Lyrics

Started this Monday on a brand new job
Working? five days all around the clock
Friday afternoon I split a six pack with Bob
It might have been two but I still took the truck

I hit McDonalds for a burger or two
The clutch got stuck and the truck went right through
I heard somebody yell ?Dial 911!?
Soon I?ll be a wanted man on the run

I have to say I didn?t plan it this way
My body kept movin? but my brain was stuck
There?s Hell to pay, they?re gonna haul me away
My head is on the chopping block
I got a case of bad luck

In hind sight my vision wasn?t 20-20
When I punched that dude and left in his car
But the news crew was dining next door at Denny?s
Not exactly the way I planned to be a star

2 minutes later when I ran a red light
No heat in sight, I was feeling alright
Maybe I could still have a quiet night
But I ran out of gas and the engine just died

I have to say I didn?t plan it this way
My body kept movin? but my brain was stuck
There?s Hell to pay, they?re gonna haul me away
My head is on the chopping block
I got a case of bad luck

When I left the car I hoped, I was dreaming
The gun in my hand -357 in chrome
When I ran into my trailer a chick started screaming
They all look alike but this was not my home

Much to my surprise she was looking for some fun
I took of my pants and I showed her my gun
She said ?Oooh Baby - I don?t know where to begin?
Now she won?t let me leave or she?s gonna turn me in

I have to say I didn?t plan it this way
My body kept movin? but my brain was stuck
There?s Hell to pay, they?re gonna haul me away
My head is on the chopping block
I got a case of bad luck

I started with a six pack but my day ran amok
And I got a case of bad luck
