Bakersfield — 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 novelty 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 reaching out time after time
To different people such as Jeanne Sheppard, Ferlin Husky, Tommy Collins
Buck Owens, Billy Myers, 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
Let me tell you all a story bout a guitar picking 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 have been a good teacher cause old Buck didn't do too bad
He sets up there chewing his old cigar playing 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 picking 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 are right Bill will be a star
Bill Woods from Bakersfield the Bakersfield guitar man
Well everybody loves old Bill because 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
