John Entwistle – Big Black Cadillac lyrics

(J. Entwistle)
Track Music, Inc.

I was walking down the sidewalk
With my coat strung over my back
When a car pulled up beside me
A big black Cadillac
A man said, son have you seen a man with a gun
He's got a scar across his eye
Looks a little like me, a real mean one

I said, sir I ain't seen nothing
I ain't seen nothing at all
I said, sir I ain't seen nothing
I ain't seen nothing at all

He said, son if you're lying
You'll never leave this town alive
Gonna fit you concrete overshoes
And you're gonna take a dive

(Drum solo)

The car pulled away and I ran off
So afraid I wanted to cry
When a man jumped out of the doorway
He had a scar across his eye
He said, son have you seen a big black Cadillac
With a man in the front looks a bit like me
And two more in the back

I said, sir I ain't seen nothing
I ain't seen nothing at all
I said, sir I ain't seen nothing
I ain't seen nothing at all

He said, son if you're lying
You'll never leave this town
Wherever you run, I'll find you
And then I'll gun you down

(Bass Solo)

He ran one way and I ran the other
Nearly bit clean through my lip
When I bumped into a policeman
With a six-gun on his hip
He said, son have you seen a big black Cadillac
With one man in the front and two more in the back
Or a man with a scar

I said, I ain't seen nothing
I ain't seen nothing at all
I said, stop I ain't seen nothing
I ain't seen nothing at all
I said, stop I ain't seen nothing
I ain't seen nothing at all
I said, stop I ain't seen nothing
I don't want to get involved
