12-beat intro. Play 3-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
This song is in 3/4 waltz time.
Young Johnnie Steele has an Oldsmobile.
He loves a dear littie girl.
She is the queen of his gas machine.
She has his heart in a whirl.
Now when they go for a spin, you know,
She tries to learn the auto, so.
He let's her steer while he gets her ear,
And whispers soft and low...
Come away with me, Lucille,
In my merry Oldsmobile.
Down the road of life we'll fly,
Automobubbling, you and I.
To the church we'll swiftly steal.
Then our wedding bells will peal.
You can go as far as you like with me,
In my merry Oldsmobile.
