OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies chain across that ring
You roll away and circle left
Four ladies roll away, circle left
Allemande left and weave the ring
I've spent a thousand miles thumbin'
Swing that girl and promenade
Trying to find me something better
Here on the streets of Bakersfield


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads promenade halfway
Down the middle right & left thru
Square thru four hands
Dosado the corner girl
Swing thru, boys trade
Swing that corner, promenade
How many of you who sit and judge me
Ever walked the streets of Bakersfield


TAG

How many of you who sit and judge me
Ever walked the streets of Bakersfield

Streets Of Bakersfield

I came here looking for something
I couldn't find anywhere else
Hey, I'm not trying to be nobody
Just want a chance to be myself

I've done a thousand miles of thumbin'
I've worn holes in both my heels
Trying to find me something better
On the streets of Bakersfield

Chorus:

You don't know me, but you don't like me
You say you care less how I feel
But how many of you that sit and judge me
Have ever walked the streets of Bakersfield?

Spent some time in San Francisco
Spent a night there in the can
They threw this drunk man in my jail cell
Took fifteen dollars from that man
Left him my watch and my old house key
Don't want folks thinkin' that I'd steal
Then I thanked him as I was leaving, and
I headed for the streets of Bakersfield

Chorus:

You don't know me, but you don't like me
You say you care less how I feel
But how many of you that sit and judge me
Have ever walked the streets of Bakersfield?

You don't know me, but you don't like me
You say you care less how I feel
But how many of you that sit and judge me
Have ever walked the streets of Bakersfield?

How many of you that sit and judge me
Have ever walked the streets of Bakersfield?

Lyrics by Homer Joy.
Recorded by Buck Owens; Dwight Yoakam.
