Johnny Rivers – Maybellene lyrics

As I was motivatin over the hill
I saw Maybellene in a coup de ville.
A Cadillac a-rollin on the open road,
Nothin will outrun my V8 Ford.
The cadillac doin bout ninety-five,
Shes bumper to bumber rollin side by side.

Maybellene, why can't you be true?
Oh Maybellene, why can't you be true?
Youve started back doing the things you used to do.

The Cadillac pulled up ahead of the Ford,
The Ford got hot and wouldn't do no more.
It then got clody and it started to rain,
I tooted my horn for a passin lane
The rain water blowin all under my hood,
I knew that was doin my motor good.

Maybellene, why can't you be true?
Oh Maybellene, why can't you be true?
Youve started back doing the things you used to do.

Well now the heat went down
and the motor cooled down
And that's when I heard that highway sound.
The Cadillac lookin' like a ton of lead
A hundred and ten a half a mile ahead.
The Cadillac lookin' like it's sittin still
I caught Maybellene at the top of the hill.

Maybellene, why can't you be true?
Oh Maybellene, why can't you be true?
You done started back doing the things you used to do.
