Maybellene Lyrics

Maybellene, why can't you be true?
Oh Maybellene, why can't you be true?
Youve started back doing the things you used to do.

As I was motivatin over the hill
I saw Maybellene in a coup de ville.
A Cadillac a-rollin on the open road,
Nothin will outrun my V8 Ford.
The cadillac doin bout ninety-five,
Shes bumper to bumber rollin side by side.

Maybellene, why can't you be true?
Oh Maybellene, why can't you be true?
Youve started back doing the things you used to do.

Pink in the mirror on top of the hill,
Its just like swallowin up a medicine pill.
First thing I saw that Cadillac grille
Doin a hundred and ten gallopin over that hill.
Offhill curve, a downhill strecth,
Me and that Cadillac neck by neck.

Maybellene, why can't you be true?
Oh Maybellene, why can't you be true?
Youve started back doing the things you used to do.

The Cadillac pulled up ahead of the Ford,
The Ford got hot and wouldn't do no more.
It then got clody and it started to rain,
I tooted my horn for a passin lead
The rain water blowin all under my hood,
I knew that was doin my motor good.

Maybellene, why can't you be true?
Oh Maybellene, why can't you be true?
Youve started back doing the things you used to do.

The motor cooled down, the heat went down
And that's when I heard that highway sound.
The Cadillac a-sittin like a ton of lead
A hundred and ten a half a mile ahead.
The Cadillac lookin like it's sittin still
And I caught Maybellene at the top of the hill.

Maybellene, why can't you be true?
Oh Maybellene, why can't you be true?
Youve started back doing the things you used to do.
