Driving Ninety-nine in east Stockton,
Eighteen wheelers ruled the road...
Until they met a hair-pin curve,
Spilling out their heavy load.
The Mariposa freeway exit,
Fed the gleaners in the spring...
Mostly tomatoes on the shoulder,
Sometimes tin cans of everything.
On a good day CB Radios
Gathered neighbors to volunteer...
We assisted the highway clean up crew
When ever a semi spilled with beer.
