She put us down the highway
Barely making it
Holding up the line
At ten miles an hour
Smoke coming out of that rusty old wagon
Looks like she been running for twenty long years

She finally makes it to the gasoline station
Gets out of that wagon, hair long and wild
Boots on her feet, army-green jeans
Something about her that made me uneasy

She asked a man how long to the next town
She asked a man, said
6 miles to McKenney

I'm standing in a line
Got cola in my hand
Looking at the chicken on the heathen lamp
See she walks up to the counter in a ragged old sweater
Smells like a dog that's been lying in the sun

She asks for Camels and a gallon of gas
(...)
6 miles to McKenney

Camels on the counter by the bathroom sink
Something smells funny when I walk in the door
All locks on the stalls and I went for the wrong one
Needless to say, I was a little surprised

I let out a scream, but she just laughed at me
She just laughed at me
6 miles to McKenney

Got back on the highway, I drove out fast
Riding by the crows on the telephone wires
The crazy look in her eye
(...)
I couldn't get that woman out of my mind
I can see us riding in that wagon together
Waving at the man at the gasoline station
Blowing by every sign

6 miles to McKenney
