Subject: Lyr Req: V8 Blues
From: GUEST,Babs
Date: 08 Feb 04 - 11:45 PM

Im looking for the name of the song and the lyrics for what I think is called "V8 Blues" or "I got the V8 Blues"
I know some of it goes as follows:

I got tired of comin in late
went right out and bought a new V-8

Shake Rattle and ramble, I got the V-8 blues, I got the V-8 blues

Took a drink of whiskey
gave me such a nerve
Shot it up to 90 goin' around a curve

Shake rattle and ramble, I got the v8 blues, I got the V-8 Blues

Met another car and how we hit
Nearly rolled a mile almost broke my neck

Shake rattle and ramble, I got the V-8 blues, I got the V-8 Blues

Tell you boys you better get it in your bean
You can't mix liquor and gasoline

Shake rattle and ramble, I got the V-8 Blues, I got the V-Blues

Any help is much appreciated =)

Thanks,
Babs

The only references I have found is to "V8 Ford Blues" by Johnny Winter. No lyrics though.

Thanks for the attempt, Eugene =)

Most of what I came across with the name "V8 Ford Blues" is a Blues song, not the one Im looking for.
I came across two names of some people who 'might' of sang it.

"The Three Tobacco Tags" and "The Wilders". I found a little information on each, and no lyrics. I did find a 30 second clip of the song by "The Three Tobacco Tags". It is called V-8 Blues and does have part of the words listed.

The serch continues...

I pieced this together from a couple of sound samples:
    I got so tired of comin' in late,
    Went right out and bought a new V-8.
    CHORUS: I got the V-8 blues. I got the V-8 blues.
    Shake-a-rattle an' ramble. I got the V-8 blues.

    Started down the road for a little ride.
    That new V-8 was my joy and pride.

    [Took] a little drink and it gave me such a nerve,
    Shot it up to 90 when I started 'round the curve.

    Round that curve goin' lickety-split,
    Met another fella comin'. How we hit!
Sung by The Three Tobacco Tags on the various-artists album "Hillbilly Blues," ASV/Living Era CD #5361, 2001.

It is reissued also on JSP 'Mountain Blues' 4 CD box set - JSP 7740. The first 4 stanzas are as Jim posted above, but I hear the last line of the fourth stanza as 'Met another fellow, boy how we hit!' There are two additional stanzas after those four, similar to those remembered by Babs:

Let me tell you, folks, it was an awful wreck
Rolled about a mile and nearly broke my neck

Chorus

Listen here, boys, you better get it in your bean
You can't mix liquor and gasoline

Chorus

--Stewie.

The tune is also used in "Get Your Head In Here" also by the Tobacco Tags. Both are nice little ditties.
