Play Midnight Auto Supply
By Neil Dover

Well I stole cars as a way of life in the backwood Georgia hills
I ran merchandise with a switchblade and they all knew I would kill
I sold my soul to the Devil when I turned twenty-one
Never thought twice about wrong or right I wasn’t stealing just for fun
I paid two grand to the sheriff to keep his nose up in that car
I warned him once with a loaded gun don’t come around after dark
I took five a night and by the morning light I was a laying low
Well you don’t go out in the social life when you’re in this business

I went out for a shiny new black Mustang with bright white racing stripes
It was worth three thousand dollars if he got it by first light
I wrote Happy Birthday Mindy in grease paint on the side
I parked it in the drive and caught a ride home for the night
But the years went by and the sheriff died and the winds began to change
It got hard to fill the orders without the cops all on the take
Things’d get hot and often as not I’d dump a new car in the lake
I gave up the shop and now all I got is me and my brother Jake down here at

Let’s get this car boys

One dark night at a stoplight a red-hot Chevrolet
A deputy pulled alongside and to this very day
I still recall the look when I put the gun there in his face
And if I hadda pulled the trigger you know I woulda got away back to
