Pic of a Cragar mag wheel.

Keystones and CragarsPic of a Keysone mag wheel, similar to the ones I had on my fire engine red 1966 Ford Fairlane, with 390 ci engine and C6 transmission, which I enjoyed driving around the South End of Louisville, Kentucky, including Jefferson County.

 

Song lyrics by Chrome Dome Mike Kimbro

 

Structure:  The accent points align for all 3 verses.

 

Read along to my Spoken Verse Performance!

 

 

OPEN WITH:

 

Rock, Rock, Rockiní,

 

Rockiní them wheels.  (Oh, yeah)

 

Rock, Rock, Rockiní,

 

Rockiní them wheels.   (Oh, yeah)

 

 

VERSE 1

 

Pulliní up to the light

 

Thinkiní bout the day ahead

 

And then it came into sight

 

In a coat of primer red.

 

Itís often hard to explain

 

How a car guy feels.

 

But while that car was plain,

 

It was rockiní classic wheels.

 

 

CHORUS

 

We lived for Friday night

 

(Got off work at nine)

 

(Had to be home by one)

 

Just a spark would ignite.

 

(That was plenty of time)

 

(For us to have a little fun)

 

Before the time of college and keggers,

 

We came off the line on Keystones and Cragars.

 

 

VERSE 2

 

Find a party we could crash,

 

If we hadnít gotten paid.

 

But if we had a check to cash,

 

Pizza pie and the arcade.  [Long E on Ďtheí]

 

 

In Tomyís Dodge we escaped.

 

Made us feel so free.

 

But as Tom changed a tape,

 

Wrapped his Charger 'round a tree.

 

 

CHORUS

 

We lived for Friday night

 

(Got off work at nine)

 

(Had to be home by one)

 

Just a spark would ignite.

 

(That was plenty of time)

 

(For us to have a little fun)

 

Before the time of college and keggers,

 

We came off the line on Keystones and Cragars.

 

 

VERSE 3

 

So in Markís Malibu

 

Where we raised our battle cries.

 

And all our girls just knew

 

Friday night was for us guys.

 

 

But when I went out with Dot

@  But when I went out with Marge

 

I took my old manís ride.

 

Cause the big land yacht

@  Cause the big land barge 

 

Had a back seat long and wide.

 

 

CHORUS

 

We lived for Friday night

 

(Got off work at nine)

 

(Had to be home by one)

 

Just a spark would ignite.

 

(That was plenty of time)

 

(For us to have a little fun)

 

Before the time of college and keggers,

 

We came off the line on Keystones and Cragars.
