Kern River Blues  Merle Haggard
 
D                                                    A7     D
Well I’m leaving town tomorrow getting’ my breakfast in the sky
         G                                                    D
Well I’m leavin’ in the early morning eat my breakfast in the sky
     A7                                      D
Be a donut on a paper drink my coffee on the fly
-----------------------------------------------------

D                                                    A7     D
Cause I’m flyin’ out on jet plane gonna leave this town behind
    G                                             D
I’m flyin’ out on jet plane gonna leave this town behind
          A7                                      D
They done moved the city limits out by the county line
------------------------------------------------------

D                                             A7    D
Put my head up to the window watched the city fade away
       G                                           D
Put my head close to the window watch Oildale fade away
        A7                                         D
Now the blues back in the 30’s just like the blues today
----------------------------------------------------------

D                                      A7       D
There used to be a river here runnin’ deep and wide
          G                                        D
Well they used to have Kern River runnin’ deep and wide
         A7                                      D
Then somebody stole the water another politician lied
----------------------------------------------------------

D                                                 A7      D
When you close down all the honky tonks the city died at night
         G                                               D
When you close down all the honky tonks the city died at night
        A7                                                  D
When it hurt somebody’s feelings well the wrong ain’t never right
-----------------------------------------------------------------

D                                             A7      D
Well I’m leavin’ town forever kiss an old boxcar goodbye
         G                                           D
Well I’m leavin’ town forever kiss an old boxcar goodbye
            A7                                         D
I dumped my blues out in the river before Kern River’s dry
