[Verse 1]
                A                                          D
                Said Red Molly to James that's a fine motorbike,
                D                                     A
                A girl could feel special on any such like
                A                                             D
                Said James to Red Molly, well my hat's off to you
                D                                  A
                It's a Vincent Black Lightning, 1952
                A        E                           D        A
                And I've seen you at the corners and cafes it seems
                E                              D                A
                Red hair and black leather, my favourite colour scheme
                A      Bm              D                                 A
                And he pulled her on behind and down to Boxhill they did ride

[Verse 2]
                A                                                     D
                Said James to Red Molly, here's a ring for your right hand
                D                                            A
                But I'll tell you in earnest I'm a dangerous man
                A                                         D
                I've fought with the law since I was seventeen
                D                                        A
                I robbed many a man to get my Vincent machine
                E                         D     A
                Now I'm 21 years, I might make 22
                E                           D               A
                And I don't mind dying, but for the love of you
                A      Bm                   D
                And If fate should break my stride
                D                           A
                I'll give you my Vincent to ride

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

[Verse 4]
                Said young James. in my opinion, there's nothing in this world
                Beats a 52 Vincent and a red headed girl
                Now Nortons and Indians and Greeves won't do
                They don't have a soul like a Vincent 52
                He reached for her hand and he gave her the keys
                He said I don't have any further use for these
                I see angels and ariels in leather and chrome
                Swooping down from heaven to carry me home
                He gave her one last kiss and died
                And he gave her his Vincent to ride.
