Hot Rod Lincoln chords
Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen

My pappy said, "Son, you're gonna' drive me to drinking
If you don't stop driving that Hot Rod Lincoln"

E A7 E B7

EHave you heard this story of the hot rod race
A7When Fords and Lincolns was setting the pace
EThat story is true, I'm here to say
B7 EI was driving that Model A
EIt's got a Lincoln motor and it's really souped up
A7That Model A body makes it look like a pup
EIt's got eight cylinders, uses them all
B7 EIt's got overdrive, just won't stall
EWith a 4-barrel carb and a dual exhaust
A7With 4.11 gears you can really get lost
EIt's got safety tubes, but I ain't scared
B7 EThe brakes are good, tires fair
EPulled out of San Pedro late one night
A7The moon and the stars was shining bright
EWe was driving up Grapevine Hill
B7 EPassing cars like they was standing still
E A7 E B7
EAll of a sudden in a wink of an eye
A7A Cadillac sedan passed us by
EI said, "Boys, that's a mark for me"
B7 EBy then the tail light was all you could see
ENow the fellas was ribbing me for being behind
A7So I thought I'd make the Lincoln unwind
E Took my foot off the gas and man alive
B7 EI shoved it on down into overdrive
EWound it up to a hundred-and-ten
A7My speedometer said that I hit top end
EMy foot was glued like lead to the floor
B7 EThat's all there is and there ain't no more
ENow the boys all thought I'd lost my sense
A7And telephone poles looked like a picket fence
EThey said, "Slow down! I see spots!
B7 EThe lines on the road just look like dots"
ETook a corner, sideswiped a truck
A7Crossed my fingers just for luck
EMy fenders was clicking the guardrail posts
B7 EThe guy beside me was white as a ghost
E A7 E B7
ESmoke was coming from out of the back
A7When I started to gain on that Cadillac
EKnew I could catch him, I thought I could pass
B7 EDon't you know by then we'd be low on gas
EWe had flames coming from out of the side
A7Feel the tension, man, what a ride!
EI said, "Look out, boys, I've got a license to fly"
B7 EAnd that Caddy pulled over and let us by
ENow all of a sudden she started to knocking
A7And down in the dips she started to rocking
EI looked in my mirror; a red light was blinking
B7 EThe cops was after my hot rod Lincoln
EThey arrested me and they put me in jail
A7And called my pappy to throw my bail
EAnd he said, "Son, you're gonna' drive me to drinking
B7 EIf you don't stop driving that hot, rod, Lincoln!"
E A7 E B7 Set8
