I'm sittin' here waitin' in the Tillamook County Jail.
I'm hoping that she's not so mad now that she doesn't even pay my bail.
If I was her, I'm not so sure
I wouldn't keep on movin' down the trail.
I'm sittin' here waitin' in the Tillamook County Jail.

Got a lump on my head and a boot print on my chest.
What the guys in here call the Tillamook county lie detector test.
Well I did my best,
but as a you mighta guessed
it's a tough test not to fail.
I'm sittin' here waitin' in the Tillamook County Jail.

One phone call, two Tylenol,
four cold grey walls closin' in.
If I ever do get out
on that highway again,
I ain't never goin' back to Tillamook County.
No, I ain't never goin' back to Tillamook County.

It all started when I had a little trouble with a guy on the highway crew.
And that lyin' son of a gun,
he told 'em I done some things that I didn't do.
They came runnin' for me down 101,
lights flashin' on my tail,
and now I'm sittin' here waitin' in the Tillamook County Jail.

One phone call, two Tylenol,
four cold grey walls closin' in.
If I ever do get out
on this highway again,
I ain't never goin' back to Tillamook County.
No, I ain't never going' back to Tillamook County.
Nope.

(instrumental)

I'm sittin' here waitin' in the Tillamook County Jail.
Now I'm still hoping that she's not so mad now
that she doesn't even pay my bail.
Well come down on vacation,
gonna leave on probation,
have to send all my money through the mail.
I'm gonna send all my money through the Tillamook County Jail.
Yes I'm a gonna send all my money to the Tillamook County Jail.
Hey, I'm a gonna send all my money to the Tillamook County Jail
