Album: Adios (2017)
Play Video
  • Ran away from home when I was seventeen
    To be with you on the California coast
    Drinking margaritas all night in the old cantina
    Out on the California coast

    Don't think that I'm ungrateful
    And don't look so morose
    Adiós, adiós

    We never really made it baby
    But we came pretty close
    Adiós, adiós

    Going up north where the hills are winter green
    I got to leave you on the California coast
    Going where the water's clear and the air is cleaner
    Than the California Coast

    Our dreams of endless summers
    They were just too grandiose
    Adiós, adiós

    And I'll miss the blood red sunset
    But I'll miss you the most
    Adiós, adiós
    Adiós, adiós
    Adiós, adiós Writer/s: JIMMY WEBB
