Lyrics:

Don't wanna die in a Super 8 motel,

Just because somebody's evening didn't go so well

If I ever get back to Bristol,

I'm better off sleeping in the county jail

Don't wanna die in a Super 8 motel




Having such a sweet night audience was just right drinking like a pirate do

Don't wanna sleep yet buddy, it's a good bet, I'll raise more hell than you

Do a couple rails and chase your own tail and talk about the bad ole days

Tremor in a tee shirt telling me her heart hurt honey, let me count the ways

Then a big boy busted in, screaming at his girlfriend, waving 'round a fungo bat

Bass player stepping up brandishing a coffee cup he took it in the baby fat




I don't wanna die in a Super 8 motel,

Just because somebody's evening didn't go so well

If I ever get back to Bristol,

I'm better off sleeping in the county jail

I don't wanna die in a Super 8 motel




Finally got the room clear bleeding from my left ear feeling pretty bad for the maid

Lost a couple drinks and my dinner in the sink and I woke up with the bed still made

Wasn't quite morning I wasn't quite breathing my heart, way up in my throat

Girl starts screaming and the maid starts screaming and it looks like it's all she wrote

Well, they slapped me back to life and they telephoned my wife and they filled me full of Pedialyte

Saw my guts, saw my glory it would make a great story if I ever could remember it right




I don't wanna die in a Super 8 motel,

Just because somebody's evening didn't go so well

If I ever get back to Bristol,

I'm better off sleeping in the county jail

I don't wanna die in a Super 8 motel
