Cadillac Ranch
(Chris Waters/Chuck Jones)

Well the well went dry and the cow did too
Daddy didn't know what to do
The banker came by the house one day
Said he's gonna take the farm away
Then momma came up with a plan
Brother and me started up a band
Sister put a sign on the roof
And daddy bought a case of ninety-proof

CHORUS
Now we call it the cadillac ranch
They're parking cars in the old feed patch
There's a bar in the barn and the place stays packed
'Til the cows come home at cadillac ranch

Now the only thing that we raise is cane
You don't need the sun or rain
Just neon lights and some ice cold beer
Keeps everything real around here
Momma takes the cash at the door
Brother and me keep 'em out on the floor
Sister sets them up at the bar
And daddy kicks back with a big cigar

CHORUS
Well we gave all the cows away
Now the only horns around here today
Are the ones up on the grill
Of a genuine fifty-nine coupe DeVille

CHORUS 2x
