Fast as Light

Fast as Light

My best friend is a trooper
For the state of Tennessee
It’s his job to hunt me down
But he ain’t gonna catch me

We did our time in country
We should’ve burned our draft cards
Da Nang was a living hell
Running moonshine ain’t that hard

Chorus:
My buddy says he’ll get me
But that just ain’t right
Cause I’ve got a Dodge Charger
And it’s as fast as light

When we came back to the world
We both felt like damaged goods
He got himself a shiny badge
I built a still in the woods

College kids like my moonshine
They mix it up with cool aid
I sell a lot at UT
Some at East Tennessee State

Chorus:
My buddy says he’ll get me
But that just ain’t right
Cause I’ve got a Dodge Charger
And it’s as fast as light

I’ve got three good kids at home
And I’ve got me a lovely wife
They all worry about me
And that ain’t no kind of life

They never asked for nothing
And nothing is what they got
Before I leave for Knoxville
I think I’ll shoot all the clocks

Chorus:
My buddy says he’ll get me
But that just ain’t right
Cause I’ve got a Dodge Charger
And it’s as fast as light
