Truckstop Salvation (Jimmy Buffett)
Words and Music by Jimmy Buffett
>From the Album "Before the Beach"
G G/C (repeat)
Verse 1:
[Am]Straight-laced lea[C]ther-faced
[B/G]He rolled in like he owne[D]d the two bit town[G] [G/C]
[Am]Dollar bills bulging from his bell bo[D]ttomed jeans
The po[B/G]pulation they[D] gathered 'round[G] [G/C]
[Em]Nothing this exciting since a fertilize[G]r truck blew a
[Am]Front tire and landed in the creek[D] [D/G6] [D] [D/G6]
[Am]Everybody talkin' every[C]body strainin'
[B/G]Tryin' to get a little pe[D]ek[G] [G/C]
It's just the wor[Am]d they'll never know[C]
Not a cou[B/G]ntry fair sideshow[D]
A r[Am]eality they'll s[C]omehow never see[D]
He's wh[Am]at they tried to kill[C]
With their Bibl[B/G]es and their stills[D]
[Am] [C] [D] [D/G6] 
[D]But he'[D/G6]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
