G                  D7               F          C
My drifting memory goes back to the spring of '43

     G                             D7
When I was just a child in momma's arms

   G                D7                  F                C
My daddy plowed the ground and promised someday we would leave

     G                  D7       G
This run-down mortgaged Oklahoma farm

 
D7                              C            G
Then one night I heard my daddy saying to my momma

A7                                D7
That he'd finally saved enough to go

G          D7              F            C
California was his dream a paradise for he had seen

G           D7             G
Pictures in magazines that told him so

 
G   C      D7
California Cottonfields

      C                D7                C               G
Where labor camps were filled with weary men with broken dreams

    C      D7
California Cottonfields

   C                  D7         G
As close to wealth as daddy ever came

 
                     D7              F      C
Nearly everything we had was sold or left behind

     G                                      D7
From my daddy's plow to the soup that momma canned

     G                 D7                   F             C
Some folks came to say farewell or see what all we had to sell

     G                  D7         G
Some just came to shake my daddy's hand

 
D7                               C          G
That model A was loaded down and California bound

A7                               D7
A change of luck was just 4 days away

G                   D7              F            C
But the only change that I remember seeing in my daddy

G                      D7               G
Was when his dark hair turned to silver gray

 
D7                              C            G
Then one night I heard my daddy saying to my momma

A7                                D7
That he'd finally saved enough to go

G          D7              F            C
California was his dream a paradise for he had seen

G           D7             G
Pictures in magazines that told him so
