Truckstop Salvation

Jimmy Buffett

 Straight-laced leather-faced
 He rolled in like he owned the two bit town  
 Dollar bills bulging from his bell bottomed jeans
The population they gathered 'round  
 Nothing this exciting since a fertilizer truck blew a
 Front tire and landed in the creek    
 Everybody talkin' everybody strainin'
 Tryin'  to get a little peek  
( Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/b/buffett-jimmy/2650.html )
It's just the word they'll never know 
Not a country fair sideshow 
A reality they'll somehow never see 
He's what they tried to kill 
With their Bibles and their stills 
 But he's not weird just a man that's bein' free
Repeat Intro.
Verse 2:
Payin' for the gas he wickedly shouted thanks
And continued on his journey once again
Just about that time a siren fast approachin'' and
The pot bellied sheriff he whizzed right in
With his self inflicted grammar started shoutin'
Accusations at the long haired greasy looking ape
While a local D.J. from the fifty watt station got
The whole damn thing on tape
Repeat Chorus
Repeat Intro.
Verse 3:
The holy roller preacher told the eager congregation
That the devil has passed right through their nest
But the teenage girls with their locks in curls were
Talkin' 'bout that hair upon his chest
Now the kids got their cookie while the preacher saved some souls
And the story spread to everyone in sight
Commotion was the word and everybody heard
He was gone before the night
Repeat Chorus
