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

       G                  D
I'm a tail-fin road locomotive
          A                 D
From the days of cheap gasoline.
     G                       D            Bm
For sale on the side of the road, goin' nowhere.
Em          A        D
Rusty old American dream.

D                                   G  D
I rolled off the line of Detroit in 1958.
      
Spent two days on the show room,
        A
That's all I had to wait.
           D                               G       D
I've been good to all who've owned me, so have no fear.
         
Come on, boy, put your money down 
     A            D
And get me outta here.

       G                  D
I'm a tail-fin road locomotive
          A                 D
From the days of cheap gasoline.
     G                       D            Bm
For sale on the side of the road, goin' nowhere.
Em          A        D
Rusty old American dream.

D         
This car needs a young man to own him,
                          G
One who will polish the chrome.
                              D
I'll give you the rest of my lifetime,
     Em                     A     *key changes*
But don't let me die here alone.
      E                 
Just jump me some juice to my battery,
                         A
Give that old starter a spin.
                        E *STOP*           C#m
Hear me whir, sputter, backfire to the carburetor
     F#m       B         E
and roar into life once again.

       E                  A
I'm a tail-fin road locomotive
          B                 E
From the days of cheap gasoline.
     E                       A            C#m
For sale on the side of the road, goin' nowhere.
F#m          B        E
Rusty old American dream.
       C#m      F#m         B       E
Still runnin', rusty old American dream.

Well, I do believe you're correct...
Thanks for pointing it out...I'd never noticed. LOL

I love this song SO much, but I gotta say, Pat's version doesn't quite hold up with the original, in my eyes...probably the only Pat cover I could say that about. But that's a testament to the original, not a detriment to Pat's...seriously, anyone who's never heard David Wilcox's stuff needs to try and check it out...he's wonderful.
