The Allman Brothers Band – No Money Down lyrics

As I was motivating back towards town
I seen a Cadillac sign, it said no money down
So I eased on the brake, and I pulled up there in the drive
I gunned up the motor and then I walked on inside
The dealer came down and said man trade that Ford
I can put you in a car that will eat up the road
Now you just tell me what you want
And then sign on this line
I'll have it brought right to your house
In about an hour's time

I'm gonna get me a car
And I'm gonna head on down the road
Ain't gonna have to worry no more
Bout that broke down raggity Ford

Well mister I want a yellow convertible a four door deville
Man I want a continnetial spare and some white chrome wheels
And power steering and uh a power brakes
And a powerful motor with a jet off take
Some nice cool air condition and some nice warm heat
And a big old feather bedroom pillow in the back seat
I want a ship to shore radio a colour tv and a phone
So I can talk to my honey while I'm riding alone

I wanna get me a car yeah
And head on down the road
I don't have to worry no more
Bout that broke down raggity Ford

And also I want four carburetors and I want two straight exhaust
I want a nuclear reactor and I don't care what it cost
I want a railroad air horn I want a phycadellic strobe spot
And I want a 15 year guarantee on everything that I got
I want a two dollar deductible and I want a 20 dollar note
I want a 150, 000 dollars liability and that's all she wrote

I gonna get me a car
And head on down the road
I don't wanna have to worry no more
Bout that broke down raggity Ford
