C                                      F                 C
Well, I don't look all that ragged for all the time it's been,
                                        G          
But I'm weakened underneath me where my frame is rusted thin.
    C                                 F      C
And this year's state inspection just barely passed
                                       
Won't you drive me 'cross the country, boy,
     G                C
This year could be my last.


      F                C               G                 C
I'm a tailfin road locomotive from the days of cheap gasoline,
            F                       C          Am
And I'm for sale by the side of the road going nowhere,
  F         G        C
A rusty old American dream.


C                                        F   C
I rolled off the line in Detroit back in 1958,
                                         G
Spent three days in the showroom, that's all I had to wait.
          C                            F       C
I've been good to all who owned me, so have no fear;
                                    G             C
C'mon, boy, put your money down and get me out of here!


      F                C               G                 C
I'm a tailfin road locomotive from the days of cheap gasoline,
            F                       C          Am
And I'm for sale by the side of the road going nowhere,
  F         G        C
A rusty old American dream.


     C                     
This car needs a young man to own him
                        F
One who will polish the chrome,
       F                       C
I will give you the rest of my lifetime,
    Am                    D
But don't let me die here alone.

Just jump me some juice to my battery,
                        G
Give that old starter a spin,
                       D                    Bm
Hear me whir, sputter, backfire through the carberator,
    G         A         D
And roar into life once again.


      G                D
I'm a tailfin road locomotive,
        A                   D
You can polish my chrome so clean
       G                D        Bm
We can fly off into the sunset together,
  G         A        D
A rusty old American dream
        Bm
Still a runnin', 
G         A        D
Rusty Old American Dream
