"The Great Car Dealer War" as written by and Patterson Hood....
Been drinkin' all night long, got a job to do
Got paid 500 bucks just to light the other few
To pour the gasoline, to strike the match
Leave without being seen, Chris Blade Pontiac
I don't ask questions, I don't assume
You'll do the same if you know what's good for you
You pay attention, don't hang around
It's so exciting when it all comes down

Didn't kill nobody, didn't mean no harm
Just making money and having fun
Didn't kill nobody, but I know the score
I just start the fires in the great car dealer war

Big Jim Stephens was the Chevy giant
Brand new showroom, million dollar inventory
A tall, beautiful mansion at the lake
From the used car lot 3 years before
Things lead to another, and more and more
Hired by the same man, I burned out the night before

Didn't kill nobody, didn't mean no harm
In 6 months time, I burned every damn one
Didn't kill nobody, like I said before
I just start the fires in the great car dealer war
I just start the fires in the great car dealer war

Big Jim Stephens, he ain't no more
Gunned down in cold blood
On his brand new showroom floor
Blood on the Corvettes, for all to see
On the Monte Carlo and the brand new IROC-Z
No need to investigate, they haven't still
Someone took the fall, so I'm sure they never will
I don't ask questions, I don't assume
I just take a long hard look when I walk into a room

Didn't kill nobody, didn't mean no harm
Just making money and having fun
Didn't kill nobody, like I said before
Just another soldier in the great car dealer war

Didn't kill nobody, didn't mean no harm
It ain't never personal, just a job to be done
Didn't kill nobody, but I know the score
Done my tour of duty in the great car dealer war
Done my tour of duty in the great car dealer war
