California Okie
Buck Owens
Album: California Okie (Single 45) 

Intro: E 

        A                        E
I'm a first-generation, genuine California Okie, 
B7                                 E
Born in Barstow, raised in Bakersfield. 
   A                              E
My Ma and Pa were orphans of the Oklahoma dust bowl. 
       B7                                E
I was born in the back of a rusty Oldsmobile.

E                                B7
My Daddy followed his dream West and when we laid his soul to rest
   A                          E
I knew he found his promised land
                           B7  
And now I am a working man and with the help of the good Lords hand
   A                B7          E
I get to have what daddy never had 

        A                        E
I'm a first-generation, genuine California Okie, 
B7                                 E
Born in Barstow, raised in Bakersfield. 
   A                              E
My Ma and Pa were orphans of the Oklahoma dust bowl. 
       B7                                E
I was born in the back of a rusty Oldsmobile.

E                                     B7
Well I like Jimmy Rodgers songs corn bread beans and honkey tonks
   A                                    E
I like the smell of new mowed field of hay
                                       B7
This valley in my blood and bones the sand walking where I call home
A                   B7             E
Where I belong is where I'm gonna stay

        A                        E
I'm a first-generation, genuine California Okie, 
B7                                 E
Born in Barstow, raised in Bakersfield. 
   A                              E
My Ma and Pa were orphans of the Oklahoma dust bowl. 
       B7                                E
I was born in the back of a rusty Oldsmobile.

E                                  B7         E
I'm born and bread cornbread feed California Okie
