Well I’m just 50 miles to Firebaugh
And I’ve got another hour to go
I’ve been driving all night, but I’m feeling alright
Because I’m just about to drop my load
I’m 50 miles to Firebaugh
And I’m going to get her filled up soon
Shooting down the 5 into overdrive
And I’m cruising by the light of the moon

I pulled over the Grapevine with the sun in my eyes
Jamming on the old Jake Brake
And the CHP was gunning for me
On the downside of Pyramid Lake

I was thinking about the Iron Skillet
When I missed the split at 99
But the Maricopa Highway got me back on track
Now everything is just fine

I’m passing through Lost Hills
And popping little white pills
Because I’ve got to make it through the night
And Kettleman City never looked so pretty
With the lights twinkling off to the right
I hope they play this song on Kings Radio
But they probably won’t because it’s new
So Hank and Buck blasting through my truck
Is just going to have to do

A whiff of Harris Ranch is going to make you blanch
But that won’t stop me from dropping in
Because when you’ve got to go, man you’ve got to go
And a little prime rib is no sin

Lord have Mercey Hot Springs, because it’s just the right thing
To rest these old tired bones
I need to find me a Little Panoche Road
So I can make my way back home

Evoking images of desert plains and ghost towns, the music of The Famous is like swallowing hard liquor -- a raw, scorching blast of rocket-fueled, post-punk guitar and country twang -- the blasphemous marriage of indie-styled rock & roll and cowboy laments. ... more
