Back in the late 1970's, the "Arab Oil Embargo" (OPEC) caused a gasoline shortage in the United States. People would drive around looking for any gas station that was open, then form long lines to fill their vehicles up. Due to this heavy demand, it wasn't unusual for gas stations to run short of gasoline and have to close, even with customers still waiting in line. Other stations would ration their supplies and only fill up a certain number of cars each day. The station attendent would count off the number of cars remaining and place a "last car" sign on that vehicle. Everyone behind that car had to leave and find another line...somewhere. These events naturally initiated several "novelty" songs about the situation. "Sweet Jesus, Please Send Me Some Gas-O-Line," by Pat Mandell & The 8 MPGers, "Waitin' For Gas" by One Hand Clapping, and a song by Tiny Tim called "Tip Toe To The Gas Pumps" were some of the most memorable ones.- I B Emerson

Song Lyrics:
Sweet Jesus Please Send Me Some Gas-O-Line...

(musical interlude)

My Truck, She's A Beauty,
A Four-Wheel Drive Cutie,
No Man Could Ask More Of His Rig,
She Purrs Like A Kitten,
She's Quick To The Git-ten,
But She Drinks Up The Gas Like A Pig.

Sweet Jesus Please Send Me Some Gas-O-Line,
I'm Stuck In The Driveway Of Life,
You Turned All That Water Into Sweet Wine,
This Time Make It Gas-O-Line.

The Rabbits Disgrace Me,
The Pacers Out Pace Me,
Civics Make Me Eat Dust,
But, There's A Good Reason,
For This Small Car Treason,
My Gas Tank Is Filled With Rust!

Sweet Jesus Please Send Me Some Gas-O-Line,
I'm Stuck In The Driveway Of Life,
You Turned All That Water Into Sweet Wine,
This Time Make It Gas-O-Line.

I've Sat Here For Hours,
My Mood's Fully Soured,
Just Heard The Unleaded's All Sold,
The Way Things Are Headed,
It'd Be Cheaper Instead If,
Gas Were A Bi-Product Of Gold!

Sweet Jesus Please Send Me Some Gas-O-Line,
I'm Stuck In The Driveway Of Life,
You Turned All That Water Into Sweet Wine,
This Time Make It Gas-O-Line...

Sweet Jesus Please Send Me Some Gas-O-Line,
I'm Stuck In The Driveway Of Life,
You Turned All That Water Into Sweet Wine,
This Time Make It Gas-O-Line...

Sweet Jesus Please Send Me Some Gas-O-Line,
I'm Stuck In The Driveway Of Life,
You Turned All That Water Into Sweet Wine,
This Time Make It Gas-O-Line...

(Fading) Sweet Jesus Please Send Me Some Gas-O-Line,
I'm Stuck In The Driveway Of Life,
You Turned All That Water Into Sweet Wine,
This Time Make It Gas-O-Line...

(Fading To Background) Sweet Jesus Please Send Me Some Gas-O-Line,
I'm Stuck In The Driveway Of Life,
You Turned All That Water Into Sweet Wine,
This Time Make It Gas-O-Line.

Attendent: "Yeah, Last Car" "Last Car Here"
Male Voice: "Hey, What Do You Mean?"
Attendent: "Sorry, Last Car."
Male Voice: "Hey, I've Been Here Three Hours"
Attendent: "I Don't Make The Rules Buddy"
Female Voice: "Can I Get Gas?"
Attendent: "We're Out, Sorry"
(Sound Of Fist Slamming Into Car Roof)
