There's a campfire burning on the Missippi River bank
My old pickup speakers are cranking out alot of Hank
That's the sheriff's daughter dancin' on my hood
with an empty bottle this can't be good.
There's an unwritten law in this sleepy little town
there ain't no drinkin on the river when the sun goes down
think I see the blue lights comin' through the woods
its the sheriff and his posse, this can't be good
Everybody is runnin' like the end of the world is comin'
with a Buffard T kinda law man closin' in
