"Car Man"
by: Rick Landers (c) 2017

Car Man said he can make me a deal
He's got a big Cadillac with one loose wheel
So, I take a Polaroid to show my mom
Just how far her boy has come

And I'm headed south out of L.A.
I've got a bag of chips and Frito-Lays
and the weatherman says that it's threatening rain
speed traps rolling by again and again

I'm wearing shades
She's wearing a new blue dress
I'm wearing shades
Her hair's a mess

The outside temperature's a hundred and five
She said we'd be lucky to get out a live
We stop in a bar, we chug too many drinks
And I left my breakfast in the bathroom sink

I'm wearing shades
She's wearing her low cut dress
I'm wearing shades
She's wearing more or less

My radio's blasting old time rock 'n roll
My heart's full of metal
Her heart's full of soul
And we look in the mirror
blue lights behind
And we're running on empty to the border line

(instrumental lead)

Now the outside temperature's a hundred and ten
We do a bat turn we're headed North again
I cry, cry, cry like the Man in Black
If we never get a break
We'll never get back

I'm wearing shades
She's wearing her new blue dress
I'm wearing shades
Her hair's a mess

Now we're crashing through those Pearly Gates
One split second we would have been late
St. Peter looks at me and he throws me back
Cuz all he wanted was my Cadillac

I'm wearing shades
She's wearing her new white dress
I'm wearing shades
Time to confess
We confess
We confess!
