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

C                                                    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

C                                             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

C                                      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

C                                                 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

C                                             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
