From 2001, this is one of those slow sad piano songs with strings. Ice tea in my hair Drugs fall out of diaper bags As midwesterners stare I am California Long walks on the 5 Truck stops and the symphony And I'll be here when I die I heart California... "I'm just tryin' to make a livin' I'm an old man at thirty-nine With two kids and an ex-wife Who moved up to Riverside I'm workin' down on the border Drivin' back roads every night Mountains east of El Cajon North of the Tecate line.
and my head is turning, turning, turning round and round...Allie's stomach's churning, churning, like a storm today...Apparently, recording a California song is a requirement for musicians, even if it's only to show that they hate California stereotypes or the Entertainment Industry, which is still dominated by Hollywood, but has become increasingly fragmented and spread out.Musicians such as Local H and Brooke White have even written songs about California Songs, while other musicians write about how much they hate the state.It's all good, and they're all here on the list when I discover them. Let me know if there is something not here that should be.
The lyrics come from the Internet, and we all know how unreliable it can be.Out in California she's takin' off her tight red skirt"After the death of a member of his backing band, The Guilty Men, Alvin assembled a new band composed of women called The Guilty Women, whose voices add a nice dimension to his harmonies. Yeah, well where you gonna run to when the whole wide world burns down? This is from their 1972 album "Homecoming." "Heaven may be an answer If you're lookin' for eden in the sky On your waters i see a strange reflection Rumor has it i'll see you when i die Everyone i meet is from california There's dancin' in the streets in california In california you watch the shadow dancer Floating gently, gently on the sea In california you're such a strange romancer Come and see me when the world has set you free Everyone i meet is from california There's dancin' in the streets in california Everyone i meet is from california There's dancin' in the streets in california."From their 1972 album "Homecoming." An upbeat soft rock classic with a catchy acoustic guitar riff from the band who have been to the desert on a horse with no name.This song needs no explanation to those of us who have watched hillsides and homes go up in flames in the summer and fall and mudslides cover what remains the next winter... For 30 years I wondered how those lizards got up in the air, but thanks to the imaginatiion-killing-internet I now know that they're only supposed to be cloud formations.Also, be aware that some of these songs may contain explicit lyrics.I have incuded links to the songs on You Tube if I could find them.They killed off the Indians, they shot all the grizzly bears Out in California, they shot all the grizzly bears She just stands by the window, combing out her long black hair If a man keeps runnin', he'll run right into himself It a man keeps movin', he'll run into himself Out in California she's lyin down with somebody else Out in California... No rain for four years, and the hills are dry and brown. California's burning, no one knows when this will end.
