White Cadillac (Ode To Ronnie Hawkins)

Album: Jubilation

This leg is long as a Georgia pine
Rollin' Mississippi levee on my mind today
But it's so far away
Sedan DeVille what a ride brand new
Four barrel wide open
But you better pull over boys
He's comin' on through
Headin' up north we're leavin' stills behind
The kids are wide-eyed
I know everybody wants to ride
Big white Cadillac
I hope somebody's got my back, boy
Wheels burnin' on the rim
Cause we're closin' in
We're gonna rock this town again

Red knuckles smashin' on them rockin' 88's
Strings breakin', sticks flyin' every which a way
Man ain't that something
The big doghouse thumpin'
Camel walk, back flip, mohair what a touch
Who needs the King thank you
Thank you very much
Ain't Yonge Street lucky
I know they are in Memphis and Kentucky
But Little Rock, Newport, Oklahoma, New York
The kids are wide-eyed
I know everybody wants to ride
Big white Cadillac
I hope somebody's got my back, boy
Wheels burnin' on the rim
Cause we're closin' in
We're gonna rock this town again
Big white Cadillac
I hope somebody's got my back, boy
Wheels burnin' on the rim
Cause we're closin' in
We're gonna rock this town again

Oh my my
It looks like the fix is in
The trap is set, the secret's kept
The fire's burnin'
The wheels are turnin'
We got to go before the smoke starts clearin'

Big white Cadillac
I hope somebody's got my back, boy
Wheels burnin' on the rim
Cause we're closin' in
We're gonna rock this town again
Big white Cadillac
I hope somebody's got my back, boy
Wheels burnin' on the rim
Cause we're closin' in
Big white Cadillac
Big white Cadillac
Big white Cadillac
