TITLE: Rapid Roy (the Stock Car Boy)
Lyrics and Chords

Oh Rapid Roy that stock car boy, he too much to believe
You know he always got an extra pack of cigarettes rolled up in his T-shirt sleeve
He got a tattoo on his arm that say "Baby", he got another one that just say "Hey"
But every Sunday afternoon he is a dirt track demon in a '57 Chevrolet

/ E - A E / A E F# B / E E7 A F# / E F#7 B E /

Oh Rapid Roy that stock car boy, he's the best driver in the land
He say that he learned to race a stock car by runnin' shine outa Alabam'
Oh the Demolition Derby and the Figure Eight is easy money in the bank
Compared to runnin' from the man in Oklahoma City with a 500 gallon tank


Yeah Roy so cool, that racin' fool he don't know what fear's about
He do a hundred thirty mile an hour smilin' at the camera with a toothpick in his mouth
He got a girl back home name of Dixie Dawn, but he got honeys all along the way
And you oughta hear 'em screamin' for that dirt track demon in a '57 Chevrolet
