Waxahachi Drag Race - Ronnie Dawson

Waxahachi Drag Race

Ronnie Dawson

(Ronnie Dawson, Yep Roc Records YEP 2012, 1999)

The County C Rebels were a rowdy bunch
There was gonna be trouble, I had a hunch
The toughest guy, he threw the first punch
He hit me so hard, that I nearly lost my lunch

Well, I'm dragging tonight, and I do mean fast
Well, I'm always first, I ain't never last

Well, this night fight was a big disgrace
I challenged that sucker to a big drag race
If I lose this race, I'm gonna dump this car
I'm gonna trade it in for a Fender guitar

Well, I'm dragging tonight, and I do mean fast
Well, I'm always first, I ain't never last

[Guitar solo]

Well, I'm dragging tonight, and I do mean fast
Well, I'm always first, I ain't never last

At the party tonight, we started this race
Flying south at a blistering pace
I threw it into third, I knew he'd never catch me
I lost him in the dust, oh down by Waxahachi

Well, I'm dragging tonight, and I do mean fast
Well, I'm always first, I ain't never last

[Guitar solo]

Well, I'm dragging tonight, and I do mean fast
Well, I'm always first, I ain't never last

Well, my tyres are a smoking, they're ready to fry
My Hot Rod Ford even started to fly
Getting even faster, we left the ground
Like a jet plane, at the speed of sound

Well, I'm dragging tonight, and I do mean fast
Well, I'm always first, I ain't never last
