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

E
Have you heard this story of the hot rod race
     A7
When Fords and Lincolns was setting the pace
     E
That story is true, I'm here to say
B7                       E
I was driving that Model A

           E
It's got a Lincoln motor and it's really souped up
     A7
That Model A body makes it look like a pup
         E
It's got eight cylinders, uses them all
         B7                    E
It's got overdrive, just won't stall

       E
With a 4-barrel carb and a dual exhaust
     A7
With 4.11 gears you can really get lost
         E
It's got safety tubes, but I ain't scared
    B7                     E
The brakes are good, tires fair

E
Pulled out of San Pedro late one night
    A7
The moon and the stars was shining bright
       E
We was driving up Grapevine Hill
B7                                  E
Passing cars like they was standing still

E A7 E B7

E
All of a sudden in a wink of an eye
  A7
A Cadillac sedan passed us by
         E
I said, "Boys, that's a mark for me"
   B7                                    E
By then the tail light was all you could see


        E
Now the fellas was ribbing me for being behind
     A7
So I thought I'd make the Lincoln unwind
        E        
Took my foot off the gas and man alive
  B7                         E
I shoved it on down into overdrive

E
Wound it up to a hundred-and-ten
   A7
My speedometer said that I hit top end
   E
My foot was glued like lead to the floor
       B7                              E
That's all there is and there ain't no more

E
Now the boys all thought I'd lost my sense
    A7
And telephone poles looked like a picket fence
     E
They said, "Slow down! I see spots!
    B7                               E
The lines on the road just look like dots"

E
Took a corner, sideswiped a truck
A7
Crossed my fingers just for luck
   E
My fenders was clicking the guardrail posts
    B7                           E
The guy beside me was white as a ghost

E A7 E B7

E
Smoke was coming from out of the back
       A7
When I started to gain on that Cadillac
E
Knew I could catch him, I thought I could pass
          B7                          E
Don't you know by then we'd be low on gas

       E
We had flames coming from out of the side
         A7
Feel the tension, man, what a ride!
         E
I said, "Look out, boys, I've got a license to fly"
         B7                           E
And that Caddy pulled over and let us by

E
Now all of a sudden she started to knocking
    A7
And down in the dips she started to rocking
  E
I looked in my mirror; a red light was blinking

    B7                        E
The cops was after my hot rod Lincoln

E
They arrested me and they put me in jail
    A7
And called my pappy to throw my bail
       E
And he said, "Son, you're gonna' drive me to drinking
       B7                                E
If you don't stop driving that hot, rod, Lincoln!"

E A7 E B7
