The Last Drop Of Oil

Written By: Jeff and Trudy Roth

O, when the last drop of oil is sucked from the ground,
That’ll be Jesus’s cue to come back around
Gather the the faithful for their final reward—
A hereafter cruise with ‘W’ aboard.

I chopped my own firewood to warm myself twice.
I shoveled coal clinkers and that ain’t nice,
I was doing my best to heat things naturally,
When I saw the light in George’s energy policy.

I slept with a friend, I slept with another.
I even tried sleepin’ with my best friend’s mother,
I was doing my best to keep warm creatively
When I saw the light in George’s energy policy.

O, when the last drop of oil is sucked from the ground,
That’ll be Jesus’s cue to come back around
Gather the the faithful for their final reward—
A hereafter cruise with ‘W’ aboard.

Why did I worry, why did I whine,
That we’re burning our bounty one tank at a time?

I captured the wind to turn on my lights,
I collected the sunshine to warm up my nights,
I was doing my best to turn on alternatively,
When I saw the light in George’s energy policy.

O, when the last drop of oil is sucked from the ground,
That’ll be Jesus’s cue to come back around
Gather the the faithful for their final reward—
A hereafter cruise with ‘W’ aboard.
Gather the the faithful for their final reward—
A hereafter cruise with ‘W’ aboard.
