(Song begins)

These times now, ain't through to me
Pony carts spend a dollar three

Oh, the sales tax is on it
The sales tax is on it
Oh, the sales tax is on it
Ev'rywhere you go

Olan Marshall live behind the jails
A sign on the wall sayin, 'Liquor for Sale'

You know the sales tax is on it
Oh, the sales tax is on it
Oh, the sales tax is on it
Ev'rywhere you go

I've never seen the likes
Since I've been born
The women's got sales tax
On their stuff at home

Oh, the sales tax is on it
Oh, sales tax is on it
Oh, the sales tax is on it
Ev'rywhere you go

'You know these sales tax is a pain'

(instrumental)

You used-a could buy for a dollar a round
Now sales tax is on it all over town

Oh, the sales tax is on it
Oh, sales tax is on it
Oh, the sales tax is on it
Ev'rywhere you go

I'm as lovin' now, as a woman can be
The stuff I've got'll cost ya a dollar and three

Oh, the sales tax is on it
Oh, sales tax is on it
Oh, the sales tax is on it
Ev'rywhere you go

Now, you may take me to be a fool
Ev'rything is sold by the government's rule

Oh, you know the sales tax is on it
Oh, sales tax is on it
Oh, the sales tax is on it
Ev'rywhere you go.
