Julie wrote this song based on a quote by Matt Hawkins at the Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield, KS.


All day at the office makes a body grow weak
I've gotta dress up all fancy, be polite when I speak
I wanna kick off my shoes, grow my beard long
Take fewer showers and sing this song

Oh find me a place where guitars strum all night
Where strangers share drugs in the firelight
Where the bands play a show in the woods somewhere
And the whiskey smells like dirt and beard hair

Well I've filled up my cooler with string cheese and beer
Got my bag chair and my flip flops 'cause it's that time of year
I'm gonna cram all my friends in the old pickup truck
And we'll all hit the road heading for you know what
