Capo on 1st fret

A//// D/ /
See that girl who comes here nightly (dum dum dum durang)
Well I reckon she's cool and I reckon rightly (dum dum dum durang)
She's good looking and I'm not frightened (dum dum dum durang)
I'm gonna show you why they call me lightning (dum dum dum durang)

Hey little girl who's dancin' so lightly (dum dum dum durang)
My XKE is shinin brightly (dum dum dum durang)
The noose around us is slowly tightning (dum dum dum durang)
I'm gonna show you why they call me lightning (dum dum dum durang)

I'm fast as can be (dum dum dum durang)
Don't you watch me and see (dum dum dum durang)
You can't catch me (dum dum dum durang)
What you get for free (dum dum dum durang)

guitar solo
