455 ROCKET
By Kathy Mattea

Tabbed By Sharon

Intro:  D  D   D  D    

D
Mr. Smith had an Oldsmobile
G
Baby blue with wire wheels
D                                           A7
He took her home the day that she was advertised
D
He said she leaked when it would rain
G
Sounded like an aeroplane
D                     A7            D
But I knew she was a jewel in disguise

Chorus:
A7        D    G
She had a 455 Rocket

The biggest block alive
D                                      A7
I couldn't hardly wait just to take my turn
D
She was made for the straight aways
G 
She grew up hatin' Chevrolets
D                       A7      D         
She's a rocket, she was made to burn


Well whose junkpile piece of Chevelle is this?
Did you Boys come here to race or just kiss?
Hmmm   Don't you want to know what I got underneath my hood?
I know she might sound like she's missing
But buddy, she could teach you a lesson
In just a quarter mile, and I'll smoke you good

In my 455 rocket
The kind the police drive
I couldn't hardly wait just to take my turn
She was made for the straight aways
She grew up hatin' Chevrolets
She's a rocket,  she was made to burn

I'm telling you and I ain't ashamed
I cried when that wrecker came
As we skid I thought I heard angels sing 
We hit the curve and began to sail
Took out most the safety rail
Even the cop asked me, "Man what'd you have in that thing?"

I had a 455 rocket
The very kind you drive
You oughta watch yourself when you take that turn
She was made for the straight aways
She grew up hatin' Chevrolets
She's a rocket, she was made to burn, burn
Lord she's a rocket, she was made to burn.
We do sing and play your USA music in Aussie Land.

Instead of D,G & A7, try C,F & G, close but not the right chord progression
