I pulled into the regular pump
I was feelin quite at ease
I rolled down my window and told the man, fifty cents worth please
Then out jumped my partner with his trusty pellet gun
He said, boy this is a holdup, keep a pumpin and don't run

Chorus:
And now I wish I was somewhere other than here
Down in some honky tonk, sippin on a beer
Yes I wish I was somewhere other than here
Because that great fillin station holdup
Cost me two good years

We got fifteen dollars and a can of stp
A big ol jar of cashew nuts and a japanese tv
Feelin we had pulled the biggest heist of our career
Were wanted men, well strike again
But first lets have a beer

Chorus:
And now I wish I was somewhere other than here
Down in some honky tonk, sippin on a beer
Yes I wish I was somewhere other than here
Because that great fillin station holdup
Cost me two good years

(guitar instrumental)

We were sittin in the krystal
About as drunk as we could be
In walks the deputy sheriff
And he's holdin our tv
Roughed us then he cuffed us
And he took us off to jail
No pictures on a poster, no reward and no bail

Chorus:
And now I wish I was somewhere other than here
Down in some honky tonk, sippin on a beer
Yes I wish I was somewhere other than here
Cause that great fillin station holdup
Cost me two good years

Coda:
Yes that great fillin station holdup
It cost me two good years
