Low on gas

 

Get up in the morning, alarm didn’t ring,

Out to work didn’t eat a thing,

A 9 hour day I’ve got to do,

No food to eat how will I get through,

This whole day ain’t going fast,

I’m feeling weak,

 

Low on gas, low on gas, low on gas, low on gas.

 

I get in the car, ignition on,

Drive up the street thinking nothings wrong,

Red light beeps, needles down,

Fuel gauge empty, too far from town,

Driving slow, watching people pass,

Can’t rev to hard,

 

Low on gas, low on gas, low on gas, low on gas.

 

I get home note on the window sill,

Red letter says I aint payed my bill,

I ring them up but they just scoff,

Its gone to far, they’ll turn the service off,

Feeling cold like a monkey made of brass,

Can’t light the fire-

 

Low on gas, low on gas, low on gas, low on gas.

 

Go for a drink at the local bar,

Feeling good with a couple of jars,

Pretty girl we get on fine, till I ask, her place or mine,

She said she’s she’s tired I’ll have to pass,

I’m sorry boy I’m

 

Low on gas, low on gas, low on gas, low on gas.

 

DJ plays my favorite song,

Lightnin’ Hopkins got to bop along,

On the floor with legs like lead,

I really should be home in bed,

Don’t quite know how long I’ll last

3 minutes long, I’m

 

Low on gas, low on gas, low on gas, low on gas.

a true story,

Lyrics

Well i'm ready to rumble, I was watching you, as you where watching me as soon as i walked in the room,

i knew you had a score to settle, your eyes told me real soon,

If tonights the night, then that's alright, coz i ain't backing down,

a lesson or two, your gonna learn cause i don't want you around.

If tonights the nights, then thats alright, if tonights the night, i'm ready to fight,

if tonights the night, i'm looking for trouble, if tonight the night, we'll put things right, i'm ready to rumble.

I knew she used to be your girl, and i stole her away,

but the way that you mistreated her, i knew she just couldn't stay,

instead of hitting that poor girl, take it out on me, a punch you'll throw, and then you'll know,how hard a punch can feel,

(chorus)

Now i'm a guy, who don't like to fight, i'd rather just walk away,

but when i'm pushed, and it feels right, i know i'd rather stay,

so grab your gloves, and step outside, there's a dance that we can do,

weapons free a good fist fight, i'm gonna give you what your due.

(chorus)

Story

When i wrote this song i had the film 'O'Brother wher art tho' in my head and thinking that Rock'n'roll was called the Devils music in the 50's, the words just flowed out and the song was wrote really in a matter of minutes.

Lyrics

Done a deal with the Devil, Gone and sold my soul, Done a deal with the Devil and to his hell i'll go, i got what i want but he got much more i know. The Devil he asked me 'did i want anything? do i told that Devil 'That i wish that i could sing' i got my voice but my soul to him i bring. I sold my soul to the Devil, a singing voice he gave to me, but my soul for the Devil, he'll keep eternally. When i sing my heart out, it feels so heavenly, when i'm singing with the Devil he sings along with me, from the heart i sing but my soul will not be free. (Chorus) I play the Devils music, this Rockin's here to stay, the Devil gave me what i want, i'll pay him back some day, but for now i'm happy to live my life this way.
