about

This song was originally recorded by Steve's mother's first cousin, Jumpin' Gene Simmons, on Sun Records in the mid-50s. Never released and partially destroyed. Brian Setzer later heard the fragment and wanted to record it on his Sun tribute album. Gene could not remember the missing parts of the song by that point and asked Setzer to write a third verse and complete it. Gene died about a decade ago so this is our tribute to cousin Gene. (And yes if you were wondering, Gene Simmons of KISS did get his stage name from Jumpin Gene).

lyrics

Well, I went out cattin’ on a Friday night
I was dressed to kill, I was a-lookin’ for a fight
I looked in the mirror, just a-waitin’ for the light
I saw a hot chick that really looked right

I’m draggin’, draggin’ down Main once more
With a peroxide blonde in a hopped up model Ford

Well, I pulled on over, she asked me for a ride
She moved real close, sittin’ side-by-side
I looked out the window and to my surprise
Was a hotrod Ford just a-passin’ me by

Well, we drug down Main, just to make a scene
I barked my tires when the light turned green
I slapped it to the floor, let out on the clutch
And what was left on the road, well - it wasn't very much
We flew out of town, we were side by side
Twin carburetors were open wide
Tires were smoke, it started to whine
I’m tellin’ ya, that blonde, she left me way behind!

Now I’m never-never-never draggin’ down Main no more, ooh-ooh
With a peroxide blonde in a hopped up model Ford.
