Motor City Steel

Album: Why You So Crazy (2019)
  • Oh my Lord, you could drive a Ford
    Or you could drive a Chevy
    Or a Jimmy if you really like
    A mountain of fun, the USA 1
    A Motor City Steel
    You gotta give the power to the people

    Travis and Ricky relationship is tricky
    But Ricky is a girl who wants to see the world
    But Travis is a boy, boys like a toy
    A Ram with a straight axle way off the board
    Singin'

    Oh my Lord, you could drive a Ford
    Or you could drive a Chevy
    Or a Jimmy if you really like
    A mountain of fun, the USA 1
    A Motor City Steel
    You gotta give the power to the people

    At the country dance, wearin' tiny pants
    Ricky's tellin' everyone how they was made in France
    And Travis thinks it's funny, dancin' with his honey
    Talkin' 'bout how tiny French pants cost so much money

    Alright, now this here's a sad and weepy part of the story
    'Cause, well, Ricky's a good girl
    She worked hard, she saved up her money
    She bought herself a stack of American Express Travelers Cheques
    And a one-way ticket to Charlie de Gaulle Paris International Airport
    And then she told Travis
    "Honey, I ain't goin' for good, I'm just goin"'
    Day she had to fly, said she wouldn't cry
    Travis cried a little, he was caught in the middle
    Of a girl with a dream since she was a teen
    A boy and a truck
    "Darlin', good luck"

    Oh my Lord, you could drive a Ford
    Or you could drive a Chevy
    Or a Jimmy if you really like
    A mountain of fun, a USA 1
    A Motor City Steel
    You gotta give the power to the

    Oh my Lord, you could drive a Ford
    Or you could drive a Chevy
    Or a Jimmy if you really like
    A mountain of fun, a USA 1
    A Motor City Steel
    You gotta give the power to the people Writer/s: Courtney Taylor-Taylor
