The Tough Sell

This song is by Drive-By Truckers and appears on the album Gangstabilly (1998).

"She's a beaut, yes sir, she is," said EZ Dan
Fifty five, a bad age, smelling of Brut from Faberge and sweat
EZ Dan don't bathe a lot these days and why the hell should he anyway?
"She's got a few miles on her, but then again, who don't?" he said with a slight chuckle
The recent Binaca blast still lingering on his breath
"And besides, them's highway miles"

I shifted my weight from one foot to the other
It certainly wasn't the car of my dreams, but the price was right
And EZ Dan assured me that the mid-70's were a particularly nice period for Chrysler products in general
"And this one was a Volare"
And besides, finally having an eight-track means I can play all them tapes I ain't been able to play
Since high-school

So we stuffed EZ Dan's body in the trunk and hauled ass out of town
But somewhere just past the middle of nowhere the fuel pump blew
And the oil pump too, and the piston rods hurled straight through the engine block
Dropping oil, gasoline, water, and anti-freeze onto the Alabama red clay below

Ain't that a bitch?
I ain't never been lucky with love
I ain't never been lucky with love
I ain't never been lucky with love
I ain't never been lucky with love
