Blue Bandana

Album: single release only (2015)
  • She was dancing in a sundress
    Under a Carolina sunset
    On the last night of Merle Fest
    Told me she ain't missed one since the summer
    She turned 18 hit that road on a gypsy dream
    Hitched a ride in a beat up van
    Following her favorite band

    And now she's a Bonaroo baby
    She's Coachella crazy
    She'll be folking out in Newport
    You've probably seen her before
    Up at Lollapalooza, in the muddy Wakarusa
    She'll be at the Hangout down in Alabama
    Just look for the girl in the blue bandana

    Whoah, whoah

    She had a flower in her hair
    A little smoke was in the air
    We were chillin' in some lawnchairs
    Saying we wish we could've seen Woodstock
    Told me she was leaving in the morning
    Heading down to New Orleans
    Said boy, you oughta come along
    And I knew I shoulda gone

    She's a Bonaroo baby
    She's Coachella crazy
    She'll be folking out in Newport
    You've probably seen her before
    Up at Lollapalooza, in the muddy Wakarusa
    She'll be at the Hangout down in Alabama
    Just look for the girl in the blue bandana

    Whoa, whoa

    Several thousand faces in a crowd
    And I know she's out there somewhere jamming out

    She's my Bonaroo baby
    She's Coachella crazy
    She'll be folking out in Newport
    You've probably seen her before
    Up at Lollapalooza, in the muddy Wakarusa
    She'll be at the Hangout down in Alabama
    Just look for the girl in the blue bandana

    Whoa, whoa

    Now I got a beat up van
    And I'm driving across this land
