Lyrics
OH CALIFORNIA
Written by: Howard Delnick
B-A-F#-E

Verse:
THE FLOWERS HAVE ALL WILTED AND DIED, A LONG TIME AGO
THERE'S NOTHING LEFT OF THE TEARS THAT I CRIED,
THE ONES NOBODY KNOWS
SHE TOOK A PLANE TO CALIFORNIA, OFF TO CHASE A DREAM
OH! CALIFORNIA, LOOK WHAT YOU'VE TAKEN FROM ME

Chorus:
OH! CALIFORNIA, LOOK WHAT YOU'VE TAKEN FROM ME
YOUR RAISINS AND WINE, CAN'T PAY FOR THE CRIME
YOU'RE COMMITTIN' YOU SEE
IF THE LAND OF SUN, RICHES AND FUN
ARE WHAT YOU WANT TO BE
WELL, OKAY, CALIFORNIA, JUST SEND MY SUNSHINE TO ME

Verse:
SHE BELIEVES ALL THE LINES ABOUT STARDOM AND FAME
STREETS COVERED WITH GOLD
SHE DON'T REALIZE THE PURSUIT OF THAT DREAM,
CAN MAKE A BODY GROW COLD
TO SEE HER NAME UP IN LIGHTS, SURE WOULD MAKE HER DAY
OH! CALIFORNIA, PLEASE DON'T MAKE HER STAY

Chorus:
