Albert King – Cadillac Assembly Line lyrics

Goin’ to Detroit Michigan,

Girl I can’t take you.

Hey I’m goin’ to Detroit Michigan,

Girl, you got to stay here behind.

Goin’ to get me a job,

On the Cadillac assembly line.

I’m tired of whoopin’ and hollerin’

Up and down the Mississippi road.

Oh I’m tired of whoopin’ and hollerin’

Pickin’ that nasty cotton.

Gonna catch me a bus up North,

I won’t have to keep sayin’ yessir boss.

Solo

Goin’ to Detroit Michigan,

Girl I can’t take you.

Hey I’m goin’ to Detroit Michigan,

Girl, you got to stay here behind.

Goin’ to get me a job,

On the Cadillac assembly line.

Well, girl if you’ll be alright,

And keep your blue jeans zipped up tight

When I make my first check,

I’ll put you on the Delta jet. Hey hey.

I’m gonna send for you darlin’

Won’t you come on home

Solo – vamp out
