Willie's Yellar' Pick-Up Truck (Roy Payne) video

Now, Willie was a Casanova
way back in fifty-seven,
All the young girls thought that
Willie dropped right out of heaven;
All up and down the west coast
ol' Willie was hot stuff,
He stood as tall as ol' Elvis
in that yellar' pick-up truck.

Now a man can drive a Rolls Royce
or a custom Cadillac,
Have tailor-fittin' rags
just a-clinging to his back;
But standin' next to Willie
we're always out of luck,
The girls just wanted Willie
and that yellar' pick-up truck.

He had a fur-covered steering wheel
and a cab full of colored bulbs,
A red-blanket covered seat
and an ashtray full of butts;
A glove compartment filled with
chocolate bars and chewing gum,
In everybody's rainbow was
a yellar' pick-up truck.

I guess all the Elvis music
on that ol' truck radio,
Must have got to Willie and
that young girl down the road;
Or maybe ol' Willie he just
ran right out of luck,
From spendin' too much parking time
with that yellar' pick-up truck.

Now, the ol' truck's gone forever,
but ol' Willie is still around,
You can see him every weekend
drivin' back and forth to town;
But now he drives a station wagon
and it still ain't big enough,
To hold all his kids and memories
from that yellar' pick-up truck.

He had a fur-covered steering wheel
and a cab full of colored bulbs,
A red-blanket covered seat
and an ashtray full of butts;
A glove compartment filled with
chocolate bars and chewing gum,
In everybody's rainbow was
a yellar' pick-up truck.
Yes, in everybody's rainbow was
that yellar' pick-up truck.
