[Verse 1]~
Says Red Molly to James,.. "That's a fine motorbike

Oh,.. a girl could feel special on any suchlike"

Said James to Red Molly,.. "Well my hat's off to you

It's a Vincent Black Lightning,.. 1952

        D                           C        G
And I've seen you at the corners and cafes it seems

D                              C                G
Red hair and black leather,.. my favourite colour scheme"

      Am              C
And he pulled her on behind

And down to Box Hill they did ride

[Verse 2]~
Said James to Red Molly,.. "Well here's a ring for your right hand

Though I'll tell you in earnest,.. I'm a dangerous man

For I've fought with the law since I was seventeen

And I robbed many a man to get my Vincent machine

   D                                 C           G
And now I'm twenty-one years,.. I might make twenty-two

     D                     C               G
And I don't mind dying,.. but for the love of you

      Am                   C
And if fate should break my stride"

He said,.. "I'll leave you my Vincent to ride"

[Verse 3]~
"Come down,.. come down,.. Red Molly",.. called Sergeant McRae

"For they've taken young James Adie for armed robbery

Shotgun blast hit his chest,.. left nothing inside

Oh,.. come down,.. Red Molly,.. to his dying bedside"

        D                           C           G
When she came to the hospital,.. there wasn't much left

      D                           C              G
He was running out of road,.. he was running out of breath

      Am                C
But he smiled to see her cry

He said,.. "I'll leave you my Vincent to ride"

[Verse 4]~
Said James,.. "In my opinion,.. there's nothing in this world

Beats a '52 Vincent and a red-headed girl

Now Nortons and Indians and Greeveses won't do

Oh,.. they don't have a soul like a Vincent '52"

  D                           C               G
He reached for her hand and he slipped her the keys

  D                          C       G
He says,.. "I've got no further use for these

     D                     C           G
I see angels on Ariels with leather and chrome

D                            C        G
Swooping down from heaven to carry me home"

      Am                         C
And he gave her one last kiss and died

And he gave her his Vincent to ride
