I've been driving in my Indian Car,
To the pound of the wheels drumming in my brain,
My dash is dusty, my plates are expired,
Please Mr. Officer, let me explain,
I've got to make it to a Pow-Wow tonight,
I'll be singing 49, down by the river side,
Looking for a sugar, riding in my Indian Car,
Got my T-Bird in the glove-box,
I ain't got no spare,
Got a feather from an eagle,
I ain't got no care,
The road is empty,
As my bottle of desire,
Daylight is breaking,
The sun touches fire,
I've got to make another Pow-Wow tonight,
I'll be singing 49, down by the river side,
Looking for a sugar, riding in my Indian Car,
My car is dented,
The radiator steams,
One headlight don't work,
But the radio can scream,
I got a sticker,
It say's "Indian Power",
I stuck it on my bumper,
That's what holds my car together,
Were on the circuit of an Indian dream,
We don't get old,
We just get younger,
When were flying down the highway,
Riding in our Indian Cars,
Were on the circuit of an Indian dream,
We don't get old,
We just get younger,
When were flying down the highway,
Riding in our Indian Cars,
Riding in our Indian Cars,
Riding in our Indian Cars

    An old car which is jammed full of family, friends and hitch hikers; cracks in the windshield; dents in the body; duct tape to hold it together; and plain dirty - ah, the reality of not needing material things to be happy, just a vehicle to get you to the pow wow and back :)

    Pure fun. I'm a whitey of german descent and i can relate perfecly well as i am too an american. I drive a jalopy as well(98 buick skylark). As a kraut, perhaps i will write a song. "riding in my king tiger ii. " "the vastly superior fm radio is blasting orders from the fuerher, the gyroscopically stabilised 88mm. Is perfectly on, riding in my king tigerii"
