California Cotton Fields Recorded by Seldom Scene Written by Dallas Frazier and Earl Montgomery
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 My daddy plowed the ground F C And prayed that someday he might leave G D7 G This rundown mortgaged Oklahoma farm
D7 C G And then one day I heard my daddy saying to my momma A7 D7 That he had finally saved enough to go G D7 F Well California was his dream of paradise C G D7 G For he had seen pictures in a magazine that told him so
C D7 California cotton fields C D7 C G When labor camps were filled with worried men with broken dreams C D7 California cotton fields C D7 G As close to wealth as daddy ever came
D7 F C Almost everything we had was sold or left behind G D7 From my daddy's plow to the fruit that momma canned G D7 Yes some folks came to say farewell F C And see what all we had to sell G D7 G Some just came to shake my daddy's hand
D7 C G Yeah the Model A was loaded down and California bound A7 D7 But the change it looked just four 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
