Coupon Grin

by Fresh Oil and Chips

In 2014, Brian Huff and Robert Braathe talked about writing some songs together. In 2015, on a drive through Virginia, Robert saw a sign for Fresh Oil and Chips in a construction zone, and out of this came the name of the band. Our music is an eclectic essay on real life, real women and real men.




There's a rest stop down Highway 57
Where the tourists like to go instead of 7-11
When you want to stay at a motel finer
You won't have to stay for more than 99er

But the clerk waits you
And the sign sedates you
Knowing it's a quarter to nine
You go in
With your coupon grin because you aren't going to pay full price

There's a Piggly Wiggly on Old State 5
Where my little girl likes to take a drive
When I don't want her to be a whiner
I taker over to the diner

The waiter awaits you
And the sign sedates you
Knowing it's a quarter to nine
You go in 
With your coupon grin because you aren't going to pay full price

Coupon grin, coupon grin
You left a rest stop with a coupon grin
Your face beet red like you been drinking gin
Because you gonna check in with a coupon grin

There's a rest stop down Highway 57
Where the tourists like to go instead of 7-11
When you want to stay at a motel finer
You won't have to stay for more than 99er

But the clerk he waits you
And the sign sedates you
Knowing it's a quarter to nine 
You go in
With your coupon grin because you aren't going to pay full price
