Billy and I got married, following our firstborn
Daddy left this gas and convenience store, just before he died
And I was only nineteen when I had my third baby
Sometimes I think maybe I should have left here long ago

Travelers are stoppin' by
Check their oil and their PSI
Gas up and away they fly
Movin' down the line
But this beat up truck and worn shoes
Always givin' me the blues
Billy suckin' down the booze
Nearly every night

I never seen the city lights
How they must shine so bright
Not alike this country night, the sky is black as coal
And this gas station mountain home, not a thing to call my own
How I wish I was alone
With a penny to my name

Strangers see this mountain here
It's beautiful beyond compare
But it's just a dumb old mountain there
I see it everyday
If I could see the sunset skies
Over fields of grain or ocean tides
City skyline in the night, I'll be dancin' til the dawn

I never seen the city lights
How they must shine so bright
Not alike this country night, the sky is black as coal
And this gas station mountain home, not a thing to call my own
How I wish I was alone
With a penny to my name

Billy and I got married, following our firstborn
Daddy left this gas and convenience store, just before he died
Maybe Billy and I someday
Will find a chance to get away
Until then it's here I'll stay
Wishin' on a star

I never seen the city lights
How they must shine so bright
Not alike this country night, the sky is black as coal
And this gas station mountain home, not a thing to call my own
How I wish I was alone
With a penny to my name
