Born Late '58

(Overend Watts)

D
Baby took me out last night

G7
Got a little cadillac bite.

D
Shook me about - inside out

G7                          A
Didn't get home 'till light.

        G                    A
She's a grower, a goer - you gotta get to know her

   G                        A                          D
No chooser, a cruiser - you turn around she'll lose you


Burned out as the light turned green

G7                         D
Smoke-screened off her rail.

He didn't see me comin' but he shoulda saw me runnin'

G7                       A
Faster than the U.S. mail.


        G
She's a speeder, a leader

       A
You're really gonna need her

       G                               A
You'll see her, she'll thrill you, you look at her she'll kill you.


D
Listen, fella, baby don't you sell her

G7
Don't you try and steal her away

D
Hush, man logs in her dam

G7                       A
Think you better fade away


    G                      A
Detonator, jail-baiter - a radar radiator

         G                           A
She'll annoy ya, destroy ya - she'll bring ya down in fire

   G                       A
Create her, mistreat her - no use tryin' to beat her

  G                      A                           D
Admit it, she's greater, shame you weren't born later.
