Chorus:
A
Maybellene, why can't you be true
D7                               A 
Oh, Maybellene, why can't you be true
E7                    D7                A
You've started back doin' the things you used to do.
  
Verse 1:
A
As I was motivatin' over the hill
I saw Maybellene in a Coupe de Ville
Cadillac rollin' on the open the road
Nothin' outruns my V8 Ford
Cadillac doin''bout 95
Bumper-to-bumper, rollin' side by side
 
A
Maybellene, why can't you be true
D7                     A
Oh, Maybellene, why can't you be true
E7                    D7             A
You've started back doin' the things you used to do.
 
A
Cadillac rolled up ahead of the Ford
The Ford got hot, wouldn't do no more
It soon got cloudy and it started to rain
I tooted my horn for the passing lane
Rain was pourin' under my hood
I knew that was doin' my motor good
  
A
Maybellene, why can't you be true
D7                    A
Oh, Maybellene, why can't you be true
E7                    D7                A
You've started back doin' the things you used to do.
  
SOLO: same pattern as chorus
  
A
Maybellene, why can't you be true
D7                              A
Oh, Maybellene, why can't you be true
E7                    D7                 A
You've started back doin' the things you used to do.
 
A
Motor cooled down, the heat went down
That's when I heard that highway sound
The Cadillac sittin' like a ton of lead
110 half a mile ahead
The Cadillac looked like it was sittin' still
I caught Maybellene at the top of the hill
  
A
Maybellene, why can't you be true
D7                              A
Oh, Maybellene, why can't you be true
E7                    D7                A
You've started back doin' the things you used to do
