      We don't eat in no white restaurant
      We're eating in the car
      Baloney again, baloney again
      We don't sleep in no white hotel bed
      We're sleepin' in the car, baloney again
      You don't strut around in these country towns
      You best stay in the car
      Look on ahead don't stare around
      You best stay where you are
      You're a long way from home, boy
      Don't push your luck too far
      Baloney again

      Twenty-two years we've sung the word
      Since nineteen thirty-one
      Amen, I say amen
      Now the young folk want to praise the Lord
      With guitar, bass and drums, amen
      Well I'll never get tired of Jesus
      But it's been a heavy load
      Carrying His precious love
      Down a long dirt road
      We're a long way from home
      Just let's pay the man and go
      Baloney again

      The lord is my shepherd
      He leadeth me in pastures green
      He gave us this day
      Our daily bread and gasoline
      Go under the willow
      Park her up beside the stream
      Shoulders for pillows
      Lay down your head and dream
      Shoulders for pillows
      Lay down your head and dream
