  • Raised up on Midwestern dreams
    Only a few shall get
    What everyone shall need
    I took my family's burden
    And I strapped it to my chest
    With 100 bucks and a kiss for luck
    I pointed my dreams west

    To California
    Come rescue me
    I am almost free

    Kept on drivin into the settin' sun
    Galaxies of angels welcome everyone
    I took my heart out of its box
    Attached it to my sleeve
    Well I will be here every night
    Because thats what I believe

    In California
    Come rescue me
    I am almost free

    I will find my love
    I will know my peace
    I will seek my truth
    I am almost free
    I am almost free
    I am almost free
    I am almost free
    I am almost free
    In California (I am almost free)
    In California (I am almost free)
    Rescue me (California)
    I am almost free Writer/s: MELISSA ETHERIDGE
