Intro: (G) (D) (A) (D)

(D) I pulled into the regular pump

I was (G) feelin' quite at (D) ease

I rolled down my window and told the man, (E) "Fifty cents worth (A) please"

Then (G) out jumped my partner with his (D) trusty pellet gun

He said, "Boy, this is a holdup, keep 'a (A) pumpin' and don't (D) run"

And now I (G) wish I was (A) somewhere other than (D) here

(G) Down in some (A) honky tonk, (E) sippin' on a (A) beer

Yes I (G) wish I was (A) somewhere other than (D) here

Cause that (G) great fillin' station (D) holdup

(A) Cost me two good (D) years

(D) We got fifteen dollars and a (G) can of ST(D)P

A big ole jar of cashew nuts and a (E) Japanese T(A)V

(G) Feelin' we had pulled the biggest (D) heist of our career

We're wanted men, we'll strike again

But (A) first let's have a (D) beer

And now I (G) wish I was (A) somewhere other than (D) here

(G) Down in some (A) honky tonk, (E) sippin' on a (A) beer

Yes I (G) wish I was (A) somewhere other than (D) here

Cause that (G) great fillin' station (D) holdup

(A) Cost me two good (D) years

We were (D) sittin' in the Krystal

About as (G) drunk as we could (D) be

In walked the deputy sheriff

And he's (E) holdin' our T(A)V

He (G) roughed us and he cuffed us

And he (D) took us off to jail

No picture on a poster

No (A) reward and no bail

And now I (G) wish I was (A) somewhere other than (D) here

(G) Down in some (A) honky tonk, (E) sippin' on a (A) beer

Yes I (G) wish I was (A) somewhere other than (D) here

Cause that (G) great fillin' station (D) holdup

(A) Cost me two good (D) years
