 A couple of frat guys from Abilene 
drove out all night to see Robert Earl Keen 
at the K-PIG Swine and Soire Dance. 
They wore baseball caps and khaki pants. 

They wanted cigarettes, so to save a little money 
They bummed one off this hippie That smelled kinda funny. 
And next thing they knew they were both pretty hungry
and pretty thirsty too

 They found a store with a sign that said their beer was coldest. 
So they sent in Brad ‘cause he looked the oldest. 
He got a case of beer and a candy bar, 
walked over to where all the registers are 

laid his fake I.D. on the counter top. 
The clerk looked, and turned to look back up and stopped. 
He said “Son, I ain’t gonna call the cops, but I’m gonna have to keep this card” 
the guys both took it pretty hard.

Oh, how happy we would be
had we only brought a better fake ID

They met another old hippie named Sleepy John, 
claimed to be the one from the Robert Earl Keen song 
So they gave him all their cash, he bought them some brews. 
Was a beautiful day out in Santa Cruz 

They were feelin’ so good it Should of been a crime. 
The crowd was cool, and the band was prime. 
They made it back up front to their seats Just in time to they could sing with all their friends 
“the road goes on forever and the party never ends”
