Lyrics

Skillet Head Johnson robbed a convenient store
He grabbed 40 dollars a fifth of mad dog and headed out the back door
He thumbed a ride to save his hide from the law

Somewhere near the Canadian border there's a quite little town
One side was maple leafs and the other was sheriff brown
Skillet was the hero, everyone loved to death
He'd slide across the border and leave the sheriff yelling god damn

The sheriff's brother ran the convenient store
He was always in the back room doing whip-its on the floor
He'd lost all of his teeth, punching himself in the face
He'd gotten kick out of school, in 3rd grade

Skillet Head Johnson robbed a convenient store
He grabbed 40 dollars a fifth of mad dog and headed out the back door
He thumbed a ride to save his hide from the law

The sheriff was a republican who hated negros
He had a portrait of rush Limbaugh on his bedroom window
The sheriff's sister was always looking skillet's way
She'd never kiss and tell, but everyone knew she was a great lay

Long legged Loretta was the sheriff's wife
She had a thing for skillet on those lonely nights
Skillet would take her out in the woods, to his 69 VW bus
He always knew if he was stuck, that woman would get him off

Skillet Head Johnson robbed a convenient store
He grabbed 40 dollars a fifth of mad dog and headed out the back door
He thumbed a ride to save his hide from the law

He thumbed a ride to save his hide from the law
