California Blues
Jimmy Rogers - as sung by Gene Autry

I'm a-goin' to California where they sleep out ev'ry night (2)
I'm a-leavin' you, mama, cause I know you don't treat me right


Listen to me (to your daddy), mama, sing you this lonesome song (2)
You've got me worried now but I won't be worried long


Let me tell you something, mama (good gal), that you don't know (2)
I'm a do right pappa, and got a home ev'rywhere I go


I got the Caifornia blues, and I'm sure gonna leave you here (gal) (2)
I may right that...   I ain't got no railroad fare


Lord, Lord, Lord, yes, go South

Now (Lord)  I can't understand what makes me treat me like you do (do, do) (2)
But if you don't want me, mama, it's the same, I don't want you
