Held Up Without A Gun lyrics

I was out driving, just taking it slow
Looked at my tank it was reading low
Pulled in an exxon station out on highway one
Look out!
Help up without a gun
Help up without a gun
Help up without a gun

(some man) drew eight hundred dollars (doing off a
Squeeze)
Aint got nowhere to go and nothing to eat
(driving up so blow us) better sign here son
Watch out!
Help up without a gun
Help up without a gun

Now its a sin and it oughta be a crime
You know it happens buddy all the time
If I dont break the limit tryin to have a little fun
Help up without a gun
Help up without a gun
Help up without a gun
Help up without a gun
