uses them all, with an overdrive, that just won't stall

Got a 4-barrel carb and a dual exhaust, with 4.11 gears you can really get lost
It's got safety tubes and I'm not scared, the brakes are good, and the tires are fair

We left San Pedro late one night, the moon and the stars was shining bright
Everything went fine up at Grapevine Hill
We was passing cars like they was standing still

Then all of a sudden, like the flick of an eye, a Cadillac sedan passed us by
The remark was made, that's the car for me, by then the tail light was all you could see

Well, the fellas ribbed me for being behind, so I started to make that Lincoln unwind
Took my foot off the gas and man alive, I shoved it on down into overdrive

Well, I wound it up to a hundred and ten, twisted the speedometer cable right off the end
Had my foot glued right to the floor, I said, that's all there is there ain't no more

Went around a corner and passed a truck, I crossed my fingers just for luck
The fenders clicking, the guard rail post, the guy beside me, white as a ghost

I guess they thought I'd lost my sense, the telephone poles looked like a picket fence
Said, slow down, I see spots, the lines in the road they just look like dots

Smoke was rolling outta the back, when I started to gain on that Cadillac
I knew I could catch him, and hoped I could pass, but when I did, I'd be short on gas

Went around the corner with the tires on the side
You could feel the tension, man, what a ride
I said, hold on, I've got a license to fly, and the Cadillac pulled over and let me by

Then all of a sudden a rod started knocking, down in the depths, she started a rocking
I looked in the mirror and a red light was blinking, the cops was after my hot rod Lincoln

Well, they arrested me and they put me in jail, I called my pop, to go my bail
He said, son, you're gonna drive me to drinking
If you don't quit driving that hot rod Lincoln
