Lyrics: Scott Miller and the Commonwealth – 8 Miles a Gallon

You can hear Scott Miller on Radio Free Texas at www.radiofreetexas.org

8 Miles a Gallon

With a Ford 460 that’s an engine pretty mean
shittin’ out bolts and pissin’ gasoline
7 and 1/4 tons of pure mule power
Rollin’ down the road at 8 miles per gallon

Hit the hammer lane and mash the engine to the floor
the CB is cracklin’ with a truck stop whore
hard to hear her 20 when the engine valves rattle
Rollin’ down the road at 8 miles per gallon

To you boys all deployed if its me your fightin’ for
I need: Democracy, Gasoline and world wide rock n’roll
I’m praying everyday that you can make it through the battle…
So I don’t feel so guilty ‘bout 8 miles per gallon

So I invent a big engine
make it run on bullshit
put in on a chasse
Buddy, it’ll never quit
invent a big engine
make it run on bullshit
put it on a train track
Buddy, it’ll never quit
invent a big engine
make it run on bullshit
put it on the highway
Buddy, it’ll never quit

From Washington to Arlington to the House of Saud
They’ll all be buying shovels so they can have a job
And I’ll be living happy in the Shenandoah Valley
Rollin’ down the road on 8 miles per gallon
