Boarded up a greyhound bus she did
For Californio
To find a new life, new life, new life, new life

Weren’t no visions of saving her soul
Just running away from the old dustbowl
To a new life, new life, new life, new life, new life

Fell in love with a Cherokee boy
He was a good man but daddy said no
You won’t be his wife, his wife, his wife, his wife
No new life

All of life was so hard, fingers worked to the bone
No room for dreaming, got to find a home

Sharecropping since the day she was born
Til a man said come to California baby
Get a new life, new life, new life, new life

Left her with their babies, out on the town
His other women and liquor bringing her down
Is this my new life, new life? New life, new life, new life

All of life was so hard, fingers worked to the bone
No room for dreaming, got to find a home

Boarded up a greyhound bus she did
For Californio
To find a new life, new life, new life, new life
