I Can?t Stick Around to Take the Fall, You All
By W. Montgomery


Verse:
It started out near Atlanta, G.A.
Seems there were some fines I didn?t pay
90 days home detention to get through
But I had more important things to do

I tried my thumb on the West Expressway
Got a ride from some kids in a ragtop Chevrolet
We were smoking weed and getting kind of fried
They forgot to tell me that it was a stolen ride

Chorus:
I can?t stick around to take the fall, you all
You know I?ve had some problems with the law
Why can?t they just go and let me be
Even a fool?s got a right to be free

Verse:
The driver?s girl, Betty Sue, wasn?t shy at all
I go crazy when I hear that Georgia drawl
The driver said, Boy, I?ll see your ass in hell
If you don?t stop trying to ring my southern belle

Verse:
A trooper ran us down near the Alabama line
I got the drop on him, left him moaning in the pines
I surely didn?t mean to hurt him none
It?s so sad to see a cop without his gun

Chorus:
I can?t stick around to take the fall, you all
You know I?ve had some problems with the law
Why can?t they just go and let me be
Even a fool?s got a right to be free

Verse:
I took the wheel and turned it to the south
The driver didn?t like that Glock auto in his mouth
The couple in the back jumped out and lightened the load
I guess they lost their love for the road

We stopped for gas about two hours from the gulf
The chump at the pump was acting mighty tough
I showed him the gun and the smirk fell from his face
And I helped him back to the office to open the safe

Chorus:
I can?t stick around to take the fall, you all
You know I?ve had some problems with the law
Why can?t they just go and let me be
Even a fool?s got a right, (right to be free) to be free

Verse:
We hit the roadblock across from a railroad yard
Ten police cruisers and they called out the National Guard
A crowd had gathered, they were all messed up with beer
They hadn?t seen this much excitement in years

I said Betty Sue take off your clothes and walk towards the cops
I tossed the cash in the air and the drunks dove in as it dropped
During the commotion I took off into the woods
A few months in jail will do that little hussy good

Chorus:
I can?t stick around to take the fall, you all
You know I?ve had some problems with the law
Why can?t they just go and let me be
Even a fool?s got a right to be free
