Subject: 'Super Blue' by David Munyon.
written by David Munyon, Scott Sherrill, and Don
Recorded by David Munyon on the cd 'Acrylic Teepees'
on Glitterhouse Records, number GRCD 393
Tab by Caroline.
Chrome and Blue Fire on a rainy night in 1966.
Everybody in this whole town says,
'There goes that kid.'
You could hear him coming seven blocks away,
Always playing 'Peggy Sue'
And written there on his license plate,
It said......Super Blue,
Am G C
SUPER BLUE....AH.. SUPER BLUE.
Ah. Nothing could ever slow him down,
Not even that one girl's kiss.
There really was no rival for that 396.
He was always talking about California,
And the things he was going to do,
But even today, down at the stop and save,
You could still see Super Blue.
SUPER BLUE......Ah...SUPER BLUE.
Zero to sixty in 3.9.
140 at the quarter mile line.
He was really flying through the cold night air.
Sometimes he wonders as the years go past,
D G G7
How'd he ever go so fast and get nowhere.
But he still keeps it shining like a diamond,
Here in 1994,
And drives around listenin' for 'Peggy Sue'
But he don't hear her anymore.
Everynow and then he leaves a little rubber,
But nothin' like he used to do,
And the kids all say who is that old man,
In that cool Super Blue.
SUPER BLUE.....AH..Super Blue.
