"Cadillac Ranch" as written by Charles H. Jones and Chris Waters....
There she sits buddy just gleaming in the sun
There to greet a working man when his day is done
I'm gonna pack my pa and I'm gonna pack my aunt
I'm gonna take them down to the Cadillac Ranch

Eldorado's fins, whitewalls and skirts
Drives just like a little bit of heaven here on earth
When I die buddy throw my body in the back
And take me to the junkyard in my Cadillac

[Chorus:]

Cadillac, Cadillac
Long and dark, shiny and black
Open up them engines let `em roar
Tearing up the highway like a big old dinosaur

James Dean in a Mercury `49
Junior Johnson running in the woods of Caroline
Even Burt Reynolds in a black Trans Am
Are gonna meet me down at the Cadillac Ranch

Hey little girlie in the blue jeans so tight
Driving all alone in a Colorado night
You're my last love, baby you're my last chance
Don't let `em take me to the Cadillac Ranch
