was a quarter to one
and they were lookin' for fun
just roving like a pack of dogs
three men staring into the face of evil
while the rest of the world
was sawing logs yea
one man packed a switchblade
the other nursing a Night Train
and the man who was driving
ain't nobody mind him
cause he claimed he was the Devil's son c'mon now
last ride on the devil's elbow bridge

they pulled up to the station
the jockey stepped out
and man he couldn't believe his eyes
was a 71' Newport about thirty feet long
with flames painted up the side
said "Hey mister that's a real big car."
"Just how many gallons per mile?"
said "I don't know son,
cause the gauge done broke
just fill it when I'm feelin' wild."
"But that trunk fit 21 bodies
and that back seat made
a lot of young ladies mommies."
he smiled yea he smiled yea
last ride on the devil's elbow bridge
last ride on the devil's elbow

cops picked up the scent
it's all going down the Goshen line
lighting picked up a rear view glimpse
he let that car unwind yea

well local boys
they don't like strangers
especially the kind that run
and they chased that car
all the way to sun
but the Dodge had never seen one

corralled them into plug town line
where you know there's no way out
that's when the cops slammed on the brakes
and lightning put the hammer down
gave the Newport all it was worth
and he thought he found freedom
as he headed for Perth
but the law had plans to kill them
cause the turn was tight
ain't nobody would tell them
it was the last ride yea

last ride on the devil's elbow bridge
last ride on the devil's elbow
