(words by Frank Cruz, music by Frank Cruz and Christopher Dixon)
Well, I kicked and cussed and screamed. I must’ve gone a million miles
or more between that hard dirt floor and the California line.
God, I was just a kid myself, three children and a wife.
Working since my father died but working made me feel so alive
with all the boys, drinking after quitting time.
Shooting shit and telling lies about the money that we made
or the girls down at the café.
Boys I’m telling you,
I’m gonna make her mine someday.
Well, I kicked and cussed and fought like hell when she told me she was late,
but I loved her and she loved me too so I made it right that day.
I knew that Goshen’s not the kind of town that’s gonna give a man a break.
See, I watched it work my father to his grave and I knew that it’d treat me the same.
Me and all the boys, drinking after quitting time.
Shooting shit and telling lies about the plans that we had made.
But my boy is getting older and there’s another on the way.
It’s almost time.
I’m gonna bust this town someday.
Well, I kicked and cussed and screamed and prayed and we got across okay.
Still the desert’s not the kind of place you wanna visit in the day
but that old Dodge she held up nice. Gil knows we’re on the way,
he says the girls can sleep with Brenda in the room,
tomorrow we’ll find work,
tonight he’ll show me round Los Angeles. Introduce me
to all the boys, drinking after quitting time.
Shooting shit and telling lies about the movie stars they made.
Well, from the ocean to Ohio maybe men are all the same
but what do I know?
I’m gonna make her mine—
I’m gonna bust this town—
I’m just a kid myself anyway.
