The O.H.I.O. S.H.P.
Had a quota to fill, that quota was me
One helluva night down at the H.O.B.
51 pieces on the side of the road

Francis Ford and Mary Jane
Mick and Keith down at the bowling lane
All was cool 'til the sun up came
51 pieces on the side of the road

Chorus:
Well, it never occurred to me
How ten out of ten would go free
For 51 pieces in the side of the road

(Instrumental)

The thunder rolls and the lightnin' is flashin'
Sirens scream and the cars are crashin'
I am the object of their passion
51 pieces on the side of the road

It goes to show that you never know
Swing up high, you come down low
Watch your back in Ohio
51 pieces on the side of the road

Repeat Chorus

(Instrumental)
