and some hammer ons.
Verse 1
[C]I'm a dust bowl refug[C]ee,
[C]Just a dust bowl refu[G]gee,
[C]From that dust bowl [C]to the peach bowl,
[C]Now that peach f[G]uzz is a-killin' m[C]e.
Verse 2
[C]'Cross the mountains [C]to the sea,
[C]Come the wife and kid[G]s and me.
[C]It's a hot old dusty[C] highway
[C]For a dust b[G]owl refuge[C]e.
Verse 3
[C]Hard, it's always bee[C]n that way,
[C]Here today and on our[G] way
[C]Down that mountain, [C]'cross the desert,
[C]Just a dust [G]bowl refug[C]ee.
Verse 4
[C]We are ramblers, so t[C]hey say,
[C]We are only here toda[G]y,
[C]Then we travel with [C]the seasons,
[C]We're the dust b[G]owl refu[C]gees.
Verse 5
[C]From the south land a[C]nd the drought land,
[C]Come the wife and kid[G]s and me,
[C]And this old world i[C]s a hard world
[C]For a dust [G]bowl refu[C]gee.
Verse 6
[C]Yes, we ramble and we[C] roam
[C]And the highway that'[G]s our home,
[C]It's a never-ending [C]highway
[C]For a dust[G] bowl refu[C]gee.
Verse 7
[C]Yes, we wander and we[C] work
[C]In your crops and in [G]your fruit,
[C]Like the whirlwinds [C]on the desert
[C]That's the dust [G]bowl refu[C]gees.
Verse 8
[C]I'm a dust bowl refug[C]ee,
[C]I'm a dust bowl refug[G]ee,
[C]And I wonder will I [C]always
[C]Be a dust[G] bowl refu[C]gee?
