California

Album: Damn Country Music (2015)
  • It's a three-day drive if she drives all night
    Says she's leavin' at the crack of dawn
    Well, she might still be lyin' here with me
    But in her heart she's already gone
    Already packed-up, the Altima's gassed-up
    She's done put the map up there on the dash
    And I'm all tore-up just tryin' to man-up
    Dammin' these tears up but can't hold 'em back

    'Cause she's in love with California
    And that West-Coast sunshine dream
    These ain't no Holly Woods
    And these hills ain't Beverly
    Ain't no beaches on these backroads
    No sunset on the boulevard
    She's in love with California
    And breakin' my heart

    Got a waitress job waitin' in an Ihop
    Throw a rock and hit Universal City
    Got a glamour shot in her hip pocket
    Hopin' somebody'll think she's pretty
    By this time tomorrow she'll hit Colorado
    I'll be drownin' my sorrow in a bottle of Beam
    Before she hits Flagstaff, maybe she'll backtrack
    But I wouldn't bet that if I was me

    'Cause she's in love with California
    And that West-Coast sunshine dream
    These ain't no Holly Woods
    And these hills ain't Beverly
    Ain't no beaches on these backroads
    No sunset on the boulevard
    She's in love with California
    And breakin' my heart

    She was all mine
    But now it's go-time

    'Cause she's in love with California (California)
    And that West-Coast sunshine dream (California)
    These ain't no Holly Woods
    And these hills ain't Beverly
    There ain't no beaches on these backroads
    No sunset on the boulevard
    She's in love with California
    And breakin' my heart
    She's in love with California
    And breakin' my heart

    Oh, she's breakin' my heart Writer/s: John Rich, Rodney Clawson, Vicky McGhee
