Subject: Pop lyrics?
From: Jerry Friedman
Date: 20 Sep 99 - 11:21 AM

The lyrics sites I'm familiar with (through the Mudcat links) seem to have been shut down or made unusable. Does anybody know a good place to get pop lyrics nowadays?

And in case a kind soul wants to help out, the one I'm looking for is "Hot Rod Lincoln". For a friend!

The Lyrics World site (and Mudcat link) is still alive and well and has the song you seek.

Hi, Jerry - I swear that song's been posted here, but I didn't find it in a Forum search. Click here to get to the lyrics at Cowpie.
You may want to bookmark these sites:
Cowpie (country lyrics) - http://www.roughstock.com/cowpie/

International Lyrics Server (crippled, but still there) - http://www.lyrics.ch/

Rabid Squirrel's Jazz Archive (my favorite) -http://www.fortunecity.com/tinpan/newbonham/6/index.htm

Lyrics World (probably the best pop lyrics site still alive) - http://www.summer.com.br/~pfilho/summer.html

OLGA (On-Line Guitar Archive - search the mirror sites listed) - http://olga.net/
I think these are all listed on our Links page.

You sure get quick service around here!

Thanks to all. Lyrics World worked very nicely. I couldn't get OLGA and the International Lyrics Server to give me anything useful, even trying the mirror sites. I think the last time I tried Lyrics World, it was down, and I foolishly assumed it had gone the way of the others.

By the way, Joe, that link at Cowpie is just suggestions for playing the rhythm-guitar part--sort of a tab in an unusual format.

Okay.............

Well you heard the story of the hot rod race
That fatal day when the Ford and the Mercury went out to play
Well this is the inside story and I'm here to say
I was the kid that was a drivin' that Model A.

Well it's got a Lincoln motor and it's really souped up
But that Model A body makes it look like a pup
Got 12 cylinders and uses them all
With an overdrive that just won't stall.

Got a 4 barrel carb and dual exhaust
With a 4.11 gear you can really get lost
Got safety tubes and I'm not scared
'Cause the brakes are good and the tires are fair.

Well we left San Pedro late one night
The moon and the stars were shinin' bright
Everything went fine up the Grapevine Hill
We was passin' cars, just like they was standin' still.

When all of the sudden in the flick of an eye
A Cadillac sedan had passed me by
The remark was made, "There's the car for me"
But by then the taillights was all you could see.

Well the fellas ribbed me for bein' behind
So I started to make that Lincoln unwind
I took my foot off the gas
And man alive, I shoved her down into overdrive

I wound her up to 110
Twisted the speedometer cable right off the end
I had my foot beat clear to the floor
Said "That's all there is, there ain't no more."

Went around a corner and I passed a truck
Whispered a prayer, just for luck
Fenders clickin' on the guard rail posts
The guys beside me were white as ghosts.

They said, "Boy I think you've lost your sense
Them telephone poles look like a picket fence."
Said "Slow down...I see spots
Them lines in the road they just look like dots."

Smoke was a rollin' outta' the back
When I started to gain on that Cadillac
Knew I could catch him and hoped I could pass
But when I did, I be sure to UN-gas!

Went around the corner with the tires on the side
You could feel the tension, Man whadda' ride
Said, "Hold on I gotta' license to fly"
The Caddy pulled over...Let me go by.

Just about then a rod started knockin'
Went down in a dip and started to rockin'
Looked in my mirror and a red light was blinkin'
Cops.....after my hot rod Lincoln

Well they arrested me and they put me in jail
Called my Pop to go my bail
He said, "Son, you're gonna' drive me to drinkin'
If you don't quit drivin' that Hot Rod Lincoln."

Spaw - It's a favorite of Cletus, Buford and Paw

Oh, fer dumb. You're right, Jerry - I found the listing for the song at Cowpie, but didn't scroll past the guitar information and didn't realize that there were no lyrics posted. And what OLGA has is a copy of Cowpie's information - but I did check this time, and OLGA still does have lyrics and tab for other songs that you can search for at the site I posted above - you just have to study the site a little closer. International Lyrics Server has the song, but it flashes past you on the screen so fast that you can't even read all the lyrics aloud - and you can't highlight and copy them.
So, click here to get to the lyrics you already found at Lyrics World.

Thanks again! I've obviously been giving up too easily. If there's a Mudcat Spirit, it isn't that.

BTW...After typing that crap like the dumbass that I am, I saw that our resident "Hotshoes" had already netted the damn thing...so I went and read the site about Charlie Ryan. He had another one that I didn't see mention of there called "Side Car Cycle" (pronounced "Sickel'). I ain't posting that one. I'm sure it's somewhere and the 'Shoes can find it if you want it Jerry.

Yeah, I don't think we want to go teaching Catspaw how to do blue clicky things. That could be dangerous....

I don't think you're dumb, Joe, and my friend Pete may appreciate the non-tab tab.

I don't think you're dumb either, Spaw. I'm grateful for the typing, and I have NO FEAR that your first ten blue clicky things will lead to the Mucdat home page.
