[Rehab]
Bartender I really did it this time
Broke my parole to have a good time.
When I got home it was 6 AM.
The door was locked so I kicked it in.

She was trippin' on the bills
I think she was high on some pills.
She threw my things out into the yard.
Then she called me a bum and slapped me real hard.

And in my drunken stuper
I did what I should have never done.
Now I'm sittin' here, talking to you,
Drunk and on the run.

I'm sittin' at a bar on the inside
Waitin' for my ride on the outside.
She stole my heart in the trailer park
So I jacked the keys to her father's car
And crashed that Chverolet and then stepped away.

[Hank Williams, Jr.]
Ya know Moe I'll probably get ten years
So just give me beers till they get here.
Yea I know the sun is coming up
And y'all are probably get ready for closing up.
But I'm trying to drown my soul.
I'm tired of this life on a dirt road.
And everything that I love is gone
And I'm tired of hangin' on.

She got me sittin' at a bar on the inside
Waitin' for my ride on the outside.
She stole my heart in the trailer park
So I jacked the keys to her father's car
And crashed that Cheverolet and stepped away.

[Rehab]
Guess it was meant to be
Romance is misery
So much for memories
And now I am headed to the penitentiary
See me on TV
The next cop series
I am a danger
I guess I shoulda did somethin' about my anger
But I never learned
Real things I don't concern
I pour kerosene on everything I love
And watch it burn
I know it's my fault
But I wasn't happy it was over
She threw a fit
So I crashed her daddy's Nova.

And now I'm going back again,
Back to the pen to see my friends.
And when we all pile out that county van
They're gonna ask me where I've been.

[All]
I've been at a bar on the inside
Waitin' for my ride on the outside.
She stole my heart in the trailer park
So I jacked the keys to her father's car
And crashed that Cheverolet and stepped away.

Na Na Na Na-na-na
Na Na Na Na-na-na
Na Na-na-na Na-na Na-na-na
Na Na-na-na Na-na Na-na-na

I'm got me sittin' at a bar on the inside
And I'm waitin' on my ride on the outside.
You know I crashed her daddy's car
And then I steped away!

Yeah-yeah, I stepped away.
You know I rolled that Cheverolet but I walked away.
Yeah, I stepped away... (ha ha! )
