Jim Henry - 1952 Vincent Black Lightning


CAPO: 2nd Fret



[Intro]
G

[Verse 1]
                                             C
Says Red Molly to James, "That's a fine motorbike
                                         G
Oh, a girl could feel special on any suchlike"
                                               C
Said James to Red Molly, "Well my hat's off to you
                                   G
It's a Vincent Black Lightning, 1952
         D                           C        G
And I've seen you at the corners and cafes it seems
D                              C                G
Red hair and black leather, my favourite colour scheme"
       Am              C
And he pulled her on behind
                              G
And down to Box Hill they did ride


[Verse 2]
                                                            C
Said James to Red Molly, "Well here's a ring for your right hand
                                                 G
Though I'll tell you in earnest, I'm a dangerous man
                                              C
For I've fought with the law since I was seventeen
                                            G
And I robbed many a man to get my Vincent machine
    D                                 C           G
And now I'm twenty-one years, I might make twenty-two
      D                     C               G
And I don't mind dying, but for the love of you
       Am                   C
And if fate should break my stride"
                                       G
He said, "I'll leave you my Vincent to ride"


[Verse 3]
                                                     C
"Come down, come down, Red Molly", called Sergeant McRae
                                                    G
"For they've taken young James Adie for armed robbery
                                            C
Shotgun blast hit his chest, left nothing inside
                                          G
Oh, come down, Red Molly, to his dying bedside"
         D                           C           G
When she came to the hospital, there wasn't much left
       D                           C              G
He was running out of road, he was running out of breath
       Am                C
But he smiled to see her cry
                                       G
He said, "I'll leave you my Vincent to ride"


[Verse 4]
                                                    C
Said James, "In my opinion, there's nothing in this world
                                     G
Beats a '52 Vincent and a red-headed girl
                                            C
Now Nortons and Indians and Greeveses won't do
                                            G
Oh, they don't have a soul like a Vincent '52"
   D                           C               G
He reached for her hand and he slipped her the keys
   D                          C       G
He says, "I've got no further use for these
      D                     C           G
I see angels on Ariels with leather and chrome
D                            C        G
Swooping down from heaven to carry me home"
       Am                         C
And he gave her one last kiss and died
                               G
And he gave her his Vincent to ride
