"My Cadillac Don't Run No More" Music and lyrics by Greg Spence Wolf

My Cadillac Don't Run No More words and music Greg Spence Wolf 

  

My Cadillac, don't run no more, 

It sits in pieces outside my door 

Its rear end is all smashed in 

And my Cadillac don't run no more. 

  

Some son of a gun, pulled a hit and run 

He probably had no insurance 

Now my rear end Is all smashed in

And my Cadillac don't run no more.

  

I always park defensively 

So that nobody will hit me 

I was certain I would not get hit that day, 

It did not work out that way. 

  

My Cadillac don't run no more 

It sits in pieces outside my door 

It's rear end is all smashed in 

And my Cadillac don't run no more. 

  

Now that old car, just good for parts 

To see it there just breaks my heart 

It's transmission won't even start 

Now I got a Redneck Yard. 

  

My Cadillac don't run no more 

It sits in pieces outside my door 

It's rear end is all smashed in 

And my Cadillac don't run no more. 

  

Upbeat gospel singing/ bluegrass picking style 

GGGG GGGG (My Cadillac Don't Run No More) 

CCCC GGGG (It sits in pieces outside my door) 

GGGG Em Em Em Em (It's rear end is all smashed in) 

GGDD GGGG (And my Cadillac don't run no more)

The first G in GGGG actually hits on the syllable "lac" in the lyric "Cadillac".

In other words, "My ca dil" are pickup notes sung as the last three eighth nots of the previous measure.

    I am working on an arrangement for the song that can be overdubbed. The time signature will be a quarter note equals 1 second. Each verse and chorus is 32 beats/eight measures long. Most verses have three pick up notes on the last three eigth notes of the previous verse/chorus (IE My3& cad4 dil4& )Lac 1 The arrangement will go like this 1st -Instrumental intro Extremely close to the chorus 2nd - Sung chorus 3rd -"Some son of a gun" 4th - Sung chorus 5th - instrumental solos 6th - instrumental solos 7th - "I always park" 8th - Chorus 9th instrumental solos/gospel bluegrass style 10th - instrumental solos/gospel bluegrass style 11th - Now that okd car" 12th - Chorus 13th - dramatic and slowed down chorus with improvisation on the part of t he singer END Bow

         And I have always wanted to do a professional recording o     I have been rehearsing, recording, overdubbing, mixing and exporting it for a few months in my spare time and have come up with a lead guitar and lead vocal arrangement that is going to be my blueprint for a multitrack recording.      The most recent mix is very unedited which makes it lively and hectic. It was made with just my computer's built in computer mics and two midi tracks playing organ as the rhythm track. The midi was set to one quater note equals one second and I pain stakingly edited the midi till it matched my preferred chord strums when I am performing it. I then used that arrangement to sing lead and echo vocals. I had a lot of fun improvising and also improvising with my ukulele and melodica on the overdubs but for now I am sharing the rugh ersion for people who want to enjoy it.  My goal is to produce a professional track by arranging a version of Cadillac on the computer and in my head that can be tight enough to be overdubbed. Then I caan hire a banjo player, a bassist, a guitarist, a violinist and a tap dancer (wait, the tap dancer position has been filled) and a female vocalist to do the sing along echo part. I am now in the process of overdubbing with real mics.in my bedroom. https://gregspencewolf.com/track/3056256/my-cadillac-don-t-run-no-more-04092022 https://gregspencewolf.com/album/2190844/the-adventures-of-greg-spence-wolf
