C                                     F+2               C
Well I don't look all that ragged for all the time it's been.
Gsus4
But I'm weakened underneath me where my frame is rusted thin.
    C                                   F+2    C
And this year's state inspection I just barely passed.
                                                Gsus4            C
Won't you drive me 'cross the country, boy this year could be my last.
           F+2                  C
     I'm a tail-finned road locomotive
              Gsus4             C
     From the days of cheap gasoline.
             F+2                     C          Am7
     I'm for sale by the side of the road going nowhere,
       F+2        Gsus4   C
     A rusty old American dream.
                                         F+2            C
I rolled off the line in Detroit back in nineteen fifty-eight.
                                                      Gsus4
Spent three days in the showroom, that's all I had to wait.
          C                            F+2     C
I've been good to all who owned me, so have no fear.
                                   Gsus4        C
C'mon boy, put your money down and get me outta here.
           F+2                  C
     I'm a tail-finned road locomotive
              Gsus4             C
     From the days of cheap gasoline.
             F+2                     C          Am7
     I'm for sale by the side of the road going nowhere,
       F+2        Gsus4   C
     A rusty old American dream.
(C)
Now this car needs a young man to own him.
                         F+2
One who will polish the chrome.
                               C        Am7
I will give you the rest of my lifetime
  F+2                    Gsus4
B'don't let me die here alone.
(capo III)
        C
Ya just jump me some juice to my ba'ttry.
                        F+2
Give that old starter a spin.
                        C                    Am7
Hear me whirr, sputter, backfire through the carburetor
    F+2       Gsus4      C
And roar into life once again.
            F+2                  C
     I am a tail-finned road locomotive
             Gsus4               C
     You can polish my chrome so clean.
            F+2              C        Am7
     We can fly off into the sunset together,
     F+2        Gsus4   C             Am7
     Rusty old American dream - still runnin'
     F+2        Gsus4   C
     Rusty old American dream.
