I’ve been upside down, eye inside a bottle
No message found, no paper roll
I’ll tell you when you’re down, no sense grievin’ ‘bout tomorrow
For some folks it’s gon’ come, for some it won’t
Well that woman’s love ain’t gonna tie your bootstraps
Just leave you with a hole inside your mug
When you’re inside out, hail gon’ make you useless
Wet and dwelling ‘bout your lousy luck

Well the sun gon’ shine, creeks still roll
Let the trout in Lake Don Pedro bear the load
Country drive, ain’t got to toll, ‘cause it’s sweet like a butter roll

Well you can ride to town, find a little lady
I’m gon’ settle down a little home
But just make damn sure, the “I do” in that woman
Doesn’t end with “not want you at all”

Chorus - Let the trail on Mt. Diablo bear the load

Well they say that time and a little salutations
Can pick you up when you’re down
I'm gonna toe that line, heavy heart and open eyes
Lord hallelujah, I love this town

Chorus - Let the California highways bear the load
