TALKIN' SILVER CLOUD BLUES (Loudermilk) John D. Loudermilk - 1966 I've been singing rock most all my life I got three little boys and a sweet young wife I feed 'em good cause I make good bread Thank God for the man that said Rock 'n' roll is the answer son You can't beat 'em join 'em Get your guitar get your drum Get your set of iron ear drums A thousand watt column And you're in the business son Got my first Cadillac in '54 Since then I had about five more Mercedez Benz and a Porsche too The other day I was thinking this wouldn't do Cause the price of a Cadillac times two Comes out to the cost of a Rolls Royce new But soon the Cadillac's obsolete And the Rolls Royce is still a running sleek Figure four years instead of two Before you gotta buy something new Put an extra fifteen hundred in to pay for the bar and air-conditionin' You don't need no chauffer Get your bartender and ride baby So the other day I drove down from the hill Went to my bank to get me some bills And boots and Levi's worn and tan I ambled into the Rolls Royce stand Showroom four was quiet that day I walked up to a silver grey Silver Cloud all sleek and long Standin' there loose and so alone Such a beautiful sight I never did see Sparkled and shone like a Christmas tree He was really something to admire I moved in close and I kicked the tire Had to get some attention, I got some quickly Well I was comin' my hair down in the chrome When up steps a man in a herring bone Said good morning son may I help you I said yes sir I'd like to testdrive This new Silver Cloud II Well he jumped back his face was sore He looked me over from my head to my toe His face formed into a sneer He said sorry kid this car stays here And don't you kick tose tires Don't open the doors, don't touch the chrome You're gettin' dandruff on the radiator Well I got put on for an hour or more They ushered me in the bossman's door It wasn't long till I came out The bossman followed up with a shout Open the door there look alive And take this boy for a testdrive In the silver grey Silver Cloud The little cat's loaded Lumps in is clothes, gotta look for those How do you think I got where I am today hmm Now I'm driving along ole 501 Listening to them big wheels hum Gotta get home before it's five Take my wife and kids for a drive Now the moral is the part that's best Never judge a man by the way he is dressed Don't you brush him off or treat him wrong He may be the singer of rock songs Don't you forget it What's that pounding noise what's burning Well the temperature is up and the oil is down Termites running around and around on my dashboard Spots on my windshield........trading time
