The last chance texaco Lyrics

Artist: Rickie Lee Jones
Album: Rickie Lee Jones

A long stretch of headlights
Bends into I-9
Tiptoe into truck stops
And sleepy diesel eyes
Volcanoes rumble in the taxi
And glow in the dark
Camels in the driver's seat
A slow, easy mark

But you ran out of gas
Down the road a piece
Then the battery went dead
And now the cable won't reach...

It's your last chance
To check under the hood
Last chance
She ain't soundin' too good,
Your last chance
To trust the man with the star
You've found the last chance Texaco

Well, he tried to be Standard
He tries to be Mobil
He tried living in a world
And in a shell
There was this block-busted blonde
He loved her - free parts and labor
But she broke down and died
And threw all the rods he gave her

But this one ain't fuel-injected
Her plug's disconnected
She gets scared and she stalls
She just needs a man, that's all

It's her last chance
Her timing's all wrong
Her last chance
She can't idle this long
Her last chance
Turn her over and go
Pullin' out of the last chance texaco
The last chance

I've been a song writer most of my life and been awe struck by many songs - but even in my old age - this may very well be the most powerful and exceptional blend of music, lyric, voice and expression I have ever heard.

I'm blessed to have lived in the time and space it was created and will carry it with me always. Thank you.

At one time radio and TV adds set the stage for this song. It was a time then adventure was just down the road a piece. Now a great song like this may only be understood by the road warriors that fight traffic to deliver our good while considering the relationships they had to leave behind.

This song corresponded to a broken affair I had as a young man. Always say her and I in these lyrics.

Is there still a woman that will admit that she "needs a man, that's all". Wish there was.

I can only take so much of this song. Too sad. Too real.

Love.
