Hot Rod Lincoln LyricsArtist: Kenny Price
Album: You Almost Slipped My Mind
My pappy said you're gonna drive me to drinkin'
If you don't stop drivin' that hot rod Lincoln<BR>
Now you've heard the story of the hot-rod race
When the Ford and Lincoln was settin' the pace
That story is true I'm here to say cause I was a drivin' that Model-A
Got a Lincoln motor and it's really souped up
And that Model-A body makes it look like a pup
Got eight cylinders'n uses them all got overdrive that just won't stall
Got a four-barrel carb and dual exhaust 4-11 gears it can really get lost
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
Drivin' up your Grapevine hill we was passin' cars like they was standin' still
[ guitar ]
Now all of a sudden like the wink of an eye a Cadillac sedan passed us by
I said boys this is a remark for me the taillight was all you could see
Well the fellers ribbed me for bein' behind
So I thought I'd make that old Lincoln unwind
Took my foot off the gas and man alive I shoved it down into overdrive
Well I wound her up to a hundred and ten my speedometer cable hit the end
My foot keyed clear to the floor said that's all there is there ain't no more
Now boys they'd thought I'd lost my sense
The telephone poles looked like a picket fence
Said slow down I see spots the lines on the road they looked like dots
Went around a corner and I passed a truck I crossed my fingers just for luck
My fenders clickin' a guardrail post'n guys beside me white as a ghost
[ guitar ]
Well smoke was comin' 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 outta gas
Went around a corner the tires on the side you could feel the tension man what a ride
I said hold on I got a license to fly and the Cadillac pulled over and let me by
Now all of a sudden the rods started knockin' down in the dip it started rockin'
I looked in the mirror the red lights was blinkin' the cops was after my hot rod Lincoln
They arrested me and put me in jail I called my pop to go my bail
He said son you're gonna drive me to drinkin'
If you don't stop drivin' that hot rod Lincoln
