D                          G

Lot of folks back east say leave home most every day
A                                                   D
Hitting the hard  old dusty trail to the California line

Well across the desert sands they rode
G
Getting out out of the  old dust bowl
A                                                    D
Think they're going to a sugar bowl here's what they find
        A
For the police at the port of entry say
                           A7
Your number 14,000 for the day
            D
Well if you ain't got the do re me boys
                         A
You ain't got the do re me

Well you better go back to beautiful Texas
                                 D
Oklahoma, Kansas, Georgia, Tennessee

California's a garden of eden
     D7                    G
It's paradise  to live and see
                                D
But believe it or not you won't find it so hot
                     A     D     G   A  D
If you ain't got the do re me
D
Now if you want to  buy a home or farm
G
That can't  do nobody harm
A                                           D
Take your vacation by the mountains or the sea

But you better not swap your cow for  car
G
Better stay  right where you are
A                                D
Better take this little tip from me
A                                             
Cause I look thru the want ads every day
                                   
And the headlines on the paper always say
            D
Well if you ain't got the do re me boys
                        A
You ain't got the do re me

Well you better go back to beautiful Texas

California's a garden of eden
                  D7          G 
It's paradise for you and for me
                                D
But believe it or not you won't find it so hot

Performer: Nanci Griffith
Album: Other Voices, Other Rooms

[G] Well thousands of folks back east, they say,
[C] Are leavin’ home most every day,
[D7] Beatin’ the hot old dusty way to the [G] California line.
‘Cross the desert sands they roll,
[C] Getting out of that old dust bowl.
They [D7] think they’re going to a sugar bowl,
But [G] here is what they find.
Now the [D7] police at the port of entry say,
“Hey you’re number fourteen thousand for today.”

Chorus:
Oh if you [G] ain’t got that do re mi boy,
Well if you ain’t got the do re [D7] mi,
Why you better go back to beautiful Texas,
Oklahoma, Georgia, Kansas, Tennes[G]see.
California is a Garden of Eden,
It’s a paradise to live in or [C] see.
But be[G]lieve it or [D7] not, [G] you won’t [C] find it so [G] hot,
If you ain’t got the [C] do [D7] re [G] mi.

If you want to buy you a home or farm,
That can’t do nobody harm,
Or take your vacation by the mountains or the sea.
Don’t swap your old cow for a car,
You’d better stay right where you are,
You’d better take this little tip from me.
‘Cause I look through the want ads every day,
And the headlines in the papers always say . . .

Chorus

Yeah be[G]lieve it or [D7] not, [G] you won’t [C] find it so [G] hot,
If you ain’t got the [C] do [D7] re [G] mi.
