Lyrics

Astonishing women and their desperate men

Oakies forever, till the bitter end

As another round of pain comes around again

The back may break, but the will won’t bend

 

Been through the desert on the shakey wheels

Too sick to eat, too hungry to feel

Gonna make a last stand out in Bakersfield

Too proud to beg, too tired to steel

 

Chorus:

And if tomorrow comes in a long black coat

Down the holy spirit and the Jesus road

They won’t catch me cuz’ I ain’t goin’

Gonna find which way a good wind is blowin’

 

A little piece of land is all a man will need

To feed his family, keep ‘em off their knees

Those tractors won the fight back in Tennessee--

Nothing left but the fading memories

 

Chorus

 

I’m gonna keep my eyes straight on this road we’re driving on

This big valley it can’t hold out for long

There’ll be no more runnin’ until the gas is gone

You can’t stop a man who believes he belongs
