Maybellene
Chuck Berry Lyrics


Maybellene, why can't you be true
Oh Maybellene, why can't you be true
You've started back doin' the things you used to do

As I was motivatin' over the hill
I saw Mabellene in a Coup de Ville
A Cadillac arollin' on the open road
Nothin' will outrun my V8 Ford
The Cadillac doin' about ninety-five
She's bumper to bumper, rollin' side by side
Maybellene
Why can't you be true
Oh Maybellene, why can't you be true
You've started back doin' the things you used to do

The Cadillac pulled up ahead of the Ford
The Ford got hot and wouldn't do no more
It then got cloudy and started to rain
I tooted my horn for a passin' lane
The rainwater blowin' all under my hood
I know that I was doin' my motor good
Maybellene
Why can't you be true
Oh Maybellene, why can't you be true
You've started back doin' the things you used to do

Oh, Maybellene
Why can't you be true
Oh Maybellene, why can't you be true
You've started back doin' the things you used to do

The motor cooled down the heat went down
And that's when I heard that highway sound
The Cadillac asittin' like a ton of lead
A hundred and ten half a mile aheadv The Cadillac lookin' like it's sittin' still
And I caught Mabellene at the top of the hill
Maybellene
Why can't you be true
Oh Maybellene, why can't you be true
You've started back doin' the things you used to do

David Lee Roth

@William Whitman I agree with that, I call Chuck Berry Father of Rock n' Roll instead of King

William Whitman

And nothing from Elvis? You aren't DLR, just using his name.
Elvis was swagger and hips. His curled lip, and how cool he was? You don't know about how the girls and people would rush that stage and the crowds and crowds and crowds? You never knew about the huge amount of mega fans he had? Before Beatlemania there was Elvis.
His perfect hair. He would dance around the way he did, like nobody else, and his hair was always perfect.
Elvis Presley was the coolest person ever recorded.
Everybody wanted to be like Elvis, hands down. Biggest thing ever.
Elvis Presley was The King of Rock and Roll. And I don't think Chuck Berry would disagree with that. Hail hail rock and roll. Jackie Wilson didn't.
Anyways, remember The Twist and how big that was? Just wondering if you knew anything about that, lol. Not knowing anything about Elvis, I was just thinking probably not.
