Dwight Yoakam - Streets Of Bakersfield
D = xx0232 E = 022100
A = x02220
[D]INT[E]RO[A] [D] [E] [A]
I came here looking for [D]something,
[E]I couldn't find anywhere [A]else.
Hey, I'm not trying to be no[D]body,
[E]Just want a chance to be my[A]self.
I've spent a thousand miles of [D]thumbin',
[E]Yes I've worn blisters on my [A]heels.
Tryin' to find me something [D]better,
[E]Here on the streets of Bakers[A]field.[D] [E] [A]
Hey, you don't know me but you don't [D]like me.
[E]Say you care less how I [A]feel.
But how many of you that sit and [D]judge me,
E A (D E A 1st time only)
Ever walked the streets of Bakersfield?
[D]INS[E]TRU[A]MEN[D]TAL[E] [A] [D] [E] [A]
Spent some time in San Fran[D]cisco,
[E]I spent a night there in the [A]can.
They threw this drunk man in my [D]jail cell,
[E]I took fifteen dollars from that [A]man.
Left him my watch and my old [D]house keys,
[E]Don't want folks thinkin' that I'd [A]steal.
Then I thanked him as I was [D]leaving,
[E]And I headed out for Bakers[A]field.[D] [E] [A]
[A]How many of you that sit and [D]judge me,
[E]Ever walked the streets of Bakers[A]field?[D] [E] [A]
