CaliforniaSitting in a park in paris, france

Reading the news and it sure looks bad

They won’t give peace a chance

That was just a dream some of us had

Still a lot of lands to see

But I wouldn’t want to stay here

It’s too old and cold and settled in it’s ways here

Oh, but california

California I’m coming home

I’m going to see the folks I dig

I’ll even kiss a sunset pig

California I’m coming home

I met a redneck on a grecian isle

Who did the goat dance very well

He gave me back my smile

But he kept my camera to sell

Oh the rogue, the red red rogue

He cooked good omelettes and stews

And I might have stayed on with him there

But my heart cried out for you, california

Oh california I’m coming home

Oh make me feel good rock’n roll band

I’m your biggest fan

California, I’m coming home

Chorus:

Oh it gets so lonely

When you’re walking

And the streets are full of strangers

All the news of home you read

Just gives you the blues

Just gives you the blues

So I bought me a ticket

I caught a plane to spain

Went to a party down a red dirt road

There were lots of pretty people there

Reading rolling stone, reading vogue

They said, "how long can you hang around? "

I said "a week, maybe two,

Just until my skin turns brown

Then I’m going home to california"

California I’m coming home

Oh will you take me as I am

Strung out on another man

California I’m coming home

Chorus:

Oh it gets so lonely

When you’re walking

And the streets are full of strangers

All the news of home you read

More about the war

And the bloody changes

Oh will you take me as l am?

Will you take me as l am?

Will you?

California

Our conversation was short and sweet

It nearly swept me off-a my feet.

And I'm back in the rain, oh, oh,

And you are on dry land.

You made it there somehow

You're a big girl now.

Bird on the horizon, sittin' on a fence,

He's singin' his song for me at his own expense.

And I'm just like that bird, oh, oh,

Singin' just for you.

I hope that you can hear,

Hear me singin' through these tears.

Time is a jet plane, it moves too fast

Oh, but what a shame if all we've shared can't last.

I can change, I swear, oh, oh,

See what you can do.

I can make it through,

You can make it too.

Love is so simple, to quote a phrase,

You've known it all the time, I'm learnin' it these days.

Oh, I know where I can find you, oh, oh,

In somebody's room.

It's a price I have to pay

You're a big girl all the way.

A change in the weather is known to be extreme

But what's the sense of changing horses in midstream?

I'm going out of my mind, oh, oh,

With a pain that stops and starts

Like a corkscrew to my heart

Ever since we've been apart.
