George Jones - Maybelline lyrics

Oh Maybellene, why can't you be true
Oh Maybellene, why can't you be true
You've started back doin'
The things you used to do

As I was motivatin' over the hill
I saw Maybellene in a Coupe DeVille
Cadillac rollin' on an open road
But nothin' outrun my V8 Ford
Cadillac doin' about ninety-five
Bumper to bumper, rollin' side to side

Oh Maybellene, why can't you be true
Oh Maybellene, 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 passing lane
The rainwater poured up under my motor hood
I knew that wern't doin' my motor good

Oh Maybellene, why can't you be true
Oh Maybellene, why can't you be true
You've started back doin'
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
Cadillac lookin' like a ton of lead
A hundred and ten, a half a mile ahead
Cadillac lookin' like it's sittin' still
I caught Maybellene at the top of the hill

Oh Maybellene, why can't you be true
Oh Maybellene, why can't you be true
You've started back doin'
The things you used to do

Oh Maybellene, why can't you be true
Oh Maybellene, why can't you be true
You've started back doin'
The things you used to do
