Bakersfield

Bakersfield

Don’t the dust follow one
Don’t the dust follow one
Through the streets and the yards of Bakersfield
All day long in the groves
All day long in the groves
I sing out my song of love to come
When I knock on the door of Julie Long
Through the dust of the moonlight
We’ll be gone
When we drove toward the coast
When we drove toward the coast
I could tell from her silence something’s wrong
Don’t the dust follow one
Don’t the dust follow one
Our love couldn’t last past Bakersfield
And I left her on her porch and was gone
Thinking to myself
Dont’ the dust follow one
I’ll pick one more year then I’ll run
Never to return
Where the dust follows one
Where the dust follows one
