Well he rolls just like the wind and he wears the celluloid thin
He’s Hasil Jakebrake – Independent Filmtrucker
The sprockets count the miles off, like a picket fence in interlock
And Hasil he don’t look back, he’s an outlaw
Pa: Hey Ma, did you see that trucker go?
Ma: How’d he do a film that fine with only 30K?
Boy: Hey mister! Hey mister! I’m gonna be just like him when I grow up….
Yeah his logic’s convoluted, he’s eternally persecuted
The rig he rides is obsolete and ornery
With a Bolex by his side, he’s like a Don Quixote in his stride
You touch his 16 and you’ll see his fury
Smokey: Hey boy, you pull that rig over, you hear? You can’t cut a sequence like that, it’s nothing but jump cuts! Lemme see your press kit! You got any distribution?
Well, I don’t care if I do dah, do dah, do dah, do….
“Will I see this big rig home? Will my final cut get fin’ly shown?
And why does every highway lead to L.A?
To Hollywood I said, “Be damned!
That door is closed, I heard it slam!
I’ll stay out on the highway shooting Plus-X.”
