The Lyrics

Each year, twenty-four of the nation's best monster trucks gather in Las Vegas, Nevada to compete for the World Championships in Racing and Freestyle, so I wanted to take this George Strait classic and put it into the perspective of a monster truck driver who's desperate to win.
Las Vegas by morning
Thousand miles from home
Everything that I got
Is this truck that I'm depending on
When the moon is high in that Nevada sky
I'll be racing t'ward the finish line
Las Vegas by morning
Las Vegas is on my mind

I broke my rear steer in Houston,
got DQ'ed in Santa Fe
Picked up some freestyle wins
Down in N'awlins and Tampa Bay,
But i'll be lookin' for tens when the scores come in
And I hope those judges aren't blind
Las Vegas by morning
The World Finals are on my mind

Las Vegas by morning
A thousand miles from home
Everything that I've got
Is this truck that I'm depending on
I ain't got a dime, but what I've got is mine
I'm not rich but Lord I'm free
Las Vegas by morning
Las Vegas is where I'll be.

Hey Dude - This is one car-crushing flame-snorting monster parody! ;D

Fine job with the mood, the story, and consistency....only a few suggestions...pacing-wise. We're all kind' a saddled with syllable count syndrome, here. Original first line has seven..yours had six...you might have added.."Make Las Vegas by morning".. or "In" Las Vegas...etc. etc. ..Again, great feeling and mood to the parody, just a few spots where a bit of syllable discipline could have made it even better...4-5-5
