Tom Rush – Do Re Mi lyrics

Lot of folks back east say leave home most every day
Hitting the hard old dusty trail to the California line
Well across the desert sands they rode
Getting out out of the old dust bowl
Think they're going to a sugar bowl here's what they find
For the police at the port of entry say
Your number 14, 000 for the day
Well if you ain't got the do re me boys
You ain't got the do re me
Well you better go back to beautiful Texas
Oklahoma, Kansas, Georgia, Tennessee
California's a garden of eden
It's paradise to live and see
But believe it or not you won't find it so hot
If you ain't got the do re me
Now if you want to buy a home or farm
That can't do nobody harm
Take your vacation by the mountains or the sea
But you better not swap your cow for car
Better stay right where you are
Better take this little tip from me
Cause I look thru the want ads every day
And the headlines on the paper always say
Well if you ain't got the do re me boys
You ain't got the do re me
Well you better go back to beautiful Texas
Oklahoma, Kansas, Georgia, Tennessee
California's a garden of eden
It's paradise for you and for me
But believe it or not you won't find it so hot
If you ain't got the do re me
