A song for all the truck stop cuties...


This old semi sure could use a tune up


Front ends pulling like a bitch


But I’m not living what you might call


The lifestyle of the rich


 


Faded jeans and old scuffed boots


Like an old cowpoke I’m saddle sore


I pull into an old familiar truck stop


And as I’m heading for its door


 


I see a flashing neon sign outside


Think a cup of Joe sure would be fine


I also see that the sign reads


All you can eat just


…three sixty-nine


 


 


In faded jeans and old scuffed boots


Like an old cowpoke I’m saddle sore


A 24 hour angel takes my order


As soon as I walk in through the door


 


Just her and me and that old jukebox


her waitress apron over a mini skirt


She looked so good I think I drooled


Down the front of my old denim shirt


 


She passes me a menu


Like it’s a book at story time


Said “Remember cutie its all you can eat


…for three sixty-nine


 


Ordered two eggs up, some bacon


I peeked at her and gave a longing sigh


She just smiled and sat down beside me


And laid a hand upon my thigh


 


She locked the door turned off the sign


Took my hand and led me out back


We made out to some old country song


About dogs, and beer and old train track


 


“Honey” she said in a whisper


“I surely love the number sixty nine


 So if you want you can have all you want


…for just three sixty nine


 


Was it the morning sun that woke me


Or the smell of her bacon and coffee so fine


I don’t know but she just smiled and said


Mister you can have all you can eat just


…three sixty- nine

You have to put it to music Fee and let Travis Tritt do the singing. You'll have a hit and so will he. "All you can eat just . . . three sixty-nine." I adore the way you didn't put in a dollar sign. Yummy. This way it's all up to the reader, can be either naughty or nice depends on the reader, me, I'm with SC on the naughty side.
Love it love it love it.
