CALIFORNIA ON MY [C]MIND
I [D]BOARDED THAT GREYHOUND,
RODE IN INTO RALIEGH ON ACROSS CAROL[G]INE
[G]STOPPED IN CHARLOTTE TO BY PASS ROCKHILL
WE NEVER WAS A MINUTE [C]LATE
WE WERE [D]NINTY MILES OUT OF ATLANTA BY SUNDOWN
ROLLIN' OUT OF GEORGIA [G]STATE
WE [G]HAD MOTOR TROUBLE THAT TURNED INTO A STRUGGLE
HALFWAY ACROSS ALA[C]BAM
AND THAT [D]BOW BROKE DOWN
AND LEFT US STRANDED IN DOWNTOWN BIRMING[G]HAM
[G]RIGHT AWAY I BOUGHT A THROUGH TRAIN TICKET
GOT ACROSS MISSISSIPPI [C]CLEAN
AND I WAS [D]ON THAT MIDNIGHT FLYER OUT OF BIRMINGHAM
SMOKIN' INTO NEW ORLE[G]ANS
[G]SOMEBODY HELP ME GET OUT OF LOUISIANA
HELP ME GET TO HOUSTON [C]TOWN

1 & 2 & 3 & 4
V ^ V ^ ^ V
THERE ARE [D]PEOPLE THERE WHO CARE A LITTLE 'BOUT ME
AND WON'T PUT THE POOR BOY [G]DOWN
[G]GEORGIA BORN, THEY BOUGHT ME A SILK SUIT
AND PUT LUGGAGE IN MY [C]HAND
AND [D]WOKE UP HIGH OVER ALBUQUERQUE
ON A JET TO THE PROMISED [G]LAND
[G]WORKIN' ON A T-BONE ALA CARTEE
FLYIN' OVER TO THE GOLDEN [C]STATE
WHEN THE [D]PILOT TOLD US IN THIRTEEN MINUTES
HE WOULD SET US AT THE TERMINAL [G]GATE
[G]SWING LOW CHARIOT, COME DOWN EASY
TAXI TO THE TERMINAL [C]DOOR
[D]CUT YOUR ENGINES AND COOL YOUR WINGS
AND LET ME MAKE IT TO THE TELE[G]PHONE
[G]LOS ANGELES, GIVE ME NORFLOK VIRGINIA
TIDEWATER FOUR TEN O [C]NINE
TELL ALL THE [D]FOLKS BACK HOME
IT'S THE PROMISED LAND CALLIN'
AND THE POOR BOY IS ON THE [G]LINE
