BAKERSFIELD WINE 2010
MICKEY CLARK, RUSTY BLADEN
SNAKE RIVER MUSIC, BMI

WELL I COME FROM CONCHO COUNTY IN TEXAS
WHERE IT'S FLATTER THAN A FIDDLER'S BOW
I GOT BOOTS IN MY ROOTS AND RODEO CHUTES
AND I LOVE TO PLAY THE COTTON EYED JOE

DADDY WAS A FLAT LAND FARMER WHEN I LEFT
WITH A GUITAR AND A MOUNTAIN TO CLIMB
MAMA SAID THE BOY'S GONNA DO WHAT HE'LL DO
DON'T CHA WORRY NONE HE'S GONNA DO FINE

PRE-CHORUS
THEN I TOOK A LEFT TURN IN DENVER
WITH A GIRL FROM CAROLINE
SHE LEFT ME FOR THE HOLLYWOOD LIGHTS
I FOLLOWED THAT BAKERSFIELD SIGN

CHORUS
NOW I'M TRYIN' TO LOSE, THOSE L.A BLUES
DRINKIN' THIS BAKERSFIELD WINE


THERE'S A RUN DOWN BAR ON MONTEREY STREET
ME AND THE BAND CALL HOME
WE RATTLE THE WALLS TILL THE VERY LAST CALL
I'M LONELY BUT I'M NEVER ALONE

'CAUSE THERE'S PEDAL STEEL AND FIDDLER'S REELS
A LITTLE BIT OF BUCK AND MERLE
A PRETTY FACE OR TWO BUT ALL I DO
IS THINK ABOUT MY HOLLYWOOD GIRL

PRE-CHORUS
AND I WISH SHE'D RODE OFF WITH ME, UP HIGHWAY 99
AND I WONDER IF SHE EVER THINKS OF ME
WHILE SHE'S WAITIN' FOR HER STAR TO SHINE
CHORUS

CAN'T SEEM TO LOSE, THOSE L.A BLUES
DRINKIN' THIS BAKERSFIELD WINE

BRIDGE:
THERE'S A HUNDRED LONELY MILES
BETWEEN HER DREAMS AND MINE

CHORUS

STILL I CAN'T LOSE, THOSE L.A BLUES
DRINKIN' THIS BAKERSFIELD WINE

WISH I COULD LOSE, THOSE L.A BLUES
DRINKIN' THIS BAKERSFIELD WINE

BREAK
