I Wish I Could See Bakersfield
Craig Morgan

I was (G) takin' a walk through a (C) small country (G) city
Just seem' what (D) there was to (G) see
I sat down to read a (C) historical (G) marker
When I felt someone (D) sit down by (G) me

He leaned on the tank that was (C) helping his (G) breathing
Said it's bad when your (D) body is (G) gone
I said this is sure a nice (C) town that you've (G) got here
He said yeah, but there's (D) no place like (G) home

I wish I could see Bakers(C)field
Where the (G) oil wells are pumpin'
The oranges are bloomin'
And the grapevine winds down from the (D) hill
When (G) I close my eyes I can (G7) touch the clear skies
At the (C) corner where I used to (G) live
Oh I wish I could (D) see Bakers(G)field

He said you (G) don't ever know where (C) life's gonna (G) lead you
When you go ramblin' (D) off down the (G) track
Sometimes I wish I'd never (C) left Cali(G)fornia
Then I couldn't (D) want to go (G) back

Spoken by Merle Haggard: 
He said "You know, I used to be a well-known country singer
Made my first record back in 1953
At one time Buck Owens was my lead guitar player
And ol' Hag once wrote a song about me"

I wish I could see Bakers(C)field
Where the (G) oil wells are pumpin'
The oranges are bloomin'
And the grapevine winds down from the (D) hill
When (G) I close my eyes I can (G7) touch the clear skies
At the (C) corner where I used to (G) live
Oh I wish I could (D) see Bakers(G)field
Steel Solo

Oh I wish I could (D) see Bakers(G)field
