Racing In The Street (Taylor Roger)

G I got a 69 Chevy with a 396 C Fuellie heads and a Hurst on the floor Am She's waiting tonight down in the parking lot C Outside the seven 'nd eleven store G Me and my partner Sonny built her straight out of scratch C And he rides with me from town to town Am We only run for the money got no strings attached C We set'em up and then we shut'em down G Tonight tonight the strips just right C I wanna blow'em off in my first heat Am Summer's here and the time is right C For racing in the street G We take all the action we can meet C And we cover all the north east states Am When the strip shuts down we run'em in the street C From the fire roads to the interstate G Now some guys they just give up living C And start dying little by little piece by piece Am Some guys come home from work and wash up C And go racing in the street G Tonight tonight the strips just right C I wanna blow 'em all outta their seats Am We calling out around the world C We're going racing in the street G I met her on the strip three years ago C C In a Camero with this dude from L.A. Am G/B I blew that Camero off my back C And drove that little girl away G But now there's wrinkles round my baby's eyes C And she cries herself to sleep at night Am When I come home the house is dark C She sighs 'baby did you make it alright?' G She sits on the porch of her daddy's house C But all her pretty dreams are torn Am She stares off alone into the night C With the eyes of one who hates for just being born G For all the shut-down strangers and hot-rod angels C Rumbling through this promised land Am Tonight my baby and me we're gonna ride to the sea C And wash these sins off our hands G Tonight tonight the highway's bright C Out of our way mister you best keep Am 'Cos summer's here and the time is right C For racing in the street G Tonight tonight the strip's just right C I'm gonna blow'em all outta their seats Am 'Cos summer's here and the time is right C G For racing in the street C G C G C In the street, in the street, in the street...
