Simon Brothers Mercantile

A lot of songs get written while waiting for ATM machines to deal justly with us.

Way down in Kimble County on U.S. 2-9-0
Clay Simon's got a mercantile, he'll greet you at the door
'bout everything and anything is there under one roof
we stopped in and got some pictures in case you needed proof

well Roosevelt is hot as hell but them Texas townsfolk sure are swell
they serve up country charm with a smile
there's ice cold beers and souvenirs and camouflage for hunting deers
feel free to sit a spell and stay a while
at ye old Simon Brothers Mercantile

in 1898 it was a post office, no more
they started sellin' groceries in 1924
now look, there is a feed store and a hardware store today
you can even get a fresh-cooked meal at the Back Door Cafe

well Roosevelt is hot as hell but them Texas townsfolk sure are swell
they serve up country charm with a smile
there's ice cold beers and souvenirs and camouflage for hunting deers
feel free to sit a spell and stay a while
at ye old Simon Brothers Mercantile

on aisle one there's dogfood, coffee, dungarees and pans
on aisle two there's crab boil, corned beef, Chili Quick in cans
on aisle three there's soap and candles, saws and Ginsu Knives
on aisle four there's tackle, buck urine and bullseyes

you'll find motor oil and shower heads on aisle five for sale
and here's a fact, way in the back, they're even raisin' quail

when you're ridin' 10 through Texas and you need to stop for gas
this here is an establishment that you should never pass
without stepping out your vehicle and checking out this store
down in Roosevelt, the zipcode 76874

well Roosevelt is hot as hell but them Texas townsfolk sure are swell
they serve up country charm with a smile
there's ice cold beers and souvenirs and camouflage for hunting deers
feel free to sit a spell and stay a while
at ye old Simon Brothers Mercantile
