So a shabby little jitney that has been modified for speed passes him in his fancy new car."Souped up" means modified and enhanced to make it more powerful.
I am inclined to agree with this, although I have no evidence to back it up.Thanks
but I am looking for what he meant by a "jitney". I have looked the word up and everything I found refers to a small type of bus. I think Chuck Berry would not be referring to a bus but some other type of vehicle probably a hot rod of some type.
Jitney as I understand it from my grandfather refers to a vehicle that transports people for a low cost, like a taxi or a bus. Or just a low cost vehicle.Hi
Does anyone know what Chuck Berry was referring to as a Jitney in the songs "You Cant Catch Me" and "Goes To Show You Never Can Tell"? All I can find is that its a bus I doubt he meant that.
