mercury blues lyrics – david lindley

if i had money, i tell you what i’d do
i’d go downtown and buy a mercury or two
i’m crazy ’bout a mercury
i’m crazy ’bout a mercury
i’m gonna buy me a mercury and cruise it up and down the road

the girl i love, i stole her from a friend
he got lucky, stole her back again
’cause she knew he had a mercury
she knew he had a mercury
i’m gonna buy me a mercury and cruise it up and down the road

hey now mama, you look so fine
ridin’ ’round in your mercury 49
i’m crazy ’bout a mercury
i’m crazy ’bout a mercury
i’m gonna buy me a mercury and cruise it up and down the road

my baby went out, she didn’t stay long
she bought herself a mercury, come a-cruisin’ home
i’m crazy ’bout a mercury
i’m crazy ’bout a mercury
i’m gonna buy me a mercury and cruise it up and down the road

if i had money, i tell you what i’d do
i’d go downtown and buy a mercury or two
i’m crazy ’bout a mercury
i’m crazy ’bout a mercury
i’m gonna buy me a mercury and cruise it up and down the road
i’m gonna buy me a mercury and cruise it up and down the road
