....a little blues tune called "No Money Down." The version I have is by Chuck Berry. I don't know if he's the originator of the song...but it goes back a ways...he recorded it about 1955, or thereabouts.

I forget how to do the blue clicky thing, but if you go to (or paste) http://come.to/mr_rockandroll, and click on "Lyrics," you will find the words to "No Money Down." Couldn't find you any chords though...Chuck Berry's "No Money Down" originally appeared on his album After School Sessions, released in 1957. Also on the compilation The Chess Box (Chuck Berry), released much later, of course. It's a typical blues number ...pick a key and play the I-IV-V pattern and it should come to you. Hope this helps....

Regards, Neil

NO MONEY DOWN
As sung by Chuck Berry on numerous albums.

As I was motorvatin' – back in town,
I saw a Cadillac sign said – "No money down"
So I eased on my brakes – and I pulled in the drive,.
Gunned my motor twice – then I walked inside.
Dealer came to me – said, "Trade in your Fo'd,
And I'll put you in a car – that'll eat up the road.
Just tell me what you want – and then sign that line,
And I'll have it brought down to you – in a hour's time."

I'm gonna get me a car and I'll be headed on down the road.
Then I won't have to worry about that broken-down ragged Fo'd.

"Well, mister, I want a yellow convertible – Fo'd Eau De Ville(?)
With a continental spare – and a wire-chrome wheel.
I want power steerin' – and power brakes.
I want a powerful motor – with a jet off-take.
I want air condition; – I want automatic heat.
I want a full Murphy bed – in my back seat.
I want short-wave radio; – I want TV and a phone.
You know I gotta talk to my baby – when I'm ridin' alone.

Yes, I'm 'on' get that car and I'm gon' head on down the road.
Yeah, then I won't have to worry about that broken-down ragged Fo'd.

I want four carburetors – and two straight exhausts.
I'm burnin' aviation fuel – no matter what the cost.
I want railroad air horns – and a military spot,
And I want a five-year guarantee – on everything I got.
I want ten-dollar deductible; – I want twenty-dollar notes.
I want thirty-thousand liability; – that's all she wrote.

I got me a car and I'm headed on down the road. (No money down!)
I don't have to worry 'bout that broken-down ragged Fo'd.
