Wow, trucker country!! I like the sound/production of this and the simplicity of the song. The trucker radio references at the end are nice but not sure I understood all the names. Good work!

Bakersfield Bound

Written by Tony True

Chorus
Well goodbye Boise I’m Bakersfield bound
I got this diesel screamin’ with the hammer down
Cause my little woman’s waitin’ back in my home town
So goodbye Boise I’m Bakersfield bound

Verse 1
Just last month I spent a week of nights in San Antone
Left her cryin’ at the door sayin’ “baby don’t be gone too long”
She knows I love her but I love my life on the road
But now I miss her like mad so I gotta make this semi roll

Chorus
So goodbye Boise I’m Bakersfield bound
I got this diesel screamin’ with the hammer down
Cause my little woman’s waitin’ back in my home town
So goodbye Boise I’m Bakersfield bound…goodbye…

Solo - Chorus

I’ve been a truck drivin’ man since I was first able to drive
I’ve had the white line fever so bad, didn’t think I’d survive
Now I listen to Dudley, the two Red’s, Simpson and Sovine
They get me through the miles and help I arrive alive

Chorus
So goodbye Boise I’m Bakersfield bound
I got this diesel screamin’ with the hammer down
Cause my little woman’s waitin’ back in my home town
So goodbye Boise I’m Bakersfield bound
Ya goodbye Boise I’m Bakersfield bound
