Kathy Mattea — Nobody's Gonna Rain On Our Parade lyrics

Baby blue with wire wheels
I took her home the day that she was advertised
He sais she leaked when it would rain
Sounded like an aeroplane
But I knew she was a jewel in disguise
She had a 455 rocket
Biggest block alive
I couldn't hardly wait just to take my turn
She was made for the straight aways
She grew up hatin' Chevrolets
She's a rocket, she was made to burn
Well whose junkpile piece of C-Chevelle is this?
You boys come here to race or just kiss?
Hmmm Don't you want to know what I got underneath my hood
I know she might sound like she's missing
But buddy she could teach you a lesson
In just a quarter mile, and I'll smoke you good
In my 455 rocket
The kind the police drive
I couldn't hardly wait just to take my turn
She was made for the straight aways
She grew up hatin' Chevrolets
She's a rocket, she was made to burn
I'm telling you and I ain't ashamed
I cried when that wrecker came
As we skid I thought I hears the angels sing
We hit the curve and began to sail
Took out most of the saftey rail
Even the cop asked me,
