Drive-by Truckers – Steve Mcqueen lyrics

Steve Mcqueen Steve Mcqueen
When I was a little boy I wanted to grow up to be
Steve Mcqueen Steve Mcqueen
The coolest doggone motherscratcher on the silver screen

I'd drive real fast everywhere no one would ever catch me
And I'd kick your ass if you pissed me off so be careful what you ask me
And I'd never have an empty bottle or an empty bed
And as cool as Paul Newman is I bet Steve could whup his head

Steve Mcqueen............................

Bullet was my favorite movie that I'd ever seen
I totaled my go-cart trying to imitate that chase scene
That Duster had six hubcaps, know what I mean
And I love the way they all flew off when it landed in that ravine

Steve Mcqueen............................

I really loved The Getaway back when I was eight
That pussy Alec Baldwin sucked in the remake
And speaking of pussy, I guess Steve got it all
He fucked Faye Dunaway and he fucked Ali Mcgraw

Steve Mcqueen Steve Mcqueen
When I was a little boy I wanted to grow up to be
Steve Mcqueen Steve Mcqueen
The coolest goddamn mothefucker on the silver screen

(suddenly the scene turns slow and somber, as a campfire harp plays in the background)
I went to see The Hunter on my first date
The Hunter was the last movie Steve Mcqueen lived to make
They took my drivers license when I was just sixteen
The year Mesothelioma killed Steve Mcqueen

Lyrics by Patterson Hood
Music by Drive-by Truckers (Cooley, Hood, Howell, Lane, Neff, Stacy)
