Johnny Rivers – Maybellene lyrics

As I was motovatin’ over the hill
I saw Maybelline in a Coup-de-Ville
A Cadillac a-rollin’ on the open road
But, nothin’ will outrun my V8 Ford
The Cadillac doin’ ‘bout ninety-five
Bumper-to-bumper rollin’ side-by-side

Maybelline, why can't you be true?
Oh Maybelline, why can't you be true?
(Why can’t you be true?)
You’ve started back doin’ the things you used to do

Well, the Cadillac pulled up ahead of the Ford
The Ford got hot and wouldn't do no more
It done got cloudy and started to rain
I tooted my horn for the passin’ lane
The rain water blowin’ up under my hood
I knew that doin’ my motor good

Maybelline, why can't you be true?
Oh Maybelline, why can't you be true?
You’ve started back doin’ the things you used to do
(Oh, yeah)

(Harmonica solo)

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 -mile ahead
The Cadillac lookin' like it's sittin’ still
I caught Maybelline at the top of the hill

Maybelline, why can't you be true?
Oh Maybelline, why can't you be true?
You done started back doin’ the things you used to do

(Yeah, more, c’mon, yeah more)
