Held Up Without a Gun

I was out driving just a taking it slow
Looked at my tank it was reading low
Pulled in a Exxon station out on Highway One
Held up without a gun, held up without a gun

Some damn fool with a guitar walkin' down the street
Ain't got nowhere to go, ain't got nothing to eat
Man with a cigar says, "Sign here son"
Held up without a gun, held up without a gun

Now it's a sin and it oughta be a crime
You know it happens buddy all the time
Try to make a living, try to have a little fun
Held up without a gun, held up without a gun
