Beer Run
by Todd Snider

Be -double E double are you-N-beer run
Be -double E double are you-N-beer run
All we need is a ten and five-er,
Car and key and a sober driver,
Be -double E double are you-N-beer run
A couple of frat guys from abilene
Drove out all night to see Robert Earl Keen
At the K-pei swine and sworay dance-
They wore baseball caps and khaki pants-
They wanted cigarettes-so to save a little money-
They got one from this hippie who smelt kina funny
And-next thing they knew they were both pretty hungry-
And pretty thirsty tooo

be -double E double are you-N-beer run
Be -double E double are you-N-beer are you-unn
All we need is a ten and five-er,
Car and key and a sober driver,
Be -double E double are you-N-beer run

found a store with a sign-said
There 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 them registers are
Laid his fake id on the countertop
The clerk looked, he turned up, he looked he stopped.
He said "son, I'm not gonna call the cops, but I'm gonna
Have to keep this card"-
The guys both took it pretty haard

be -double E double are you-N-beer run
Be -double E double are you-N-beer are you-un
Oh how happy we would be-
Had we only brought a better fake id
Be -double E double are you-N-beer run

they found this nother old hippie named
Sleepie john-claimed to be the one from the Robert
Earl Keen song
So they gave him all their cash-he bought em some brew
-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
So they could sing with all their friends
They sang-"the rode goes on forever and the party
Never eends"

be -double E double are you-N-beer run
All we need is a ten and a five-er car and
Key and a sober driver
Be -double E double are you-N-beer run
