Lyrics

Aunt Marty’s Cadillac                                             

Chorus:                    

You should have seen my Aunt Marty back in the Cadillac Days.

She drove a ’65 Caddy, top down, smelled of bourbon and hay.                                                                      She really was the belle of the ball, Waylon and Willie, man she knew ‘em all!   

You should have seen my Aunt Marty back in those Cadillac Days.

                       

Well, nobody could resist her, my papa’s little sister

when she’d cruise up and down the drag.  She was footloose and shameless,

glamorous and famous, but I really don’t want to brag.

She was the envy of all in Comanche when they saw her with Lucille Ball,

And you won’t believe your eyes, no lie, she’d go fishing with Robert Duvall.

 

Chorus         

 

Comanche was too small, ‘n California was a callin’

So she packed up that Caddy and drove.  She moved in with Roger Miller

In a swanky little villa with the stars out at Lake Tahoe.  You got to love Aunt Marty,

She knew how to party, but it really started taking its toll.

When she finally hit the ground, Mama jumped on a Greyhound

And drove that Caddy straight back home.

 

Chorus

                                   

Well, now Aunt Mary’s in a rest home.  She don’t get around much. She can barely walk,

but when I see that rusty old Cadillac, I think “Man, if that car could talk…”

 

Chorus
