Buck Ownes', "California Okie"
The Lyrics:
I'm a first-generation, genuine California Okie,
Born in Barstow, raised in Bakersfield.
My mom and pop were orphans of the Oklahoma dust bowl.
I was born in the back of a rusty Oldsmobile.
Refers to the U.S. state of California and the cities of Barstow and Bakersfield therein. Then refers to the U.S. state of Oklahoma.
