Song Description

Sexy, hip alt.country song about a female truck driver who challenges her male rival to a drag race. The tight vocals that kick off the song create a tension that's enhanced by double entendre and dynamic shifts.

Story Behind the Song

This song was influenced by Bakersfield-era songwriter Kay Adams, who acheieved a certain amount of fame in the 1960's for her truck-driving songs. "Davy" is part of a full-length concept album entitled "Brake Lights" which is an homage to the American r

Lyrics

"Davy" (c) 2003 Hart, Woodward, Betty Troublesome Music (ASCAP)

Davy, you let the wheels go 'round.
Davy, you been a-coverin' ground.
You knock it, and you shake it.
You're a-lettin' that engine pound.

Davy, it's been a downhill drive.
Davy, you're doin' seventy-five.
Boy, you'd better brake it just to
get around my curves alive.

Well, the piston pumps, and the rubber burns.
Your heart skips a beat when you're takin' them turns.
Look out, boy, better slow it down
'cause you're ridin' that rig right into my town.

Davy, you're at the county line.
Davy, and when my whitewalls whine,
boy, you won't mistake it.
You'll be lookin' for an exit sign.

Davy, I'm a blacktop queen.
Davy, I got a wide machine.
Lord, you're gonna rake it
when you're scrapin' that shoulder clean.

Well, the piston pumps, and the rubber burns.
Your heart skips a beat when you're takin' them turns.
Look out, boy, better slow it down
'cause you're ridin' that rig right into my town.

Davy, I'm on a shotgun spree.
Davy, you can't run from me.
I'm gonna heartbreak it
in my cherry-red '63.
