D                G  
Tulare dust in a farm boy?s nose  
A                  D   
Wonderin where the freight train goes 
D                         G   
Standin in a field by the railroad tracks  
E7                     A      
Cursin the strap on my cotton sack 
      D                    G  
I can see mom and dad with shoulders low 
A                        D  
Both of them pickin on a double row 
     D                   G 
They do it for a livin because they must 
       A                      D 
That?s life like it is on the Tulare dust 
The California sun was something new 
That winter we arrived in 42 
          D                     G 
And I can still remember how my Daddy cussed 
    A                       D 
The tumbleweeds here in the Tulare dust 
The valley fever was a common fate 
To the farm workers here in the golden state 
      D                      G  
And I miss Oklahoma but I?ll stay if I must 
    A                        D     
And help make a livin in the Tulare dust 
Repeat 1st verse
