Lincoln Continentals and Cadillacs

Album: Sundown Heaven Town (2014)
  • I said is that you in that old picture back behind the bar
    Leaning up against that classic car
    Sure look cool, man, in your three piece with your snake skin boots
    Hey that sure is cute
    Little honey, sitting in the front seat
    Touching up her lipstick with her hoop silver earrings
    He said damn right I hung it there 'cause boy she takes me back
    To the days with Lincoln Continentals and Cadillacs

    She was a queen of the red white and bell bottom blues
    Back in the she'd write her number on a matchbook days
    When you'd take her out for a drink and then you'd walk her back
    To your Lincoln Continental or your Cadillac
    She looks so good, cruising up and down
    This don't take no shit from no one all-American downtown
    Main street all lined up with shiny and black
    Lincoln Continentals and Cadillacs

    He said that sweet girl, she moved on when as time slowed down
    But I just kept on hanging around
    And that sweet ride cost me too much when the town dried up
    Let the bank take it back, paid in cash
    For that old Ford truck sitting right out front
    And this picture's all I have left of
    And I always thought she would have but she never came back
    No, she never came back

    And I did so miss that queen of the red white and bell bottom blues
    Back in the she'd write her number on a matchbook days
    When you'd take her out for a drink and then you'd walk her back
    To your Lincoln Continental or your Cadillac
    She looks so good, cruising up and down
    This don't take no shit from no one all-American downtown
    Main street laying down that hard earned cash on them
    Lincoln Continentals and Cadillacs

    She looks so damn good, cruising up and down
    This don't take no shit from no one all-American downtown
    Main street all lined up with shiny and black
    Lincoln Continentals and Cadillacs
    Yeah the best times are the good times that you can't get back
    Like those Lincoln Continentals and the Cadillacs Writer/s: LUKE ROBERT LAIRD, RODNEY DALE CLAWSON
