Kern River Blues
Written and recorded by Merle Haggard

C G7 C
Well I’m leaving town tomorrow getting’ my breakfast in the sky
F C
Well I’m leavin’ in the early morning eat my breakfast in the sky
G7 C
Be a donut on a paper drink my coffee on the fly

G7 C
Cause I’m flyin’ out on jet plane gonna leave this town behind
F C
I’m flyin’ out on jet plane gonna leave this town behind
G7 C
They done moved the city limits out by the county line

G7 C
Put my head up to the window watched the city fade away
F C
Put my head close to the window watch Oildale fade away
G7 C
Now the blues back in the 30’s just like the blues today

G7 C
There used to be a river here runnin’ deep and wide
F C
Well they used to have Kern River runnin’ deep and wide
G7 C
Then somebody stole the water another politician lied

G7 C
When you close down all the honky tonks the city died at night
F C
When you close down all the honky tonks the city died at night
G7 C
When it hurt somebody’s feelings well the wrong ain’t never right

G7 C
Well I’m leavin’ town forever kiss an old boxcar goodbye
F C
Well I’m leavin’ town forever kiss an old boxcar goodbye
G7 C
I dumped my blues out in the river before Kern River’s dry
