  • I don't need no wheels
    I don't need no gasoline
    Cause the wind that is blowing
    Is blowing like a smoke machine

    If I said to you
    That I was looking for a place to get to
    Cause my neck is broken
    And my pants ain't getting no bigger

    I got a stolen wife
    And a rhinestone life
    And some good old boys
    I'm writing my will
    On a three dollar bill
    In the evening time

    All my friends
    Tell me something is getting together
    I got a beard that would disappear
    If I'm dressed in leather
    Now let me tell you about my baby
    She was born in Arizona
    Sitting in the jail house
    Trying to learn some good manners

    I got a stolen wife
    And a rhinestone life
    And some good old boys
    I'm writing my will
    On a three dollar bill
    In the evening time

    Match sticks strike
    When I'm riding my bike to the depot
    Cause everybody knows my name
    At the recreation center

    If I could only find a nickel I would pay myself off tonight
    Cause nobody knows
    When he good times have passed out cold
    I got a stolen wife
    And a rhinestone life
    And some good old boys
    I'm writing my will
    On a three dollar bill
    In the evening time

    I got a stolen wife
    And a rhinestone life
    And some good old boys
    I'm writing my will
    On a three dollar bill
    In the evening time

    Don't talk to me
    If you're looking for somebody to cry on
    Don't talk to me
    If you're looking for somebody to cry on
    Ah! Writer/s: HAROLD S. PARIS, ADAM TAYLOR, BECK DAVID HANSEN, JOHN KING, MICHAEL SIMPSON
