THE ROAD KILL BILL

Well our legislators passed it, now itís law in Tennessee
What we find on the highway is legal now to eat
Deer, raccoon and possum have all become fair game
Itís an open-season smorgasbord on every state highway

We used to swerve to miss Ďem, but the grocery billís so high
That we supplement our shoppiní out on the centerline
Grandpa says itís the best thing since Rooseveltís New Deal
ĎCause it ainít like a handout, itís more like Meals on Wheels

CHORUS
We got the road kill, the road kill bill,
Now folks in Tennessee can get their fill
Itís given brand-new meaning to the phrase "hot off the grill"
Now that we have the road kill bill

They laughed at us on Leno and tried to put us down
But when a buck will feed the family, look whoís laughiní now
This stuff is all free-ranginí, organic to the bone
Just a little tar and gasoline and itís ready to take home

REPEAT CHORUS

So welcome friends and neighbors from all across this land
The more cars on the highway, you know the better chance we stand
And if youíre driviní after sundown, be sure and use your brights
ĎCause weíll clean up behind you and eat like kings tonight

REPEAT CHORUS

REPEAT CHORUS (WITH NEW SECOND LINE):
Now we got the road kill, the road kill bill,
Our next meal might be just over the hill
Itís given brand-new meaning to the phrase "hot off the grill"
Now that we have the road kill bill
