King of Bakersfield

Published 2014 Bicycle Spaniard Music (BMI).

I got a double wide in my own merlot vineyard
I got plenty of space to park my dually truck
I never have to deal with LA traffic 
life is good they call me the king of  Bakersfield

I work from dusk to dawn for paramount pictures
set carpenter and all around handy man
back in Bakersfield I got a sinaloan beauty
Life is good they call me king of bakersfield

We got wide open spaces
for my friends to come drink beer
we got a stage in the back with band
two stepping all night long

I got some motorcycle riding neighbors
we never have no trouble round here
all my friends say I live like a king in Bakersfield

Do what you want if you ain't hurting no one 
Ain't nobody’s business how you live your life
I'm a red state union man from California
Life is good they call me king of Bakersfield

    New CD is fantastic. Your are quite a wordsmith Mr. Lowery! Saw the 2011 tour with CVB playing Key Lime Pie and Cracker doing Kerosene Hat. Highlight of the decade!!! Glad to know there are still great bands playing music that makes life better.

    Great show at Mississippi Studios on March 15th! Cracker has been one of my favorite bands since I was in junior high school. So glad you're still putting out great music.
