Automobile Blues

Automobile Blues
(Lightning Hopkins)

I saw you riding 'round in your brand new automobile
Yes I saw you ridin' around, babe, in your brand new automobile
Yes you was sitting there happy with your handsome driver at the wheel
In your brand new automobile

Now your car so pretty baby, will you let me drive sometime
Yes your car so pretty baby, please let me drive sometime
She says her chauffeur was a good chauffeur, lord but he ain't like mine
In your brand new automobile

Baby come on and get me, and let's go and have some fun
In your brand new automobile, I just want to see that new car run
Yes, everything will be alright, baby just about the break of dawn
In your brand new automobile

You got your new car, darlin', and I know just how you feel
Yes I know you sitting there happy with your handsome driver at the wheel
Yes but you got too many drivers holding on to your darn wheel
In your brand new automobile
