Beer Can Hill Lyrics

by Merle Haggard

Well, I learned how to walk and I learned how to run in Bakersfield
Should've done time over things I'd done in Bakersfield
I tasted my first taste of romance in Bakersfield
I learned how to fight and I learned how to dance in Bakersfield

Dancin' on Beer Can Hill
Overlookin' Bakersfield
Remembering my first thrill
Dancin' on Beer Can Hill

I made part of my livin' in a honky tonk bar in Bakersfield
Picked a little cotton and a lotta guitar in Bakersfield
Well you couldn't do better but you won't do bad in Bakersfield
Slow dancin' out here is sort of a fad in Bakersfield

I drank a lot of beer since I was a kid in Bakersfield
Did a little time over things I did in Bakersfield
Ten years later made me of the year in Bakersfield
And I'm duckin' and dodgin' and dancin' out here in Bakersfield
