         G                                        C                                                G
Said Red Molly    to James    That's a fine  motorbike     A girl could feel special on any  Such  Like
     G                                        C                                            G
Says James   to Red Molly   My hat's off to  You      That's a Vincent Black Lightning  1952
         D                             C        G          D                          C                G
And I've seen you at the corners  and cafes  it seems  Red hair and black leather  my favorite  color  scheme
       Am               C                                           G
And he pulled   her on behind        and down to Boxhill   they did ride

     G                                                   C                                                  G
Said James   to Red Molly   Here's a ring for your right hand  But I'll tell you in earnest I'm a dangerous man
         G                                      C                                                G
For I've fought with the law since I was  seventeen     I robbed many a man to get my Vincent machine
        D                        C     G        D                     C                G
Now I'm 21 years old I might not make 22       Don't mind dying   but for the love of you
       Am                    C                                             G
And if fate should break my stride        Then I'll give you my Vincent to ride

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

     G                                            C                                           G
Said James In my opinion there's nothing in this world    Beats a 52 Vincent and a red headed girl
    G                                       C                                                G
No  Nortons and Indians and Greeves's won't do        They don't have a soul like a Vincent 52
       D                            C              G                D             C       G
And he reached for her hand and he slipped her the keys   Said I've got no further use of these             
      D                   C             G              D                           C        G
I see angels on Ariels in leather and chrome          Swooping down from heaven to carry me home
           Am                C          C
    And he gave her one last kiss   and died
       C                         C                          G       
And he gave her              his Vincent                 to ride
