Lyrics to "Streets of Bakersfield"

KUZZ AM & FM is spearheading the tribute and Program Director Evan Bridwell says stations from all formats are expected to play the 1988 version of the song, featuring Owens and Dwight Yoakam.
"It was his last No. 1 and it's the one everyone is most familiar with. Not only are stations in town and regionally participating, but we're getting calls from stations across the country that are joining in as well. I encourage every station who wants to be a part of this to do the same."
Owens' funeral is Sunday in Bakersfield.
