Lyrics Deerslayer

Well late one night while drivin' home
I stopped to use a roadside phone
To call my wife and tell her I's headed back
When somewhere out of that mist and fog came a big deer runnin' from a pack of dogs
And that deer ran right into the side of my Cadillac
Well it cracked like thunder when he banged his head
And the deer fell over and I thought he was dead and it spooked the dogs and they ran off back into the woods
So I picked that deer up by his feet
And layed him out real neat in my backseat
And I'm thinkin' some venison stew might taste real good
Yeah that head'll look real good up on the wall
What with those big antlers and all, Mmh-mmh
Well I started to put my car in drive
When son of a gun he came alive
Kickin' and a snortin' in the back of my Cadillac
Breakin' windows and smashin' doors
I'm not gonna say what he did on the floor
And then he jumped on the seat and stomped up and down my back
Well I was just tryin' to stay alive so I jumped out and left the deer inside
Ran to the phone so
I could call nine-one-one
And then I heard a noise and I froze in my tracks
Sounded like those dogs might be comin' back and I looked up and sho 'nuff here they come
Now leadin' that pack was a big ol' hound with his ears a floppin' and his nose to the ground
And I knew he wouldn't like me stealin' his deer
Now that deer had his antlers up through the sunroof
And I'm climbin' up the telephone booth when that dog jumped up and bit me on the rear
Help gimme the police
Thank God for nine-one-one
Somebody get on out here quick and be sure to bring your gun
I got hound dogs nippin' at my heels and Bambi's wreckin' my Coup De Ville
Help gimme the police
Thank God for nine-one-one
Well those hound dogs held us both at bay 'til the police came and chased 'em away
And then they said
Buddy you can drop that phone now and come on down
We can't think of any rhyme or reason for you havin' that deer cos' it's out of season
I think we better all just go see the judge back in town
Well, well, well you see yer honor
I, I'd just like to mention, uh that deer was in bad need of medical attention
And uh, uh, uh would you believe
I, I's takin' him to the vet, uh-uh
He said thirty days and you do it again and I'll lock you up 'til Lord knows when
And teach you a lesson you never will forget uh-uh
Now my Cadillac's a total wreck
I got hoof prints all over my back and dog bites on my toes and up my shins, uh
Yeah my wife's run off
My job is gone
And I'm here in the jailhouse all alone
And I know one thing
I will never say again
Help gimme the police
Thank God for nine-one-one
Somebody get on out here quick and be sure to bring your gun
I got hound dogs nippin' at my heels and Bambi's wreckin' my Coup De Ville
Help gimme the police
Thank God for nine-one-one
I tell you one thing
From now on road kill is off my menu
At least from now on
I'll make sure it's dead not just playin' possum, uh
Venison stew, uh
I'll take chicken noodle soup any day, hee hee
Barbecue is good too and sausage, hey
Jimmy Dean is my hero
Whoa
