"Bread & Water" as written by and George Ryan Bingham....
I've lived without bread and I've lived without water
Stuck outside the middle of the desert wishin' I was home
Long way from no where, wishin' I was somewhere
Sangre de Cristo to the Devils Backbone

I've been to California and North Carolina
Hung with the hippies in Austin and the cowboys of Mexico
I've laid up in Fort Worth with beautiful ladies
Hitch hiked on down 281 and hit the rodeo in San Anton

In the back of a Ranchero, I rode down to Laredo
Had a good time at the la posada, yea you know I was left alone
On a rig out of El Paso, rainin' down in Houston
Told the truck driver put the pedal to the metal cause Houston gets me down
On down to Louisiana, Whiskey River Landing
Crawfish pie and eat jambalaya with a big ole coon ass smile

    General CommentI love this music video. & the song. It's country, but not that shitty pop country. Oh yea, and girls, check him out... he's pretty damn good lookin too :)

    I think this song( and entire album) has so much meaning to me, because it's about the rural life. I live in a 500 person town. I can relate to it. But, not saying that anybody else can't... It just feels like home to me.
