In California

 

Was born back east, was rectified in peace

By way off old D.C. and Onondoga

But I struck out, descended into doubt 

I'm rolling on highway 40 to California

 

Was weaned in state, made camp in Silverlake

The bullets, well they're still flying and they warned ya

Now I'm alone, a mattress and a phone

A traveler aground in California

 

The pioneers could not abide

They'd find a field then colonize

Try to defend, then grow, then slide, in green

It's not what I've seen

 

I'll take my bride, I'll take her for a ride

We'll walk among the pines that Spain had loaned ya

Breathe in the sea, breathe opportunity

Anxiety's unsleeved in California

 

HARMONICA SOLO

 

Pioneers could not abide

They'd find a field then colonize

Try to defend, then grow, then slide, in green

It's not what I've seen

 

Was born back east, in Capitol D.C.

Was sanctified, humidity had warmed up

I'll take no rest, keep hoping for the best

An outpost and some wine in California

A touch of the divine in California

Ignore the warning signs in California
