Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


455 Rocket  Kathy Mattea

------------------------



[C]   Mr. Smith had an Oldsmobile
[F]   Baby blue with wire wheels
[C]   He took her home the day that she was [G7]advertised
[C]   He said she leaked when it would rain
[F]   Sounded like an aeroplane
[C]   But I knew she was [G7]a jewel in dis[C]guise
[G7]   She had a [C]455 [F]Rocket
The biggest block alive
[C]   I couldn't hardly wait just to tak[G7]e my turn
[C]   She was made for the straight aways
[F]   She grew up hatin' Chevrolets
[C]   She's a rocket,[G7] she was made to [C]burn[G7]
[C]   Well whose junkpile piece of Chevelle is this?
[F]   Did you Boys come here to race or just kiss?
[C]Hmmm   Don't you want to [G7]know what I got underneath my hood?
[C]   I know she might sound like she's missing
[F]   But buddy, she could teach you a lesson
[C]   In just a quarter [G7]mile, and I'll smoke you [C]good
[G7]   In my [C]455 [F]rocket
The kind the police drive
[C]   I couldn't hardly wait just to tak[G7]e my turn
[C]   She was made for the straight aways
[F]   She grew up hatin' Chevrolets
[C]   She's a rocket,[G7]  she was made to [C]burn[G7]
Interlude: C C F F C C G7 G7 C C F F C G7 C G7
[C]   I'm telling you and I ain't ashamed
[F]   I cried when that wrecker came
[C]   As we skid I thought I heard [G7]angels sing
[C]   We hit the curve and began to sail
[F]   Took out most the safety rail
[C]   Even the cop asked me, "[G7]Man what'd you have [C]in that thing?"
[G7]   I had a [C]455 [F]rocket
The very kind you drive
[C]   You oughta watch yourself when you tak[G7]e that turn
[C]   She was made for the straight aways
[F]   She grew up hatin' Chevrolets
[C]   She's a rocket,[G7] she was made to [C]burn, burn
[C]   Lord she's a rocket[G7], she was made to [C]burn.

Third line after interlude is followed by "sounded like the Beach Boys".
