Streets Of Bakersfield

Song Author Homer Joy Performer: Buck Owens Submitted by: Anonymous

[G]I came here in looking for [C]something
I [D7]couldn't find anywhere [G]else
I don't want to see no[C]body
[D7]Just want a chance to be my[G]self

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

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

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

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

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

How many of you that sit and [C]judge me
[D7]Ever walked the streets of Bakers[G]field


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

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

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

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

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

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

How many of you that sit and judge me
Ever walked the streets of Bakersfield
