Answer
Hi Penny
Any chance your mother-in-law was a blues fan?
That lyric comes from the song "Gonna Ride To Your Funeral in V-8 Ford"
It's comes up around the 2:00 mark.
That's the only song I can think of that has those words in it.

Thanks for asking,

Expertise

I can answer questions about pop music from the 1950's, 1960's, 1970's and 1980's. I can help track down hard to find songs based on lyric fragments or other minimal information. I was an expert in this field but due to a family situation, was away from e-mail for a couple of weeks and forgot to put in a vacation listing with AllExperts.

Experience

I have been answering questions for this site for a few years. It would be nice to be reinstated. I have no idea how many questions I have answered but many people have written to me to say how I have touched their lives by helping them locate a song that is important to them or a loved one.
