Old country, new vibe. Inspiration from Dolly Parton to the Dalai Lama, Global Prairie Rock is an all-gal, Alt Country cover band that pushes the limits of country fun until your beer bleeds. Let's go Honky Tonkers!

Biography

GPR was formed when four gals partied like rock stars at a cabin in the woods and decided that, while we had the "partying" part down, it was time to amp up the "rock star" part. In short, it was time to play music again. We all played instruments back in the day. We all sang. And we were all ready to put our energy back into creating something fun. And funny. (And fun.)

And so, the Funtry Movement was born.

From honky tonk to Americana, we jammed out some cover tunes and started playing gigs. Reviews were positive. Passed hats were overflowing. And we're still at it.

GPR baby. That's Global Prairie Rock. (Let's go Honky Tonkers!)

Lyrics

Four Egg Omelet (And an 18-Wheeler)

Written By: Elissa Gjertson

Four Egg Omelet (And an 18-Wheeler)
By Elissa Gjertson | Country / Humor

You pulled your rig up to the diner door,
When you walked in, I almost hit the floor.
You sat at the counter and ordered a cup,
It didn’t take long for you to look me up
After breakfast I’ll have you beggin’ for more.

CHORUS:
4-egg omelet and an 18-wheeler,
Face like that and I put out my feelers,
Best lookin’ dish this side of Mexico.
You’re gonna make me doe-see-DO,
I’ll order up a side of you,
And I’ll be takin’ this one to go.

Now this ol’ waitress hadn’t felt so much desire...
Was it the grill or the griddle or was it just our fire?
Now it’s warming up, searing hot!
Your lovin’ makes me feel like an astronaut,
Shootin’ me to that truck stop in the sky.

CHORUS:
4-egg omelet and an 18-wheeler,
Face like that and I put out my feelers,
Best lookin’ dish this side of Mexico.
You’re gonna make me doe-see-DO,
I’ll order up a side of you,
And I’ll be takin’ this one to go.

MUSICAL / VOCAL BREAK

Now I’m wonderin’ to be good or bad?
Maybe I should write my phone number on your tab...
Then you catch my eye, take my hand
Lead me to the Promised Land
Saying, “Baby, dessert is waitin’ in my cab...”

CHORUS:
Everyone! 4-egg omelet and an 18-wheeler,
Face like that and I put out my feelers,
Best lookin’ dish this side of Mexico.
You’re gonna make doe-see-DO,
I’ll order up a side of you,
And I’ll be takin’ this one to go!
