Back Roads Rock

My sixty-nine Chevelle SS was built for playing chicken
And half a case of Bud got me started on my drinking
Bottles tossed on back roads but there's plenty more beer waiting
And I know some girls in Barrington who've given up on dating -
 Back roads rock!

Man the stupid cops 'round here will stop you just to see
What you're rolling, what a pain, they're always bugging me
Call it admiration, or just redneck show and tell,
We got girls and beers here so you can go to hell -
 Back roads rock!

 "What're your secondaries, double pump or vacuum?"
Whatever, it's not stolen, Bob
 "Is that a posi there? I swear I've seen your patches -"
That crummy badge you're wearing can kiss my juvie ass -
 Back roads rock!

Got a badly-wired eight-track through a booster under dash,
Half-blown six-by-nines rattling loosely in the back
Doubled limit speeding can't drive sober if I tried
I never did before can you guess the reason why -
 Back roads rock!

One day might be out there with all four unsuspended -
Insurance, license, registration, state inspected fenders
But not today, copper! Hah - Bob, you know it's cool,
You never saw me, never saw me, never catch me, fool!
 Back roads rock!

  (rumbling backfire interlude)

Kids these days are stuck with Grandma's rusty Saturn
Friday nights they try to make that GM junk go faster -
Still the same old drinking game catch and mouse with cops
And only fixin' things when the bolts have fallen off
 Back roads rock!

She's trying to hide the Bondo with half a can of paint
I know I'm leaking coolant and the gears aren't shifting great
That "old car smell", weed and beer's going to my head
Your sister's sweet perfume is still lingering in my bed -
 Your sister's cheap perfume it's still reeking in the back -
 Your sister I don't know what she's doing in my lap -
Never gonna let this car go
Never gonna let this car go
Never never never never never let me go -
     Don't ever let me grow old

(restarts with choruses)

 Back roads rock! Back roads rock!
Never let me never let me never let me never let me

 Back roads rock! Back roads rock!
Never let your sister touch me waitress velvet thighs
 Back roads rock! Back roads rock!
Never let your sister serve me deep brown dancing eyes

 Back roads rock! Back roads rock!
Your sister's trying to shake me up and sweat it out all night
 Back roads rock! Back roads rock!
Your sister's favorite way of saying "yes" is freaking tight

 Back roads rock! Back roads rock!
Never let your sister know she makes me feel so frisky
 Back roads rock! Back roads rock!
Never let me smell her when I should be drinking whisky

 Back roads rock! Back roads rock!
Never tell me through the years your sister's getting older
 Back roads rock! Back roads rock!
Never tell me life is only feelings getting colder

 Back roads rock! Back roads rock!
Never let me never let me never let me never let me

 Don't ever let me grow old

Back roads rock, back roads rock.
Back roads rock, back roads rock.

Back roads rock, back roads rock.
Back roads rock, back roads rock.

 Don't ever let me grow old

(Photo driven like I stole it)

I saved the abbreviated version of the lyrics I shared with the first very crude demo as Back Roads (Skeleton Key).
