Still looking for highway motor vehicle songs
As I begged, groveled, and pleaded in my earlier post, composite drawlings: Will somebody help me, please?, I'm looking for titles of songs which feature cars, trucks, motorcycles, etc.
I got a couple of e-mails from friends, adding to the list, which now includes these (and which I tracked down afterward, mostly in lyric.com):
Car-Car(Mom used to sing this to us kids as we were driving to Grandma's house); This Car of Mine; Cars;Used Cars; Fast Car; Hot Rod Lincoln; In My Merry Oldsmobile; Little Old Lady from Pasadena; No Particular Place to Go; Little Deuce Coupe; Little Red Corvette; Fire; Pink Cadillac; Drive;Drive My Car; a host of other songs whose titles include the word "drive", including I Can't Drive 55;Fun, Fun, Fun; Hitchin' a Ride; Life in the Fast Lane; (which always trips my memory chords to Kip Adotta's "Life in the Slaw Lane") 409; Beep Beep;Truckin'; Keep On Truckin'; Dead Man's Curve;On the Road (one of my favorites to sing to the cats); Taxi (a good one in the shower); Early Morning Cold Taxi; Shut Down
And these, for which I have not yet hunted down lyrics:
Born to be Wild; Low Rider; Road to Nowhere; Highway to Hell; Me and Bobby McGee; Take It Easy; Get out of my Dreams (And Into My Car); Wolf Creek Pass; Convoy; Big Yellow Taxi; On the Road Again; Back Home Again; The Wheels on the Bus; Motorcycle Mama; Radar Love; Truck on Fire; Truck Drivin' Man; Truck Driver Divorce; Cars Trucks Buses; Car Crazy Cutie; Cherry, Cherry Coupe
Please, please, please, add to this list what you can!
Update/Correction: "Life in the Slaw Lane" was written by both Adotta and Biff Manard. But I still laugh every time I hear mention of "Life in the Fast Lane".
