Burn up that quarter mile
Just tuned my car, now she really peels
A-lookin real tough with chrome reverse wheels
A Blue Coral wax job sure looks pretty
Gonna get my chick and make it out to Drag City


I'm goin to Drag City
Goin to Drag City
Goin to Drag City
Goin to Drag City
Burn up that quarter mile

The DJs sayin on my favorite station
The Drag City races are the fastest in the nation
The rails are the wildest and the stockers are pretty
I'll get my honey, grab some money, split to Drag City

Round the dragway thick exhaust fills the air
The final teams tachin up and action everywhere
Checkered flags, wheelstands, sure sounds pretty
To hear the cheers, bring your ears out to Drag City


Well, I'm goin to Drag City
Goin to Drag City
Goin to Drag City
Goin to Drag City
Burn up that quarter mile
Burn up that quarter mile

Listen to em whine

    Some other mistakes with these lyrics are found in the chorus. It should say "Yeah I'm going to Drag City, runnin' her through now. Going to Drag City, what'll she do now? Going to Drag City running her through now, Going to Drag City, what'll she do now? Burning up that quarter mile" Please do your research before publishing something you know nothing about. I spent the entire decades of the 1960's at the dragways and know the lingo in this song well.

    Some of the lyrics in the final verse are wrong. Here are the CORRECT lyrics. "Burnin' rubber thick exhaust fills the air. Final tunes, tachin' up and action everywhere. Checkered flags, wheel stands sure sounds pretty. To hear the cheers ring your ears out at Drag City...."

    It is all about heading out to the drags and running what you brought. I drag race, when i am loading up i still get the jitters probably always will. That's what this song is about.
