“Water in the Fuel”
Artist: Fred Eaglesmith
Albums: Lipstick, Lies & Gasoline (1997)

Well Darlin I'm a comin down
route number 67
I just got off the turnpike
avoiding the Ohio state inspection
Johnny Law followed me up the road,
but then he turned off and he let me go
I guess this old truck ain't worth shuttin down

Your voice last night on the telephone
said you wouldn't be there when I got home
so when I get to Cleveland, gonna head back south

the light keeps comin on
I got water in the fuel
My brakes are gone
I got a left front tire throwin threads
by tommorrow mornin I could be dead
baby maybe you were
right all along

Said you couldn't stay
with a man who was always gone away
and all you wanted to do was to settle down
you wanted to buy that little trailer
out on the edge with the money you'd saved
it had a carport, a colour tv, and no place to turn around

the light keeps comin on
I got water in the fuel
My brakes are gone
I got a left front tire throwin threads
by tommorrow mornin I could be dead
baby maybe you were
right all along

Remember that winter when the lake froze over
we drove out there after we'd unloaded
we revved that truck and we spun it round and round
and we left it idlin out on that ice
crawled in the sleeper and I held you tight
baby I'm sure on thin ice now

the light keeps comin on
I got water in the fuel
My brakes are gone
I got a left front tire throwin threads
by tommorrow mornin I could be dead
baby maybe you were
right all along

baby maybe you were
right all along
