Have a case of cold pills
soaking in a milk jug
hydrochloric acid, iodine and phosphorus
Careful not to get any on you
when you shake it up.
That's the way we cook it up in
Calico County,
Calico County

Born in a double wide out behind the county
No momma never told me
why daddy didn't live with us
Only picture I had he's climbing on a prison bus
Stencil on his back said Calico County
Calico County
Whoa

My little brother Bobby
stole a Coca Cola truck
Drove it in the cemetary,
Bobby doesn't give a fuck.
Thirteen tombstones fits a steel on the bus
Ain't that much money in Calico County
Calico County

Outta here someday
Ain't that what I use to say
Army wouldn't take me so I guess
I'm gonna have to stay
Friday night, dog fight
sucking on a meth pipe
till I lay it down to die in Calico County
Calico County, Calico County
