(sung by Jewel on "Music For Our Mother Ocean II")
This is a slow blues in 6/8. I've arbitrarily given the chords in E, but any key is okay.. Bass is the usual I-I- biii-I blues line: [i.e. on low E |--0--5---3--0--|] Careful, although the instrumental sections are in the typical 12-bar blues, the verses often omit the V chord.
He's lonely and he cruises real low.
That's my V-12 Cadillac, you know he's on the go.
On down to the ocean, surfboard by my side
E [walk bass up to A chord]
He's my V-12 Cadillac with deluxe power glide.
A[IV chord] E
I check the ocean, yeah, from atop of the hill.
We're going surfing in my Coupe de Ville.
I pull out on the freeway, I put my Caddy in low.
Then this real cute guy passed me, but my horn just wouldn't blow.
So, I pulled up beside him, looked over real cool.
Then he rolled down his window and he said:
"Hey baby, your Caddy's a Jewel."
