Oh California

lyrics

Last time I saw you you were sitting on the deck
of a surf shack on a Texas beach
With sun in your eyes and sand on your feet
You said I should get back to California
Oh California

I hear that they are closing down the flights
and I have people waiting for me there
I said I really don’t care
you should stay a while
Instead of going back to California
Oh California

I always knew that you were meant to go
I just did not expect it so soon
With so many shows left to play
before going back to California
Oh California
Oh California
Oh California

You know I told you it’s not my favorite state
Too much traffic and too much pace
You said you too had grown tired of the place
and wanted to move away from California
Oh California

But honey you were L.A. born and raised
you always knew that you would die there someday
so chances were you would always stay
and never leave California
Oh California
Oh California
Oh California

And if you go who knows when you’ll be back
Don’t you think this is a nice little shack
To hang out until things settle down
Instead of going back to that mean old town
in California
Oh California
Oh California
Oh California

Last time I saw you you were sitting on the deck
of a surf shack on a Texas beach
With sun in your eyes and sand on your feet
I wish you hadn’t gone back to California
Oh California
Oh California
Oh California
