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

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