Maybelline Lyrics

by Conway Twitty

As I was motivatin' over the hill I saw Maybelline in a Coupe DeVille
Cadillac movin' down an open road nothin' outrunnin' my V-8 Ford
Cadillac doin' bout ninety-five bumper to bumper rollin' side to side

Maybelline why can't you be true oh Maybelline why can't you be true
You done started back doin' the things you used to do

Well the Cadillac moved up ahead of the Ford
The Ford got hot and wouldn't do no more
It done got cloudy and started to rain I tooted my horn for the passin' lane
The rain water blown all under my hood I knew that were doin' my motor good
Maybelline why can't you be true...
[ guitar ]
Well now the motor cooled down and the heat went down
And that's when I heard that highway sound
Cadillac settin' like a ton of lead a hundred and ten a half a mile ahead
Cadillac lookin' like it's sittin' still I caught Maybelline at the top of the hill
Maybelline why can't you be true...
