Streets Of Bakersfield
Recorded by Buck Owens
Written by Homer Joy

 G                            C 
I came here in looking for something 
   D7                       G 
I couldn't find anywhere else
                       C 
I don't want to see nobody 
 D7                           G 
Just want a chance to be myself

                               C 
I've done a thousand miles of thumbing
 D7                             G 
Yes I've worn blisters on my heels
                             C 
Trying to find me something better
 D7                        G 
On the streets of Bakersfield

                                 C 
You don't know me but you don't like me
 D7                            G 
You say you care less how I feel
                              C 
How many of you that sit and judge me
 D7                                 G 
Ever walked the streets of Bakersfield

                            C 
Spent some time in San Francisco
 D7                           G 
Spent a night there in the can
                                 C 
They threw this drunk man in my jail cell
 D7                                 G 
I took fifteen dollars from that man

                                C 
I left him my watch and my old house keys
 D7                                   G 
Don't like folks thinking that I'd steal
                              C 
Then I thanked him as he was sleeping
 D7                           G 
And I headed out for Bakersfield

Repeat #3
 
                              C 
How many of you that sit and judge me
 D7                                 G 
Ever walked the streets of Bakersfield
