Headin north on 101

Blastin Highway 61

I know every song Bob Dylan sung

Yeah this old Mustang still can run

Southern whiskey and berry wine

But I'm leavin the south pole far behind
From the Southern Cross to the Big Nail


Spent a couple nights in the county jail

Yeah I'm worn and kinda frail

I still told that judge he could go to hell
Them southern women they're really fine


But I'm leavin the south pole far behind


Southern Cross, the Big Nail
Ride on in to the setting sun
Southern Cross, the Big Nail


Done paid twice for everything I done

Southern Cross, the Big Nail

Southern Man gotta have some fun

Southern Cross, the Big Nail

Yeah this old Mustang still can run


Southern Cross, the Big Nail
The Big Nail continued

Well I'm leaving the south pole far behind
Southern Women, the berry wine


Southern Cross, the Big Nail
Paid twice for everything I done


Southern Cross, the Big Nail

Lookout baby here I come, here I come


Southern Cross, the Big Nail
Southern Cross, the Big Nail

Yeah this old Mustang still can run
Yeah
