"Come on boys, let's hit the road!"
We left L.A. on Sunday, in Lubbock by Tuesday 
That's where we played our second show 
Where nobody knew us, so nobody noticed the songs that the band didn't know 
We were eatin' up the white lines, makin' good time 
Diggin' the songs on the radio 
And that party kept a movin' and you know what we were doin' 
We were smokin' up that California gold 

Now everyone was glad, "The Weight" played by The Band 
You know I never had that song ever let me down 
And I didn't notice I was speedin' but in the rear-view mirror blinkin' 
Were them state trooper's lights all spinnin' 'round 
We rolled down the windows, so we didn't think that he would notice 
Something smellin' funny in that smoke cloud 
And he asked, 'What you boys a-hidin'?' and we were all silent 
'Cause I think he heard us clear and loud 

And we were busted 
Busted in Baylor County 
Busted, busted in Baylor County 
"Oh no, my Weed!" 
He spread us all along the highway, cuffed us all and turned us away 
And started pokin' round the truck for cake 
And we all stood there high as a kite, and he found it alright 
And don't y'all make light of the number one dope dog in the state 
That mutt found the joint in my pocket that was buried and locked up 
In the back of the trailer underneath the guitars and the piano seat 
And off we went to jail all locked up in a cell 
Charged with possession of that sweet leaf 

And we were busted 
Busted in Baylor County 
Busted, busted in Baylor County 
Now I was still pretty buzzed when they called in the judge 
Who greeted me with a smile and a warm handshake 
And he said, "I'm so sorry" 'cause they couldn't un-arrest us 
But that was up to some other official magistrate 
And he said, 'Don't you worry, son, all the charges are gone 
But I've got a few autographs for you to sign.' 
And they sprang us out right quick, so we could get up on the stick 
To Wichita Falls by show time 
To tell 'em
We were busted 
Busted in Baylor County 
Busted, busted in Baylor County 
Busted, busted in Baylor County 
Busted, busted in Baylor County
