The Lyrics

Written for "Delaware Unleashed," a community theater fundraiser, in 2002.
Roadkill Diner

I been driving this truck so long
List'nin' to country songs
Felt every dip in the road from Laurel to Dover
I know every greasy spoon
And tavern and res-tau-rant between here and the moon
But there's one place that's surprises
With its strange appetizers
And I'm headin there where the headlights are shinin' on me

At the Roadkill Diner
Where it's hard to eat when your sandwich won't close its eyes
At the Roadkill Diner
It's the only place I know where you have to shave your fries
And your waitress can tie her own flies

The highway's their marketplace
All the entrees have a face
The Blue Plate special today once answered to Rover
They've got woodchuck or duck or buck
Or any living thing that can't outrun a truck
Yes it's a place that surprises
With its live appetizers
So I'm headin there where the headlights are shinin' on me

At the Roadkill Diner
Where it's hard to eat when your sandwich won't close its eyes
At the Roadkill Diner
It's the only place I know where you have to shave your fries
And your waitress can tie her own flies

At the Roadkill Diner
Where it's hard to eat when your sandwich won't close its eyes

At the Roadkill Diner
It's the only place I know where you have to shave your fries
