Words and music by David John Brown

 

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.
