No Money Down

This song is by Otis Spann and appears on the Compilation album Ebony and Ivory Blues (2012).

This song is a cover of "No Money Down" by Chuck Berry.
As I was motivatin' back in town
I saw a Cadillac sign sayin' "No Money Down"
So I eased on my brakes and I pulled in the drive
Gunned my motor twice, then I walked inside
Dealer came to me, said "Trade in your Ford
And I'll put you in a car that'll eat up the road
Just tell me what you want and then sign that line
And I'll have it brought down to you in hour's time"

I'm gonna get me a car and I'll be headed on down the road
Then I won't have to worry about that broken-down, ragged Ford

"Well, Mister, I want a yellow convertible four-door de Ville
With a Continental spare and a wide chrome wheel
I want power steering and power brakes
I want a powerful motor with a jet off-take
I want air condition, I want automatic heat
I want a full Murphy bed in my back seat
I want shortwave radio, I want TV and a phone
You know I gotta talk to my baby when I'm ridin' alone"

Yes, I'm gonna get that car and I'm gonna head on down the road
Yeah, then I won't have to worry about that broken-down, ragged Ford

"I want four carburetors and two straight exhausts
I'm burnin' aviation fuel, no matter what the cost
I want railroad air horns and a military spark
And I want a five-year guarantee on everything I got
I want ten dollar deductible, I want twenty dollar notes
I want thirty thousand liability", that's all she wrote

I got me a car and I'm headed on down the road
No money down
I don't have to worry about that broken-down, ragged Ford
