King of Bakersfield Lyrics

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 bakersfieldI 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 bakersfieldWe got wide open spaces
For my friends to come drink beer
We got a stage in the back with band
Two stepping all night longI got some motorcycle riding neighbors
We never have no trouble round here
All my friends say I live like a king in bakersfield

Cracker is an American alternative rock band fronted by Camper Van Beethoven singer David Lowery, with guitarist Johnny Hickman. They are best known for their hit songs "Low" and "Teen Angst (What the World Needs Now)".

The band's website once noted Cracker as "The only band to ever open for both Grateful Dead and Ramones," a unique distinction which is also indicative of the band's sound and style. Cracker comfortably mixes influences and sounds ranging from classic country music, psychedelia, punk and folk into their brand of "Americana" style rock.

Lowery and Hickman are inalterable constants. The band continues to tour (as a full band, and also as the "Cracker acoustic duo"). Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
