Now Daddy ran whisky in a big black Dodge
Bought it at an auction at the Masons Lodge
Johnson County sheriff painted on the side
Just shot a coat of primer then he looked inside.'

Around my area the term "shot" is really common. It is used whenever anything is thrown, pitched or covered with something. It is used in a bunch of different ways. So I always took it as he coated the car with primer. I am in Western KY and it is a pretty common saying around here. I have to admit I am reading this in a rush. Am I correct that the word in question is "shot"?
