From New Lost City Ramblers Vol.2 CD (Smithsonian Folkways) Credited to Doye O'Dell

Dear Okie, If you see Arkie, tell 'im Tex got a job for him out in Californie. Pickin' up prunes, squeezin' oil out of olives.
Dear Okie, If you see Arkie, tell 'im Tex got a job for him out in Californie, Rakin' up gold, playin' fiddle in the follies.
(Chorus) Now, he'll be lucky if he finds a place to live, but there's orange juice fountains flowin' for those kids of his.
Dear Okie, If you see Arkie, tell 'im Tex got a job for him out in Californie, Diggin' oil wells, all he needs is a shovel.
