In the world of big rig truckers, Shaky Town is referring to Los Angeles, due to the earthquakes that make the buildings "shake". San Francisco is commonly referred to as the "Gay Bay."
In the song "Convoy" by C.W. McCall (Bill Fries), he refers to the convoy being on I-10 a mile out of Shaky Town. I-10 does not run into SanFran.

Trucker slang for San Franscisco.
Was the dark of the moon on the sixth of June,
In a Kenworth pullin' logs,
Cab-over Pete with a reefer on,
And a Jimmy haulin' hogs,
We is headin' for bear on I 1-0,
'Bout a mile outta Shaky Town,
I says, "Pig Pen, this here's the Rubber Duck,
And I'm about to put the hammer down." -"Convoy" by C.W. McCall
