       C
With a backpack full of yesterdays
     Bb
On a freeway full of smoke and haze
          C                                  Dm
Where the power lines and fault lines double cross
  C
I left our yellow porch light on
   Bb
No one will notice no oneís home
    C                                Dm
And no one else will notice what was lost


I lost my home when the deal went bust
To the so-called security and trust
I planned my life the way they said I should
I sent my wife and kids ahead
Iím right behind you, so I said
Iíll be there when I get there if thatís good


Chorus:
        F           G              C 
Now Iím leaving California for the dust bowl
     F                    G               C
They took it all, thereís nowhere else to go
    F                      C       C/B    Am
The pastures of plenty are burning by the sea
F          Dm           G 
Iím just a homeland refugee

3
Thereís a plastic sack by a barbwire fence
A burned out beer truck full of dents
A dried up stock pond by an old canal
Between the towns the desert sands
Filling up with empty cans
Container trains, casinos and canals


Chorus


My Grandpa used to tell about
The way the bankers drove them out
In the wind and the dust in the crash of Ď29
They crossed the desert headed west
They swore that it was for the best
They reassured the ones they left behind

Thereís some refugees from Mexico
Behind an abandoned Texaco
We nod and smile, itís clear weíre all the same
For everything this world is worth
Weíre all just migrants on this earth
Returning to the dust from where we came 

Chorus
