Five Best...Cadillac Songs
This list is in honor of Bob Dylan's new commercial.
#5. "Cadillac Daddy (Mr. Highway Man)" by Howlin' Wolf
Look-it-here man, please check this oil
Look-it here man, please check this oil
Just a long Cadillac, bound to try out your soil
#4. “Big Black Cadillac Blues” by Lightin’ Hopkins
That Cadillac wouldn’t run for me,
And it won’t run for you.
#3. “Brand New Cadillac” by The Clash (written by Vince Taylor)
My baby rolled up in a brand new Cadillac,
Yes, she did.
My baby drove up in a brand new Cadillac,
She said, "Hey, come here, Daddy!"
"I ain't never coming back!"
#2. “Maybellene” by Chuck Berry
Pink in the mirror on top of the hill,
It's just like swallowin' up a medicine pill.
First thing I saw that Cadillac grille
Doin' a hundred and ten gallopin' over that hill.
Off hill curve, a downhill stretch,
Me and that Cadillac neck by neck.
#1. “Talkin’ World War III Blues” by Bob Dylan
Well, I seen a Cadillac window uptown
And there was nobody around,
I got into the driver's seat
And I drove 42nd Street
In my Cadillac.
Good car to drive after a war.
There are many great Cadillac songs that I didn't include on this list, but can be found here.
