Art & Inspiration Songs that mention a car or engine by name

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by BJR, Oct 7, 2019.

  1. Springsteen's "From Small Things", again Edmunds version is great. I think Springsteen wrote if for Edmunds if I remember the story correctly.

    I'm not savvy enough to down load it, and the term Highway Star maybe a little generic. But Sammy Hagar and Michel Anthony with Chickenfoot rock it big time. Look it up and Turn it up..........

    Here's one for the Aussies and Kiwi's

    The Newcastle song [ Ironically by Bob Hudson ]

    And all the young men of Newcastle
    Drive down Hunter Street
    In their hot FJ Holdens
    With chrome-plated grease nipples
    and double reverse twin cam door handles
    Sitting eight abreast in the front seat
    And they would lean out the window
    And say real cool things to the sheilas on the footpath

  24. Social Distortion- Machine Gun Blues

    Well I'm a gangster in 1934
    Junkies, winos, pimps, and whores
    and all you men, women and kids, best stay out the way
    I just left your town, took all your loot
    Wore a pink carnation and a pinstripe suit
    A hopped up V8 Ford, and some two-tone shoes
    And I'm already gone
    I left a pool of blood and sorrow
    I've got the machine gun blues
    I'll be out of here before the break of dawn
    Hit the highway, smoke a big cigar
    Gonna stop and bury the cash, then get some more
    There's only one thing on my mind that's makin' across that ol' state line
    Amid a hail of avenging bullets that are meant for me
    And I'm already gone
    I left a path of pure destruction
    I've got the machine gun blues
    Already done, my life will soon be though
    I've got the machine gun blues
    I'm public enemy number one
    I'm sorry for all the things that I've done
    If indeed we do cross paths, it's nothing personal
    And I'm already gone
    I left a trail of devastation
    I've got the machine gun blues
    Already gone, my life will soon be though
    I've got the machine gun blues
