Carl Perkins' Cadillac

Life ain't nothing but a blending up of all the ups and downs

Dammit Elvis, don't you know

You made your Mama so proud

Before you ever made that record, before there ever was a Sun

Before you ever lost that Cadillac that Carl Perkins won

Mr. Phillips found old Johnny Cash and he was high

High before he ever took those pills and he's still too proud to die

Mr. Phillips never said anything behind nobody's back

Like "Dammit Elvis, don't he know, he ain't no Johnny Cash"

If Mr. Phillips was the only man that Jerry Lee still would call sir

Then I guess Mr. Phillips did all of y'all about as good as you deserve

He did just what he said he was gonna do and the money came in sacks

New contracts and Carl Perkins' Cadillac

I got friends in Nashville, or at least they're folks I know

Nashville is where you go to see if what they said is so

Carl drove his brand new Cadillac to Nashville and he went downtown

This time they promised him a Grammy

He turned his Cadillac around

Mr. Phillips never blew enough hot air to need a little gold plated paperweight

He promised him a Cadillac and put the wind in Carl's face

He did just what he said he was gonna do and the money came in sacks

New contracts and Carl Perkins' Cadillac

Dammit Elvis, I swear son I think it's time you came around

Making money you can't spend ain't what being dead's about

You gave me all but one good reason not to do all the things you did

Now Cadillacs are fiberglass, if you were me you'd call it quits
