Said Red Molly to James "That's a fine motorbike
Make a girl could feel special on any such a light"
Said James to Red Molly "My hat's off to you
It's a Vincent Black Lightning, 1952
And I've seen you on the corners and the cafés it seems
Red hair and black leather, my favourite colour schemes"
Oh and he pulled her on behind
And they went down to Box Hill they did ride
Said James to Red Molly, "Here's a ring for your right hand
But I will tell you in honest I'm a dangerous man
As I've fought with the law since I was seventeen
And I robbed many men to get my Vincеnt machine
And I've turned twеnty-one, and I might make twenty-two
But I don't mind dying, if it's for the love of you
Oh but if fate should break my stride
I'm gonna give you my Vincent to ride"
"Oh Come down, come down, come down," said Sergeant McRae
"Where they've taken young James for armed robbery
Shotgun blast to his chest, left nothing inside
Oh, come down, come down to his dying bedside"
When they brought him to the hospital there wasn't much left
He was running out of road, he was running out of breath
Oh but he smiled, oh to see her cry
He said "I'm gonna give you my Vincent"
Said James, to Red Molly "There ain't nothing in this world
Beats a '52 Vincent and a red-headed girl
Now Greevses and Nortons and Indians won't do
Oh They don't have a soul like a Vincent '52"
Oh and He reached for her hand and he gave her the key
He said "I have no further use for these
I see angels on Ariels in leather and chrome
Swooping down from heaven to carry me home"
And he gave her one last kiss, oh then he died
Said I'ma gonna give
I'ma gonna give (x5)
I'ma gonna give my Vincent to ride
