Pack up all your dishes Make note of all good wishes Say goodby to the landlord for me That sum-bitch has always bored me Throw out them old LA papers And that moldy box of vanilla wafers Adios to all this concrete Gonna get me some dirt road back street. If I can just get off of that . freeway Without getting killed or caught Down that road in a cloud of smoke For some land that I ain't bought bought bought If I can just get off of that .
This song was written by Jerry Jeff Walker's fellow Texan songwriter, Guy Clark, who released his own version in 1975. It was a fitting song for Walker, who had recently left New York for Austin, where he would make his home. Clark wrote the song after a falling out with his landlord in Los Angeles, which prompted his move to Nashville. Steve Earle covered this song on GUY, his 2019 tribute album to his longtime friend Guy Clark. He told The Boot that though he heard the Jerry Jeff Walker's version of "LA Freeway" first, the arrangement for his cover is "note for note" the way Guy Clark played his version. And I know how he played it, because I sat across the room from him watching him play it," Earle added.
