CANDY APPLE RED (Houston Turner) Houston Turner - 1963 Bill Anderson - 1963 George Hamilton IV - 1963 Also recorded by: Stan Hitchcock He came speeding through the town each day at sundown And his car was painted candy apple red He was coming there to see the Sheriff's daughter And the Sheriff didn't know it, so they said Time and time again the Sheriff tried to catch him But he always speeded up and got away That old county jail stood patiently a-waitin' And the Sheriff vowed he'd put him there some day Well there goes candy apple red, that's what the people said If he doesn't slow it down a bit, he's gonna end up dead And the Sheriff's daughter said she'd rather end up dead Than to live without her candy apple red So the Sheriff built a barricade to catch him And he sat there at the limits of the town But the Sheriff's daughter had already met him And she married him before the sun went down When the Sheriff saw them comin' down the highway He saw they couldn't stop and quickly caught his breath As they crashed the barricade the car exploded And the boy and girl went to a flaming death Well there goes candy apple red, that's what the people said If he doesn't slow it down a bit, he's gonna end up dead And the Sheriff's daughter said she'd rather end up dead Than to live without her candy apple red (Contributed by Mel - May 2004)
