This song finds LaMontagne singing of a desire to get away from the city life as he sings of hitching a ride to the small Southern Californian town of Ojai. Like most of his tunes, it appears to be a work of fiction. "I still don't know what that song is about - some old hippie who made it to California and lost touch with old friends, or gets slighted or something," he told Billboard magazine. "I don't know. It's all a mystery to me. I'm still decoding these songs and figuring out where they came from."
