    Lyrics

    If you're headin' south on
    Georgia one twenty-nine
    Straight into Athens past the Clark County line
    There's an old Texaco right across
    From the Athens Woolworth
    Billy Joe Taylor's underneath that lift
    There ain't a car on the planet that he can't fix
    He swears on his chrome-plated ratchet
    That his heaven on earth

    Well, he can make a rusty muffler purr like a kitten
    Or an old Nash Rambler top out at one-fifty
    Georgia's never seen a man more at peace
    Than when Billy's got his hands in
    Athen's Grease

    Six days a week, he's a man on a mission
    He's the redneck Picasso of
    The manual transmission
    And the only man in town who can make
    Charlie Vincent's van go
    When the sun goes down
    And the day is endin'
    Billy's still rockin' with a rack and pinion
    Long as that boy's at work, well he's right at home

    Well, he can make a rusty muffler purr like a kitten
    Or an old Nash Rambler top out at one-fifty
    Georgia's never seen a man more at peace
    Than when Billy's got his hands in
    Athen's Grease

    Well, he's a rotatin,' lug nuttin,'
    Spark pluggin' good ole boy
    With his name on his shirt
    And Thelma Lou Taylor likes to hang out at the station
    'Cause she loves to watch him work

    Well, he can make a rusty muffler purr like a kitten
    Or an old Nash Rambler top out at one-fifty
    Georgia's never seen a man more at peace
    Than when Billy's got his hands in
    Athen's Grease

    Yeah, Georgia's never seen a man more at peace
    Than when Billy's got his hands in
    Athen's grease
    Athen's grease, baby
