Hey Pardner' - I hope you enjoy my video! - Thanks for Watching.
The story of how this song came to be.
For years I've explored the back country with my fellow desert rats. One year Dave Heffner, (Mr. Death Valley), was leading a 4x4 tour for the Death Valley '49ers Encampment, and I was his 'tail gunner'.
For those who don't know, I'll explain the duties of a 'tail gunner' as it applies to a 4x4 expedition into the outback of Death Valley.
The duties of the 'tail gunner' are to stay in constant communication with the leader of the expedition while rounding up strays at the back of the pack and letting our illustrious leader know that all of his 'Ducks Are In A Row'. This means that everyone has made the same turns and maneuvers that he has made and no one has misplaced themselves.
SO, as you can tell the 'tail gunner' not only gets to keep the herd together, but also finds himself enclosed in a cloud of dust for most of the run.
On this particular run we had 54 vehicles so the dirt roads were exceptionally well endowed with mother natures fine particulate matter, (dust).
Words started forming in my brain pan so I had my wife write down what was coming forth. After the run was over and I had time to read what was wrote, I decided to take out all the swear words and turn it into a love song instead.
