I just googled it and came up with this - Tim Radford

MGB-GT
Written by Richard Thompson
Appears on   Mirror Blue   (1994)
Live At Crawley 1993   (1995)
two letter words: live 1994   (1996)

Oh I've got a little car and she might go far
She's the mistress of my heart now
She's a '65 with an overdrive
And I fixed her in every part now
Two in the front and two in the back
110 on the old Hog's Back
My MGB-GT, she's a runner now
MGB-GT
Oh my MGB-GT, she's a runner now

Oh I welded the sills and the old floor pan
Cut the rust with the torch and the hacksaw
Took the Rostyles off, put the spoked wheels on
Got a brand new Salisbury axle
When I come to town the girls all smile
They say "Here's the man with the retro style"
My MGB-GT, she's a runner now
MGB-GT
Oh my MGB-GT, she's a runner now

Lockheed discs and twin SUs
Original chrome on the grille now
She looks like a dream in her racing green
Competition's standing still now
I sprayed up her body, I strengthened the frame
I stripped her right down and I built her up again

Now an Alpine's fine if you've got the time
And a Healey'll set you back some
And a TR4 costs a little bit more
But it don't have the same attraction
Hard top handy, in case of the weather
I don't care if it rains forever
In my MGB-GT, she's a runner now
MGB-GT
In my MGB-GT, she's a runner now
MGB-GT
In my MGB-GT, she's a runner now

For Richard Thompson songs you can't beat the Beesweb Song-o-matic RT's official site song search engine, which will get you the words to all of his songs (I think!). A search there will get you to MGB-GT

Louise, you should start a new thread with the song's name in the thread title, to wit: "Lyr Req: The Sky Scraper Wean". Folks with info on that song are unlikely to find your request in this thread.

And please post the lyrics while you're at it - it sounds interesting!

Cheers,
Michael

In order to find Adam MacNaughton's 'Skyscraper wean' (note that skyscraper is always a single word) simply type skyscraper wean into the onsite search engine ('lyrics and knowledge' box at the top of every page here). There is no need to start a new thread; words are already in the DT and have been posted in the Forum, with suggested guitar chords at  Chord Req: Skyscraper wean(jeely peice)song in the past.
