Marc Cohn

[G] You can keep your Eldorado

[C] And the foreign car's ab[G]surd

Me, I wanna go down [D]

In a Sil[C]ver Thunderbird

[Em] [D/F# bass] [G]

[Em] [D/F# bass] [G] [C] [D]

[Em] [D] [G] Watched him [G/B bass] comin' up [C] Wins[G/B]low

Down [Am] South Park [G] Boulevard [D]

Yeah, he was [Em] lookin' [D/F#] good from [G] tail to hood

[G] Great big [G/B] fins and [C] painted [G/B] steel

Man it [Am] looked just [G] like the [D] Batmobile

With [Em] my old [D/F#] man be[G]hind the wheel

Well you could [Em] hardly even [D] see him in [C] all of that [G]
chrome

The [Em] man with the [D] plan and the [C] pocket [G] comb

Yeah, but [Am] every [G/B] night it [C] carried him [D] home

Then I [F]watched him [G]walk right [C]through[Am]

Now, se[F]curity they [G]did not [C]see him[Am]

They just[F] hovered a[G]round his[C] tomb[Am].

But there's a [F]pretty little [G]thing [C]waiting for the

[F]And they [G]asked me if I[C] would[Am]

[F]Do a [G]little [C]number[Am]

And I[F] sang with [G]all my [C]might[Am]

She said "[F]Tell me, are [G]you a [C]Christian, [Am]child?"

And I said "[F]Ma'am, I [G]am ton[C]ight."

{c:Chorus}

[F]Put [G]on my [C]blue suede [Am]shoes and I [F]board[G]ed the plane

[F]In the middle of the [G]pouring [C]rain [Am]

[F]Touched down in the [G]land of the [C]Delta [Am]Blues

[F]In the middle of the [G]pouring [C]rain [Am]
