I found Canary Yellow Car here.

CANARY YELLOW CAR

Been days gone by
Since you pulled out the drive
Without a word at all
Where in the world'd you go
I'd sure like to know
In your canary yellow car
I went up to highway nine
Cruisin' for a while
Passed by an old freight yard
Heard a whistle blow
From a locomo
Comin' in from far

But I didn't know where you was
Thought maybe you got lost
I had no way to call
Somebody saw you last
Up on the overpass
Taillights in the dark
In your canary yellow car

Must've drove all night
Cut the lights on bright
White lines over tar
The way that motor run
I never had to worry none
In my canary yellow car

Baby that's alright
You had yourself a time
Go on the way you are
But honey you should know
You can't compare a home
To a canary yellow car

'Cause I didn't know where you was
Thought maybe you got lost
I had no way to call
Somebody saw you last
Up on the overpass
Taillights in the dark
In your canary yellow car
In your canary yellow car
In your canary yellow car

Subject: Lyr Add: WHAT KATY DID (Gurf Morlix/Ray Bonneville
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 29 Oct 10 - 04:59 PM

Here's my transcription from the sound file at Ray Bonneville's web site:


WHAT KATY DID
Gurf Morlix and Ray Bonneville

1. A low moon was crawlin' slow out across the window.
I hung up the phone, shook my head, tryin' to make sense of it.
Something about it was all wrong. It kept me up for a long time.
I tried hard to understand it but I came up empty.

CHORUS: What Katy did, can you keep it to yourself,
If I tell you what Katy did?
What Katy did, can you keep it hid
If I tell you what Katy did?

2. Headlights came around the bend, caught her out there walkin'.
She had somethin' in her hand. It was glitterin'.
Her head down low like she like she was lost, had no place to go,
She might not 'a' been thinkin' straight is all I can say. CHORUS

3. Willie came by. He said it wasn't true. It's a lie and there's no proof.
A made-up story you're a fool to buy. That's what he told me lookin' me straight in the eye.
All right then, maybe you can help me. Something I'd like for you to tell me.
Her shoes were all muddy and there'd been no rain. What do you say to that, my friend? CHORUS

4. Have you ever woke up from a dream, sweat all over your skin?
You drink coffee strong and black, thinkin' the dream's never comin' back.
If fate was wrote on a page somewhere, who'd ever know there'd been a change out there?
The night was dark. The moon was low, like I told you before.

CHORUS: What Katy did, can you keep it to yourself
If I tell you what Katy did?
What Katy did, can you keep it hid
If I tell you what Katy did?
What Katy did, can you keep a tight lid
If I tell you what Katy did?


[On Ray Bonneville's album "Goin' by Feel" (2007) and on the compilation "Red House 25: A Silver Anniversary Retrospective" (2008).]
