California Blues

How long how long : how long my train been gone
Been gone long enough : to take you to your good gal home

Tell my wild women in California : where I so long to be
Wild women and whiskey : can make a fool out of me

They can lead me like a little airedale : that's only
seven weeks old
They can lead me to the water : shake my head no no no

The longest train I ever rode : was seventy?nine coaches
But if the man had a?seed me : around the mountain I'd
have been gone

I was on my way to California : where I so long to be
Honey I'm from Missouri : you have to side me
