      Merle Haggard - Bill Woods From Bakersfield Música y Letra

      An oil town that really had it's boon during the heart of the depression
      And Bakersfield also destined to become somewhat of a center for country music
      And even as back as the early 50's it began to gain national recognition
      For the popularity of songs like Dear John Letter Ferlin Husky's Gone
      And a string novelity hits from Leonard Sipes or better known as Tommy Collins
      Country music is a profession in Bakersfield
      And like all other professions whether it be that of a Doctor
      Or a Scientist or a steady ditch digger
      Everyone seems to have a particular someone who offered that helping hand
      At the right time
      And country music is no exception
      But in Bakersfield that same helping hand kept reachin' out time after time
      To different people such as Jeanne Sheppard Ferlin Husky Tommy Collins
      Buck Owens Billy Mize Herb Henson Merle Haggard and also Red Simpson
      Who saw reason to compose this song called Bill Woods From Bakersfield
      Bill here's to you...
      
      [Sang:]
      Let me tell you all a story bout a guitar pickin' man
      To me he is the greatest picker in the land
      He's taught me how to play in G and he taught me how to sing in key
      Bill Woods from Bakersfield the Bakersfield guitar man.
      
      Well Bill gave old Buck the first job he ever had
      Bill must've been a good teacher cause old Buck didn't do too bad
      He sets up there chewin' his ole cigar playin' Wildwood Flower on his guitar
      Bill Woods from Bakersfield the Bakersfield guitar man.
      
      Well Bill never hit it big but he didn't miss it far
      And in my book he'll always be considered a star
      I followed him and he taught me guitar pickin' and harmony
      Bill Woods from Bakersfield the Bakersfield guitar man.
      
      When the roll is called up yonder and we've all met our quest
      I bet he'll be chosen to pick there with the best
      Up there with his gold guitar well things're right Bill will be a star
      Bill Woods from Bakersfield the Bakersfield guitar man.
      
      Well everybody loves old Bill cause he's quite a man
      And if anybody should need some help well he'll sure lend you a hand
      There's one more thing I'd like to say before my story's through
      Bill Woods from Bakersfield we're all proud of you...
