"Workin' at the Car Wash Blues" is a 1974 single written and recorded by Jim Croce. It was the third single released from his album I Got a Name.
"Roller Derby Queen" As Croce explained on his album The Final Tour, this is a song about a woman Jim met doing a gig at a local country and western bar. As they sat and drank together, he came to find out she used to be in the roller derby and that her husband was a state trooper. He described her as being about 400 pounds, saying, "Every time I watched her clap, I could see the fat on her arm jiggling back and forth. It was a beautiful sight." He also pointed out her penchant for hair spray, and how he would see her toting cans of Spray Net back from the supermarket. Croce also claimed that he wouldn't play the song locally, as her husband could "really mess up a nice day."
