This theme has so many possibilities! In fact, I have an entire CD devoted to transportation tunes, most of them about cars and driving (there’s a train and a boat floating around in the set too). It was hard to choose: Pink Cadillac, Double Life, One Headlight, Radar Love…
But I decided to go with an all-time classic.
HOT ROD LINCOLN
(Charlie Ryan / W.S. Stevenson)
Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen 1972; Asleep At the Wheel
My pappy said “Son, you’re gonna drive me to drinkin’,
if you don’t stop drivin’ that Hot Rod Lincoln.”
Have you heard the story of the hot rod race,
where the Fords ‘n’ Lincolns was settin’ the pace?
That story is true, I’m here to say,
that I was drivin’ that Model-A.
