California – Unreleased Track

Unreleased for many years, finally released as a track on a soundtrack for a TV show, NCIS.

Was rewritten as Outlaw Blues, which was released on Bringing It All Back Home).  The last stanza of California was used in Outlaw Blues.

.Lyrics to California below.

I’m goin’ down south,
‘Neath the borderline.
I’m goin’ down south,
‘Neath the borderline.
Some fat momma
Kissed my mouth one time.

Well, I needed it this morning
Without a shadow of doubt.
My suitcase is packed,
My clothes are hangin’ out.

San Francisco’s fine,
You sure get lots of sun.
San Francisco is fine.
You sure get lots of sun.
But I’m used to four seasons,
California’s got but one.

Well, I got my dark sunglasses,
I got for good luck my black tooth.
I got my dark sunglasses,
And for good luck I got my black tooth.
Don’t ask me nothin’ about nothin’,
I just might tell you the truth.
