MARJO WILSON: Music

CALIFORNIA

(Marjo Wilson)
August 21, 2004

off Blackberry Wine cd



Golden Hills, Farming Land,
get your fill at the taco stand
deep blue sea and the rivers run
cruising down the 101
surfer boys on PCH, truckers drive the interstate
mountain valley, desert sand,
California, Promise Land...
pretty girl on a billboard sign
smiling and lookin fine
flat bed Ford and a coupe de vill
Palm tree homestead on a hill
santa ann warm wind blows
through the lemon and advocado groves
cowboy walks across a field
with a cowdog nippin at his heels...

CALIFORNIA,CALIFORNIA...

Mini malls and cadillacs,
Cal trans laying down new tracks
From the cloverleaf to Tahoe Lake
Venice Beach to the Golden Gate
Blue Sierra Thunderhead
lay back down on a pine wood bed
taste the sugar on the vine
sippin Mendocino Wine
sailboat out on the bay
candlestick on a sunny day
trailerparks and the double wide
politics and the new gay pride
save our redwoods save our trees
save our rivers save our seas
save our towns save our missions
save our hearts and dreams and visions...

chorus:
CALIFORNIA, that's the place I love
CALIFORNIA, Love that golden sun
CALIFORNIA that's where i love to run
won't you come along, with me, to the sea...
RIGHT NOW

cows are eating up the hay
winding down another day
and the sunsets always best down in L.A.
you know what I mean, yeah- you know what I mean!

chorus:
CALIFORNIA, that's the place I love
CALIFORNIA, Love that golden sun
CALIFORNIA that's where i love to run
won't you come along, with me, to the sea...
RIGHT NOW
california, california, claifornia, california...
