George Hamilton Iv – Candy Apple Red lyrics

He came speeding through the town each day at sundown
And his car was painted candy apple red
He was coming there to see the sheriff's daughter
And the sheriff didn't know it so they said
Time and time again the sheriff tried to catch him
But he always speeded up and got away
The old county jail stood patiently awaiting
And the sheriff vowed he'd put him there some day
Well there goes candy apple red that's what the people said
If he doesn't slow it down a bit he's gonna end up dead
And the sheriff's daughter said she'd rather end up dead
Than to live without her candy apple red

So the sheriff built a barricade to catch him
And he sat there at the limits of the town
But the sheriff's daughter had already met him
And had married him before the sun went down
When the sheriff saw the coming down the highway
He saw they couldn't stop and so he held his breath
As they crashed the barricade the car exploded
And the boy and girl went to a flaming death
Well there goes candy apple red that's what the people said
He didn't slow it down at all and he lies there dead
Now the sheriff bowed his head his daughter laied there dead
There in the arms of candy apple red
