Old Blue Ford
Music & Lyrics by Delma Carl Suggs

The paint is faded
On this old mottled skin,
With bubbles of rust
Pushing up from within.
The hood is dented
And the windshield is cracked--
A shining example
Of the maintenance lacked.

Chorus:

Forty years ago,
It was brand spanking new,
Forty years ago,
Man, it sparkled like the dew.
And it isn't a Cadillac,
Not a Packard, Not a Cord--
It's had a pretty good life
As an old blue Ford

The original engine
Still runs like a colt--
Although it's lost some compression,
And it's seized a few bolts.
The upholstery is raged,
A bit worn and in need--
It was sure built for comfort
And occasional speed.

Chorus

Bridge:

They worked around the clock
Back in 1954--
And after this model
They didn't make any more.
It's the final edition
From a company team
Carving out a piece of
The American Dream

You can tune the engine
You can change the oil,
Tighten up the suspension,
Replace the shocks and coil.
But the chassis is solid,
And the drive train is strong--
Keep it out on the highway
And you will never go wrong.
