G


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

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

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

                                  G
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

                             G
And down to Box Hill they did ride


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

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

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

                                          G
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"

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


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

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

                                          C
Shotgun blast hit his chest,.. left nothing inside

                                         G
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

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


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

                                    G
Beats a '52 Vincent and a red-headed girl

                                          C
Now Nortons and Indians and Greeveses won't do

                                          G
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

                              G
And he gave her his Vincent to ride
