Once we rode together
In a metal firecracker
You told me I was your queen
You told me I was your biker
You told me I was your everything
Once I was in your blood
And you were obsessed with me
You wanted to paint my picture
You wanted to undress me
You wanted to see me in your future
All I ask
Don't tell anybody the secrets
Don't tell anybody the secrets
I told you
All I ask
Don't tell anybody the secrets
Don't tell anybody the secrets
I told you

Once you held me so tight
I thought I'd lose my mind
You said I rocked your world
You said it was for all time
You said that I would always be your girl
We'd put on ZZ Top
And turn em up real loud
I used to think you were strong
I used to think you were proud
I used to think nothing could go wrong
All I ask
Don't tell anybody the secrets
Don't tell anybody the secrets
I told you
All I ask
Don't tell anybody the secrets
I told you

something about her annoys me and I can't quite pin it down, and it's hit and miss. I love one song hate the next. Not liking this one
Lucinda's passionate voice, and Steve Earle's strong guitar - what a potent combination!
Her lyrics are biting and cogent. She was hitting on all cylinders with "Car Wheels On A Gravel Road", and this is one of the best cuts from the disk. She continues to prove that she is one of the Country's finest songwriters. "We put on ZZTop and turned it up real loud......" Kewl.
With this one, she uncorked the best album of the 90s. Not just her best, the best. IMHO, of course. ;)
I heard Lucinda say in concert once that Metal Firecracker is what she called her tourbus. Looking forward to seeing her open for Neil Young this summer.
Some of the best from tough and sweet Lucinda. Thanks, again, RP. :clap:
