  1. Old Beat Up Car

From the recording El Camino Real

Lyrics

OLD BEAT UP CAR
This old beat up car
It ain’t going nowhere
But if it could go somewhere
I’d take it for a ride
I’d take it way down south
Somewhere south of Texas
South beneath the border
Señorita by my side

Now when they look at me
They think that I’m a wild man
Some say I’m a sad man
But if they knew where I’ve been
Been way down south to Vietnam
Fighting for the big man
Eating from a tin can
With some good friends by my side

There came a time I met a woman
We rolled the die, gave it a chance
I thought for sure she was salvation
She was for sure when we danced
When we danced . . .

This old beat up car
I think it was a Cadillac
An old-time fifties Cadillac
The kind with wings that fly
And if this car could fly
I'd fly it way down south
Somewhere south of Texas
Señorita by my side

I say I’d fly it way down south with
A señorita named Margarita
By my side
By my side
