Big American Headliner

This song is by Captain Tractor and appears on the album North Of The Yellowhead (2005).

Had me a dream, almost obscene
Never had a dream any finer.
Had me a taste, in the land of waste,
And that dream we chased as we became
The big American headliner.

Foamin' at the mouth, as we up and headed south
South of the parallel forty-niner.
Had us a dream, of Rolling Stone magazine,
And all the girls they'd scream as we became
The big American headliner.

Vision of sold out shows, candy for your nose
In America anything goes, as we soon would find.
It doesn't matter what the place is, you can act like Oasis, '
Till yer blue in the faces and you become,
The big American headliner.

Leno said he loved our sound, we're the talk of tinseltown
Everyone and their dog came around, to the scene, to be seen
We did our guest spot on Friends, played our songs on Letterman,
Looked towards the mighty yen, 'cause the Japanese, the Japanese...
The big American headliner.

Woke up in a hotel room, downtown Saskatoon,
Gotta leave this afternoon for Regina.
Betty has got us an opening slot, these warm-up gigs never pay a lot
My patience nerves and credit shot, tonight we open for
(Hey keep the door!),
The big American headliner.
Oh yeah!
And we gotta be on at niner!
Oh yeah!
And we can't use their drum riser!
Oh yeah!
So we steal their fuckin' rider!
Oh yeah! Oh yeah! Oh yeah!

The big American... headliner...
