I see you standin' in the sun like an iron dinosaur
Got your tired head restin' on a west Texas floor
We were really something son back in our time
Yeah we broke a lot of hearts and we made a lot of dimes

[Chorus:]
Pump jack pump jack, pump a little more
'Cause daddy's cut it thin at the general store
Gentleman's dime don't float that long
Hey, pump jack pump before my good name's gone

You know I lost my baby to a wildcat dream
I was fueled by the crude and the gasoline
It's hard to settle down with a roustabout
That oil burns hot till the oil burns out

[Chorus]

Standin' in the panhandle
Cussin' this well
Wishing like the devil
Praying like hell
At the end of this string is a pot of black gold
Sittin' in the bottom of another giant hole

[Chorus]

Yeah pump jack pump before my good name's gone

Pump jack pump jack
Pump a little more
Pump jack pump jack
Pump a little more
Yeah pump jack pump jack
Pump a little more
Pump jack pump jack
Pump a little more
