Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


455 Rocket 2  Kathy Mattea

[D]   Mr. Smith had an Oldsmobile
[G]   Baby blue with wire wheels
[D]   He took her home the day that she was advertised[A7]
[D]   He said she leaked when it would rain
[G]   Sounded like an aeroplane
[D]   But I knew she was a jewel in [A7]disguise[D]
[A7]   She had a 455 [D]Rocke[G]t
The biggest block alive
[D]   I couldn't hardly wait just to take my turn[A7]
[D]   She was made for the straight aways
[G]   She grew up hatin' Chevrolets
[D]   She's a rocket, she wa[A7]s made to burn
[D]   Well whose junkpile piece of Chevelle is this?
[G]   Did you Boys come here to race or just kiss?
[D]Hmmm   Don't you want to know what I got u[A7]nderneath my hood?
[D]   I know she might sound like she's missing
[G]   But buddy, she could teach you a lesson
[D]   In just a quarter mile, [A7]and I'll smoke you good[D]
[A7]   In my 45[D]5 ro[G]cket
The kind the police drive
[D]   I couldn't hardly wait just to take my turn[A7]
[D]   She was made for the straight aways
[G]   She grew up hatin' Chevrolets
[D]   She's a rocket,  she wa[A7]s made to burn[D]
Interlude: D D G G D A7 D A7
*****BASE & DRUM ONLY*****
[D]   I'm telling you and I ain't ashamed
[G]   I cried when that wrecker came
[D]   As we skid I thought I heard angels sing [A7]
[D]   We hit the curve and began to sail
[G]   Took out most the safety rail
[D]                                    [A7] [D]   Even the cop asked me, "Man what'd you have in that thing?"
*****GUITAR STARTS AGAIN*****
[A7]   I had a 4[D]55 r[G]ocket
The very kind you drive
[D]   You oughta watch yourself when you take that turn[A7]
[D]   She was made for the straight aways
[G]   She grew up hatin' Chevrolets
[D]   She's a rocket, she [A7]was made to burn, burn[D]
[D]   Lord she's a rocket, she was [A7]made to burn.[D]
