      About "I Wish I Could See Bakersfield"

      Lyrics for Craig Morgan - "I Wish I Could See Bakersfield"

      I was takin' a walk through a small country city
      Just seem' what there was to see
      I sat down to read a historical marker
      When I felt someone sit down by me

      He leaned on the tank that was helping his breathing
      Said it's bad when your body is gone
      I said this is sure a nice town that you've got here
      He said yeah, but there's no place like home

      I wish I could see Bakersfield
      Where the oil wells are pumpin'
      The oranges are bloomin'
      And the grapevine winds down from the hill

      When I close my eyes I can touch the clear skies
      At the corner where I used to live
      Oh I wish I could see Bakersfield
      He said you don't ever know where life's gonna lead you

      When you go ramblin' off down the track
      Sometimes I wish I'd never left California
      Then I couldn't want to go back

      Recitation:
      He said "You know, I used to be a well-known country singer
      Made my first record back in 1953
      At one time Buck Owens was my lead guitar player

      And ol' Hag once wrote a song about me"
      I wish I could see Bakersfield
      Where the oil wells are pumpin'
      The oranges are bloomin'

      And the grapevine winds down from the hill
      When I close my eyes I can touch the clear skies
      At the corner where I used to live
      Oh I wish I could see Bakersfield
      Oh I wish I could see Bakersfield
