Johnny Cash - One piece at a time

 

 



Well I left in Kentucky back in '49

and went to Detroit workin' on an assembly line,

the first year they had me puttin' wheels on Cadillacs.

Everyday I'd watch those beauties roll by

and sometimes I'd hang my head and cry,

'cause I always wanted me one that was long and black.



One day I devised myself a plan

that should be the envy of most any man.

I'd sneek it out of there in a lunchbox, in my hand.

Now gettin' caught meant gettin' fired,

but I figured I'd have it all by the time I retired,

I'd have me a car worth at least a hundred grand.



I'd get it one piece at a time,

and it wouldn't cost me a dime,

you'll know it's me when I come through your town.

I'm gonna ride around in style,

I'm gonna drive everybody wild,

'cause I'll have the only one there is around.



So the very next day when I punched in

with my big lunchbox and some help from my friend,

I left that day with a lunchbox full of gears.

I've never considered myself a theif

but GM wouldn't miss just one little piece,

especially if I strung it out over several years.



The first day I got me a fuel pump,

and the next day I got me an engine and a trunk,

then I got me a transmission and all the chrome.

The little things I could get in my big lunch box,

like nuts and bolts and all four shocks,

but the big stuff we snuck out in my buddy's mobile home.



Now up 'till now my plan went alright

until we tried to put it all together one night,

and that's when we noticed that something was definately wrong.

The transmission was a '63,

and the motor turned out to be a '73,

and when we tried to put in the bolts all the holes were gone.



So we drilled it out so that it would fit,

and with a little bit of help from an adapter kit,

we had that engine runnin' just like a song.

Now the headlights, they was another sight,

we had two on the left and one on the right,

but when we pulled out the switch all three came on.



The back end looked kinda funny, too,

but we put it together and when we got through,

that's when we noticed that we only had one tailfin.

About that time my wife walked out,

and I could see in her eyes she had her doubts,

but she opened the door and said "Honey, take me for a spin."



So we drove uptown just to get the tags,

and I headed a ride on down main drag,

I could hear everybody laughin' for blocks around.

But up there at the courthouse they didn't laugh

'cause to type it up it took the whole staff

and when they got through the title weighed sixty pounds.



I'd get it one piece at a time,

and it wouldn't cost me a dime,

you'll know it's me when I come through your town.

I'm gonna ride around in style,

I'm gonna drive everybody wild,

'cause I'll have the only one there is around.



Uh, yeah, Red Rider, this is the Cottonmouth,

in the Psycho-Billy Cadillac, c'mon.

This is the Cottonmouth, and negatory on

the cost of this mo-chine there, Red Rider.

You might say I went right up to the factory and picked it up,

it's cheaper that way.

Uh, what model is it? It's a '49-'50-'51-'52-'53-'54-

'55-'56-'57-'58-'59 automobile.
