my Chevy Nova won’t go 120 no more
Edelbrock cams, it’s stroked and bored
at the time it was the only thing i could afford
but it whipped any Ford.

it can’t take me home no more
up on blocks, leaves me sore.
got no shocks, wanting more.

it’s presence fills a void in my heart
slowly drips out, as it won’t start
flood the pedal and fill with gas
it’s last fumes, i watch pass

it won’t take me home no more
off to scrap heap, it leaves me sore.
now a sheep in wolves’ clothing

will she the rust over time?
as she sits unsigned
will i know that she’ll go
off to a better place

one hundred twenty miles
