Howlin' Wolf – Cadillac Daddy lyrics

Be careful what you're drivin, man
That Cadillac may get away, you better be careful

There standin the highway man
Standin parked on the road
There standin there highway man
Parked on the road
You better watch out for the red light
Just before you go

Green light says go
Red light says stop
Look-a-here boy
You better be on your watch
There's standin a highway man
Parked on the side of the road
You better be careful
Bout how you drive on the road

I love the Cadillac, long wreckin machine
I love a Cadillac, it's a long wreckin' machine
Me an my baby can ride it
Ev'rything is nice 'til then

I'll make a cool hundred
I ain't got time to stop for gas
I'll make a cool hundred
I ain't got time to stop for gas
I'm gonna drive this automobile
Just as long as the gas lasts
(Play it!)

Look-it-here man, please check this oil
Look-it here man, please check this oil
Just a long Cadillac, bound to try out your soil.
