"Dear Okie" lyrics

Dear Okie

Dear okie
If you see arkie
Tell him tex has got a job for him
Out in Californy
Picking up prunes
Squeezing oil out of olives

Dear okie
If you see arkie
Tell him tex has got a job for him
Out in Californy
Raking up gold
Playing fiddle in the Follies

Now, he'll be lucky
If he finds a place to live
But there's orange juice fountains flowing
For those kids of his

So, dear okie
If you see arkie
Tell him tex has got a job for him
Out in Californy
Digging oil wells
All he needs is a shovel

Dear okie
If you see arkie
Tell him tex has got a job for him
Out in Californy
Selling used cars
Just a waiting for the suckers

Dear okie
If you see arkie
Tell him tex has got a job for him
Out in Californy
Handing out checks
As a welfare worker

If he takes the freeway
To the grocery store
He'll make it fine
If he starts out the day before

Dear okie
If you see arkie
Tell him tex has got a job for him
Out in Californy
Picking up prunes
Squeezing oil out of olives

Dear okie
Dear okie
