Lyrics

Maybellene, why can't you be true Oh Maybellene, why can't you be true You done started doing The things you used to do

As I was motivating over the hill I saw Maybellene in a Coup De Ville A Cadillac a-rolling on the open road Nothing outrun my V8 Ford Cadillac doing 'bout ninety-five She's bumper to bumper Rolling side by side [CHORUS] Maybellene, why can't you be true Oh Maybellene, why can't you be true You done started back doing The things you used to do The Cadillac pulled up a hundred and four The Ford got hot and wouldn't do no more It then got cloudy, it started to rain I tooted my horn for a passing lane The rain water blowing all under my hood I knew that was doing my motor good [repeat CHORUS 2x] The motor cooled down, the heat went down And that's when I heard that highway sound The Cadillac a-sitting like a ton of lead A hundred and ten a half a mile ahead Cadillac looking like it's sitting still And I caught Maybellene At the top of the hill [repeat CHORUS]
