Going To California (from How The West Was Won)

Good evening!
This is going to be Going To California

Spend my days with a woman unkind
Smoked my stuff and drank all my wine
Made up my mind, make a new start
Going to California with an aching in my heart
Someone told me there's a girl out there
With love in her eyes and flowers in her hair, I didn't see too many this time

Took my chances on a big jet plane
Never let 'em tell you that they're all all the same
Hoh, the sea was red and the sky was grey
I wondered how tomorrow could ever follow today
The mountains and the canyons started to tremble and shake
The children of the sun began to awake, come on children

Seems that the wrath of the Gods
Got a punch on the nose and it started to flow
I think I might be sinking, ah ah
Throw me a line if I reach it in time
I'll see you up there where the path
Runs straight and hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh, oh-ooo-oh-ooo-oh

To find a queen without a king
They say she plays guitar and cries and she sings, Joni
Ride a white mare in the footsteps of dawn
Tryin' to find a woman who's never, never, never been born
Standing on a hill in a mountain of dreams
Telling myself it's not as hard, hard, hard as it seems, ooh-ooh-ooh, sure is hard, yeah

Oh, its haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaard

Ooooohhhhhhhhhhhh
