The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band - Cadillac Ranch lyrics

There she sits buddy just a gleamin' in the sun
There to greet a workin' man when his day is done
I'm gonna pack my pa, and I'm gonna pack my aunt
I'm gonna take 'em down to the Cadillac ranch

Eldorado fins, white walls and skirts;
Drives just like a little bit of heaven here on Earth
So when I die buddy throw my body in the back
Take me to the junkyard, in my Cadillac

Cadillac, Cadillac
Long and dark
Shiny and black
Open up your engines, let 'em roar
Tearin' up the highway like a big ol' dinosaur

James Dean in a Mercury '49
Junior Johnson's runnin' in the woods of Caroline
Even Burt Reynolds in a black Trans Am
All gonna meet down at the Cadillac ranch

Cadillac, Cadillac
Long and dark
Shiny and black
Open up your engines, let 'em roar
Tearin' up the highway like a big ol' dinosaur

Hey little girlie in the blue jeans so tight
Driving all alone in a Colorado night
You're my last love, baby you're my last chance
Don't let 'em take me down to the Cadillac ranch

Cadillac, Cadillac
Long and dark
Shiny and black
Open up your engines, let 'em roar
Tearin' up the highway like a big ol' dinosaur

Cadillac, Cadillac
Long and dark
Shiny and black
Open up your engines, let 'em roar
Tearin' up the highway like a big ol' dinosaur
