Eastern Appalachian Roadside Art

This song is by David Wilcox and appears on the live album East Asheville Hardware (1996).

Well I'm gonna drive to West Virginia
Buy myself a shack
Put my good car in the front yard
Block it up on jacks
Then I'm gonna take me a couple wheels off
Roll 'em down into the creek
I'm gonna bust a couple windows
Fix it with a plastic sheet

I got tired of working for nothing
Working every day
Bills made me a poor man
But I found a better way
I just built myself a sculpture
A monument to Chevrolet
And now I've got a gallery
Where my front yard used to lay

Well I'm working on a '49 Ford
I got it hidden 'round in the backyard
But it's only going to be a few days
'Til it's rusted just enough to display
And when I roll it on down by the road
I'll have a monument to Henry Ford

Yeah, modern art

So bring your car to West Virginia
Buy your own favorite spot
Get you a big old front yard
Start yourself a parking lot
You can roll 'em up on one side
Roll 'em over onto the roof
You can push 'em down into the creek bed
You can leave 'em on the avenue

But hey now, don't you go thinkin' that's just a car
Listen here buddy, that's a work of art
That was America's finest form of transportation
Don't you think it needs just a little celebration
That's all I'm trying to do

Brought to you by Eastern Mountain Appalachian Roadside Modern Art
Yeah, modern art
