Car Wash, by Bruce Springsteen, from the album Tracks

Well my name is Catherine LeFevre
I work at the Astrowash on Sunset and Vine
I drop my kids at school in the morning
And I pick them up at Mary’s just ‘fore suppertime

Well I work down at the carwash
For a dollar and a dime

Guitar Man, by Elvis Presley, from the album Guitar Man

Well, I quit my job down at the car wash,
Left my mama a goodbye note,
By sundown I’d left Kingston,
With my guitar under my coat

Something to Lose, by Corey Smith, from the album In the Mood

Soap, scrub, rinse, clean and vacuum too
Washed off that note someone wrote
on the dirty window
Now my Beretta’s lookin’ good as new
Yeah, just for you it’s lookin’ good as new

All I Wanna Do, by Sheryl Crow, from the album Tuesday Night Music Club

We are drinking beer at noon on Tuesday
In a bar that faces a giant car wash
The good people of the world are washing their cars
On their lunch break, hosing and scrubbing
As best they can in skirts in suits …
… Otherwise the bar is ours,
The day and the night and the car wash too
The matches and the Buds and the clean
and dirty cars
