A         E                 D         A
I was the youngest boy in a family of four
   D            A                                 E
We lived in Oklahoma  the wind whistled thru our  door
   A               E              D               A
We scratched out a living in the dirt and and the clay
D               A      E               A
I never will forget it untill my dying days
A                    E               D                   A
The dust storms they came at us  the sky turned cold and black
   D              A                         E
We packed up our belonging and never looked back
   A              E                     D         A
We rode out  west toward the sun just a heartbeat away
D                A     E               A
I never will forget it untill my dying days
        A           D             E          F#m
We were Bakersfield Bound and the California dream
         D            A                                        E
Down the road lay the promised lands our fields would all turn green
        A           D             E         F#m
We were Bakersfield bound like so many gone before
        D               A          E               A
Just to cross our River Jordan and reach the other shore
A                             E
When we first set eyes on The San Joaquin
           D                A
Was like a friend we always knew
    D                   A                                   E
The gates swing open so far and wide   even God could drive thru
   A                     E            D                A
We worked the crops from dawn to dust shared along the way
D               A      E               A
I never will forget it untill my dying days
        A           D             E          F#m
We were Bakersfield Bound and the California dream
         D            A                                        E
Down the road lay the promised lands our fields had all turned green
        A           D             E         F#m
We were Bakersfield bound like so many gone before
        D               A          E               A
Just to cross our River Jordan and reach the other shore
D                 A         E               A
Crossed our River Jordan to reach the other shore
