The Great Filling Station Holdup
I pulled into the regular pump, I was feelin' quite at ease
I rolled down my window and told the man, "Fifty cents worth, please"
Then out jumped a partner with his trusty pellet gun
He said, "Boy, this is a holdup, keep pumpin' and don't run"

And now I wish I was somewhere other than here
Down in some honky tonk sippin' on a beer
Yes, I wish I was somewhere other than here
'Cause that great fillin' station holdup
Cost me two good years

We got fifteen dollars and a can of STP
A big ole jar of cashew nuts and a Japanese TV
Feelin' we had pulled the biggest heist of our career
We're wanted men, we'll strike again
But first let's have a beer

And now I wish I was somewhere other than here
Down in some honky tonk sippin' on a beer
Yes, I wish I was somewhere other than here
'Cause that great fillin' station holdup
Cost me two good years

We were sittin' in the Krystal about as drunk as we could be
In walked the deputy sheriff and he's holding our TV
He roughed us, then he cuffed us and he took us off to jail
No picture on a poster, no reward and no bail

And now I wish I was somewhere other than here
Down in some honky tonk sippin' on a beer
Yes, I wish I was somewhere other than here
'Cause that great fillin' station holdup
Cost me two good years
Yes, that great fillin' station holdup
It cost me two good years
