Lyrics of One Piece At A Time

Well I left Kentucky back in forty-nine
And went to Detroit workin' on a 'sembly line
The first year they had me puttin' wheels on Cadillacs
Every day I'd watch them beauties roll by
And sometimes I'd hang my head and cry
'Cos always wanted me one that was long and black
One day I devised myself a plan
That should be the envy of most any man
I'd sneak it out of there in a lunchbox in my hand
Now gettin' caught meant gettin' fired
But I figured I'd have it all by the time I retired
I'd have me a car worth at least a hundred grand
I'd get it one piece at a time and it wouldn't cost me a dime
You'll know it's me when I come through your town
I'm gonna ride around in style
I'm gonna drive everybody wild
'Cos I'll have the only one there is a round
So the very next day when I punched in
With my big lunchbox with the help from my friends
I left that day with a lunch box full of gears
Now I never considered myself a thief
But GM wouldn't miss just one little piece
Especially if I strung it out over several years
The first day I got me a fuel pump
And the next day I got me an engine and a trunk
Then I got me a transmission and all of the chrome
The little things I could get in my big lunchbox
Like nuts an' bolts and all four shocks
But the big stuff we snuck out in my buddy's mobile home
Now up to now my plan went all right
'Till we tried to put it all together one night
And that's when we noticed that something was definitely wrong
The transmission was a fifty-three
And the motor turned out to be a seventy-three
And when we tried to put in the bolts all the holes were gone
So we drilled it out so that it would fit
And with a little bit of help with an A-daptor kit
We had that engine runnin' just like a song
Now the headlight' was another sight
We had two on the left and one on the right
But when we pulled out the switch all three of 'em come on
The back end looked kinda funny too
But we put it together and when we got through
Well that's when we noticed that we only had one tail-fin
About that time my wife walked out
I could see in her eyes that she had her doubts
But she opened the door and said honey take me for a spin
So we drove up town just to get the tags
And I headed her right on down main drag
I could hear everybody laughin' for blocks around
But up there at the court house they didn't laugh
'Cos to type it up it took the whole staff
And when they got through the title weighed sixty pounds
I'd get it one piece at a time and it wouldn't cost me a dime
You'll know it's me when I come through your town
I'm gonna ride around in style
I'm gonna drive everybody wild
'Cos I'll have the only one there is a round
Huh yeah red ryder this is the cotton mouth
In the psycho-billy Cadillac come on
Huh huh this is the cotton mouth
And negatory on the cost of this mow-chine there red ryder
You might say I went right up to the factory
And picked it up it's cheaper that way
Huh what model is it? well it's a forty-nine fifty
Fifty-one fifty-two fifty-three fifty-four fifty-five fifty-six
Fifty-seven fifty-eight fifty-nine automobile
It's a sixty sixty-one sixty-two sixty-three sixty-four sixty-five
Sixty-six sixty-seven sixty-eight sixty-nine seventy automobile
