Spend my days with a woman unkind
Smoked my stuff and drank all my wine
Made up my mind to make a new start
Goin' to California with an achin' in my heart
Someone told me there's a girl out there
With love in her eyes and flowers in her hair

Took my chances on a big jet plane
Never let 'em tell ya that we're aw-ooh-all the same
Oh the sea was red and the sky was grey
I wonder how tomorrow could ever follow today hey
Mountains and the canyons start to tremble and shake
The children of the sun begin to awake
Watch out

It seems that the wrath of the gods got a punch on the nose
And it's startin' to flow, I think I might be sinkin'
Throw me a line, if I reach it in time
Meet you up there where the path runs straight and high

Find a queen without a king
They say she plays guitar and cries and sings
Ride a white mare in the footsteps of dawn
Tryin' to find a woman who's never never never been born
Standin' on a hill in the mountain of dreams
Tellin' myself it's not as hard hard hard as it seems
Mm-mm, now

Ah-ah ah-ah
Ah-ah ah-ah
Ah-ah ah-ah
Ah-ah ahh
