Woody Guthrie - Talkin' Dust Bowl Blues Lyrics

  • Talking Dust Bowl Blues
  • (Woody Guthrie)
  • Back in nineteen twenty seven
  • I had a little farm and I called it heaven
  • Prices up and the rain come down
  • I hauled my crops all into town
  • Got the money...bought clothes and groceries...
  • Fed the kids..and raised a big family
  • But the rain quit and the wind got high
  • Black old dust storm filled the sky
  • I traded my farm for a Ford machine
  • Poured it full of this gas-i-line
  • And started...rocking and a-rolling
  • Deserts and mountains...to California
  • Way up yonder on a mountain road
  • Hot motor and a heavy load
  • Going purty fast, wasn't even stopping
  • Bouncing up and down like popcorn a-popping
  • Had a breakdown..kind of a nervous bustdown
  • Mechanic feller there charged me five bucks
  • And said it was En-gine trouble
  • Way up yonder on a mountain curve
  • Way up yonder in a piney wood
  • I gave that rolling Ford a shove
  • Gonna coast just fars as I could
  • Commence a rolling..picking up speed
  • Come a hairpin turn..and I didn't make it
  • Man alive, I'm a telling you
  • The fiddles and guitars really flew
  • That Ford took off like a flying squirrel
  • Flew halfway around the world
  • Scattered wives and children
  • All over the side of that mountain
  • Got to California so dad-gum broke
  • So dad-gum hungry I thought I'd choke
  • I bummed up a spud or two
  • Wife fixed up some tater stew
  • We poured the kids full of it
  • Looked like a tribe of thy-mometers
  • arunning around
  • Lord, man, I swear to you
  • That was surely mighty thin stew
  • So damn thin I really mean
  • You could read a magizine
  • Right through it..look at the pictures too
  • Purty whiskey bottles..***** women
  • Always have thought, always figured
  • If that damn stew had been a little thinner
  • Some of these here politicians
  • Could of seen through it
