Album: California Kid
6. California Kid

I don’t just live here it’s where I’m from ya know
City of the angels got the rest of you in tow
And someone stole the night from us a long long time ago
‘Cause when the day is over man, the stars don’t even show

And there’s a thousand kids on the boulevard of fame
Casting lines dong time while trying on new names
Each one has a story but no one wants to hear
“Cause someone’s getting picked to launch a new career

California dreamer, welcome to California kid
Way out in the west your folks will wonder how you’ll live
So you send them all a post card of the famous wax museum
And you’ll tell ‘em all it’s ok because you’ve got a gift to give
‘Cause you’re the California kid

Hungry and dirty like a settler through the dust
A glimmer in the eye that says Hollywood or bust
El Dorado lies say that the streets are paved with gold
And everybody dies so young ‘cause outlaws can’t grow old
Like the wild wild west this is gunslinger land
Those killer thieves cut you down where you stand
But your heart is a dove over dessert and flame winging back home against any pain

One day when you have made it big you’re gonna buy a house
You say, right there upon the beach with all your friends just hanging out
But graveyard waiting tables makes you wonder and you doubt
And some say while you’re able you ought to leave this town

And I’ll still be ‘round writing songs that no hears
While the ocean rolls in another night of salty tears
I wish we’d have a little shaker so that some of you would leave
But then again I know this place is where you come to be a

California dreamer, come on now California kid
And someday when you leave you may not go the way you came
No it doesn’t really matter if you grabbed the big brass ring
‘Cause I will still remember you for all the things you did
‘Cause I’m the California kid
