Brian Setzer ’49 Mercury Blues Lyrics

February 22, 2008

49 Mercury Blues Lyrics

 I’m broken down
On the side of the road
Damn brakes locked up in the rain
Smoke’s pourin’ out
From under the hood
I’m stuck on the highway again
I’m too young to quit
Too old to change
Baby what am I gonna do?
I got the chopped top, slammed down
’49 Mercury blues

Can’t find a phone
Can’t hitch a ride
Who would stop for me anyway?
You would think that after all of
These cars I’ve owned
I would break down
And join triple A
I’m too young to quit
I’m too old to change
Baby what am I gonna do?
I got the chopped top, slammed down
’49 Mercury blues

I got the ’49 Mercury blues
By now you’d think I’ve paid all
My dues
Just think of all the trouble
That car is puttin’ me through

I guess like a tooth
That needsto get filled
It’s gonna hurt
And you’re gonna get drilled
And once you get it fixed
It happens all over again
I’m too young to quit
I’m too old to change
Baby what am I gonna do?
I got the chopped top,
’49 Mercury blues

James Dean’s 1949 Mercury Coupe in Rebel Without a Cause

James Dean was the very symbol of the bad boy for the 50’s generation and in his movie, “Rebel Without A Cause,”  the car he drove was a 49 Mercury.  Customized for the movie, the 49 Mercury was dechromed.  When the movie debuted, James Dean was already dead, and the movie inspired a new generation of teens to love this old classic.  In fact, the 1949 Mercury is considered by most to be one of the most famous movie cars in all time history.

1949 Mercury Coupe

February 17, 2008

Are you looking to get your own custom 1949 Mercury coupe?    Check out the body on our world exclusive 49 Mercury body!   This baby is hot!    We can even paint it for you and get you set up with a chassis and a floorpan! 

Mercury is an automobile marque of the Ford Motor Company founded in 1939 to market entry-level-luxury cars slotted between Ford-branded regular models and Lincoln-branded luxury vehicles, similar to General Motors’ Buick (and former Oldsmobile) brand and Chrysler’s Chrysler brand.    The 49 Coupe was the most excellent, in our opinion, of the Mercury line.  It had the 1930-40’s gangster mob feel to it that made you feel like you were rolling down the streets of Chicago in 1949!
