The name’s Flyrod. American car culture is my thing. If it rolls, roars, or rumbles I’m into it. Statistics and facts aren’t my gig. My mission is to track down and capture the infamous rides that make up pop culture, and to tell their stories.
Rocket to Nashville
On a bright summer day back in fifty-sevenShe rambled her way to that Tennessee heaven
On a westbound road in a Rocket Eighty-EightA woman in pursuit of a much better fate
That Nashville skyline was just up the roadShe eased off the gas as the Oldsmobile slowed
She had a lot of money and her daddy was richThe gal had it all but there still was a hitch
Her greatest source of happiness was playing her guitarAnd singing country ballad’s by her favorite star
She liked to write songs, she didn’t care if it sellsShe was a honky tonk angel like her hero Kitty Wells
She bought a little dive with a dance floor and a stageWhere she sang every night, it was all the rage
She never got famous but it didn’t really matterThere’s a lot more to life than climbing that ladder
To a “have-it-all” world this might sound funnyBut doing what you love is even better than money
She lived the simple life and gave her money awayPossessions didn’t matter she just loved to play
Her rule had two exceptions; this is what they areA guitar made by Martin and an Oldsmobile car
