Broke down on the side of the road
Damn brakes locked up in the rain
Smoke's pourin' out from under my hood
I'm stuck on the highway again

I'm too young to quit
Too old to change
Baby what am I gonna do?
I got the chopped top, slammed down
'49 Mercury blues

Can't find a phone, can't hitch a ride
Who would stop for me anyway?
You would think that after all of
These cars I've owned
I'd break down and join triple A

I'm too young to quit
I'm too old to change
Baby what am I gonna do?
I got the chopped top, slammed down
'49 Mercury blues

I got the '49 Mercury blues
By now you'd think I've paid all
My dues
Just think of all the trouble
That car is puttin' me through

Well I guess like a tooth
That needs to get filled
It's gonna hurt
And you're gonna get drilled
And once you get it fixed
It happens all over again

I'm too young to quit
I'm too old to change
Baby what am I gonna do?
I got the chopped top, slammed down
'49 Mercury blues

I got the '49 Mercury blues
By now you'd think I've paid all
My dues
Just think of all the trouble
That car is puttin' me through

I guess like a tooth
That needs to get filled
You know it's gonna hurt
And you're gonna get drilled
And once you get it fixed
It happens all over again

I'm too young to quit
I'm too old to change
Baby what am I gonna do?
I got the chopped top, slammed down
'49 Mercury blues
Oh yeah
I got the chopped top, slammed down
'49 Mercury blues
Oh yeah
