		  C  			      D        G

              Rides just like a little bit of heaven here on earth 
              Well buddy when I die throw my body in the back 
              And drive me to the junkyard in my Cadillac

              James Dean in that Mercury `49 
              Junior Johnson runnin' through the woods of Caroline 
              Even Burt Reynolds in that black Trans Am 
              All gonna meet down at the Cadillac Ranch 
              Cadillac, Cadillac... 
              Hey little girlie in the blue jeans so tight 
              Drivin' alone through the Wisconsin night 
              You're my last love you're my last chance 
              Don't let `em take me to the Cadillac Ranch 
              Cadillac, Cadillac...
