Me and my buddy got us a wild hair
So we loaded up in my ragtop Chevrolet
And with Hank Junior blaring on the radio

We were barrelling' down old 17
He said, "You were doin' 60 in a 45
But if I catch you again, I'm gonna slap you in the county jail"
We said, "Thank you sir, you sure been nice
And we were Southbound and down with the wind blowing in our faces
The radio was cooking out a haggard tune

We ought to stop and get ourselves a drink"
We kept on rolling and I seen this spot
Of this place called, 'The Cloud Nine Bar and Grill'
We walked through the door and the place was jammed
And some orange haired feller singing about suicide
He said, "Well, let's just have one round anyway"

This feller walked up and said, "I'll buy this round"
He looked like a girl but he talked like a guy
And everybody in that place looked just about like him
I said, "Jim, this ain't our kind of bar
'Cause there's gonna be trouble, ain't no sense in taking a chance"
When somebody grabbed old Jim by the sleeve

There's fellers dancing and fellers kissing
He said, "Partner, I just can't turn this down
I'll dance with the lady and we'll get on down the road"
So he walked away and left me alone
And he was making me mad with some of the things he said
I said, "If you don't get your paw off me

I said, "Well, partner try this on for size"
Everybody in that place must have been his friend
But where I come from, we don't give up without a fight
They were screaming and yelling and scratching and clawing
I was holding my own, 'cause I've been in a scrap or two
And that gal he was with, come running up too

And that beautiful girl was just a beautiful man
He dropped that dude like a shot from a gun
And me and old Jim started fighting our way to the door
Man, we lit out of there in that Chevrolet
We was going' down the highway doing about a hundred and ten
Then a red light came on the rear view mirror

I had to call my Daddy to go our bail
I've done give up drinking', I've give up bars
I'm going back where the women are women and the men are men
