Nitty Gritty Dirt Band – Rent, Groceries, & Gasoline lyrics

I used to live the luxury life
A new house, three cars to drive
Steppin' over the credit line
I was payin' a heavy price
It seemed more was never enough
So I called my creditor up
Said "all I need is that cadillac car,
I'm heading for a brand new start"


I was in way to deep
Straightened out my priorities
I'm a man of simple needs
Just rent, groceries, and gasoline


I got a trailer sturdy and cheap
Hot time, job work when I please
Goin' to mexico next week
Gotta feel that ocean breeze
I might settle down sometime
Right now, it ain't on my mind
Got a pretty girl along for the ride
She's the adventurous kind


I got everything I need
Straightend out my priorities
I'm a man of simple means
Just rent, groceries, and gasoline

Got a full tank and some food to go
Check the map and we'll hit the road
In the flicker of the dashboard lights
I feel my life unwind

I got everything I need
Straightend out my priorities
I'm a man of simple means
Just rent, groceries, and gasoline
Rent, groceries, and gasoline
I need rent, groceries, and gasoline

Just give me rent, groceries, and gasoline
And I'm outta here!
