Cadillac Assembly Line
Truckload Of Lovin'

“Vado a Detroit, babe, a cercarmi un lavoro alla Cadillac. Non posso portarti con me ora. Sono stanco di penare quaggiù nel Mississippi, costretto a raccogliere quel maledetto cotone…”



“Voglio prendere un bus per il Nord, non voglio più dover dire sempre sissignore, sì padrone… Bene, amore, se ci stai a metterti un paio di blue jeans aderenti, appena prendo la paga ti metto sul primo volo per raggiungermi…”

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
Hey, 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' yes, sir, boss

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
