Beer Run Repost

30 Mar

I wrote this originally in August of 2009…   So funny for today I had to repost!

 

Iforgot about this song until last summer, when I got to meet Todd in person (OK YES he is That handsome!) in Telluride.  Then I saw him again this summer here in Alb, and I still love this song……  Here are the lyrics and I’m going to try and figure out a way to get the song and maybe?? a video

I’m not sure how though, but here are the lyrics of Todd Snider‘s ever popular

Beer Run

all we need is a ten and five-er,
a car and key and a sober driver.

A couple of frat guys from Abilene
drove out all night to see Robert Earl Keen
at the KPIG Swine and Sworea Dance.
They wore baseball caps and khaki pants.
They wanted cigarettes, so to save a little money they bought one off this hippie that smelled kinda funny.
And next thing they knew they were both pretty hungry and pretty thirsty too

car and key and an able driver.

They found a store with a sign that said
their beer was coldest.
So they sent in Brad ’cause he looked the oldest.
He got a case of beer and a candy bar, walked over to where all the registers are
laid his fake I.D. on the counter top.
The clerk looked, and turned to look back up and stopped.
He said “Son, I ain’t gonna call the cops, but I’m gonna have to keep this card”
the guys both took it pretty hard.

oh how happy we would be-
had we only brought a better fake I.D.

They met another old hippie named
Sleepy John, claimed to be the one from the Robert Earl song.
So they gave him all their cash-he bought em some brews.
Was a beautiful day out in Santa Cruz
They were feelin’ so good it shoulda been a crime.
The crowd was cool, and the band was prime.
They made it back up front to their seats just in time to they could sing with all their friends “the road goes on forever
and the party never ends”.
