Blues #4: Mustang Sally*

Mustang Sally
     [in my days of car dreaming]

Think You’d Better Slow That Mustang Down
     [in my boy days when my hair was true]

Mustang Sally
     [in my hand her skin went on for miles]

Think You’d Better Slow That Mustang Down
     [I was caught in her blue Chevrolet eyes]

You Been Running All Over The Town Now

     even in a moment of calm reflection or maybe just
     eating a sandwich or thinking something up
     and then forgetting it or maybe even later after
     everyone in the house has gone to sleep and quake
     electrically like stones in a death bed

Oh! I Guess I'll Have To Put Your Flat Feet On The Ground
     [I felt her moving as she rolled away]

*Mack Rice
