Poem/Lyrics I wrote about a recent trip taken with some good friends
5 dollar rabbit don't run when its supposed to

5 dollar rabbit don't run too slow

bird dogs and guns get the blood flowin’

bars and guitars couldn't make us no dough

It's 5 1/2 hours to the place where the birds are

5 1/2 hours is forever in a car

5 1/2 hours a'int nothing but a privilege

when you're getting chauffeured 'round by a radio star

you gotta drive on the dirt to wash the pavement off the tires

got to drink a few beers to get the mind on track

be careful what you feed an East Texas coy dog

what goes in the top will come and get you from the back

A trip in a limo means a 4 wheeled drive

Won’t get lost on a backroad won’t get caught in the snow

Private club brews could make you queer for dumpling

5 ladies in a flat bed could do the same you know

5 dollar rabbit get your rest with the wind blowin'

find you a bush and hole up real tight

on your mark, get set, earth flying as you're goin'

shots to the left, better break for the right

poor little pointers have the cards stacked against them

it hasn't rained in months, noses battered by the dust

they've gone down twice on a point that wasn't true

but every time they freeze, they’ve still got out trust

Who knows what holds them to the last second

is it the grass or the fear that grips them so tight

You can hear their bones shakin' when they see Huey coming

He don't show so often, but he sure shows right

The last 5 dollar rabbit waited for the birds to cause commotion

out of the bush once they were all flyin'

5 bucks slips away, smiles on our faces

at the end of the day if you a'int blastin' you a'int tryin'

We should've stayed off the stage and stayed in the country

we would've stayed in the field with less moon light

just weren’t thinkin’ when we were planning

more dogs out at day then patrons out at night

5 1/2 hours is a long way home

6 1/2 hours with the wind and the rain

God Bless America, the Storms made it perfect

You know next season we'll do it all again
