Mary & I have always enjoyed picking around barns, garages, estate sales hunting up cool things with age and character and the like. So we wrote this song to honor the folks in the show "American Pickers"

lyrics

AMERICAN PICKERS BLUES - By Robert Louis Crane 9-15-13

American Pickers, we're might be headed to your town,
and if you don't mind well, we'd like to have a little look around
We are relic hunting nomads,
on a memorabilia seeking mission
just let me plow through your piles of junk,
It just might improve your cash position

American Pickers, we ain't got no choice
pickin's been running through our veins ever since, we was little girls & boys
There is a method to our madness, its modern day archeology
American Pickers out preserving a little slice of American history

It may may be rusty and all janky, a little moldy, and just a bit stanky
just gimme your garages, barns and basements, I like em loaded to the gills
I'm a dumpster diving daddy, digging hidden treasures, man it gives me the chills

American Pickers, we ain't got no choice
Picken's been running through our veins, ever since we was little girls & boys
There is a method to our madness. It's modern day archeology
American Pickers out preserving a little slice of American history

It gets my motor purring, picking through you secret stash
I dig doing the dirty work in the trenches of what you might think is trash
I'm your fearless fanatic finder, foraging through forgotten fields
I'm a renovating rambler, restoring rusty relics well that's my deal oh yeah

take it way boys (Band rocks out )American pickers, we're coming to your home,
American Pickers, we're picking clean to the bone American pickers, thats what I say

We just dream about junkyards, dilapidated barns and storage sheds
Radical digs and honey holes where no pickers ever been
It's those quirky collecting characters, that we meet we love the most
We're just happy people loving pickers
searching the back roads, from coast to coast
