about

written and recorded a long time ago, in an LA far, far away

lyrics

laying with her in the hot carolina summer
trying to fight the wandering feeling that i'm going under
we've got dust for bones i can't stand this dead country
i'm heading out of here and there's nothing going to rebut me
i've signed my name in the wind

well i heard they got gold out west i'm gonna go and find it
in that land all you need is courage and the strength to mine it
so sit close tonight let's make it something to remember
when the morning comes i'm gonna leave this town forever
they'll talk about me when i'm gone

i'm heading out to california way
i'm heading out to california today
heading out to california don't miss me cause i won't mourn you
heading out to california way

we got stuck in the mud in the swamps of louisiana
nothing to eat and we nearly lost a man there
the gators are biting i feel them right at my feet
i can't seem to lose them even in my dreams
i'm dying just to see that golden coast

i'm heading out to california way
i'm heading out to california today
heading out to california don't miss me cause i won't mourn you
heading out to california way

i thought of you in the mountains of colorado
as we rode far above the timber line
the air is thin up here and it's so goddamn cold
if i don't lose my body i'm sure to lose my soul
i hope they send me back to you

i'm heading out to california way
i'm heading out to california today
heading out to california don't miss me cause i might just mourn you
heading out to california way

we made it out here but goddamn if the gold ain't run up
so i took all i own and poured it in a cup
but this whisky warms the blood and they both still flow
i think i'll saddle up and head down to mexico
ojala que vaya con dios

i'm heading out of california way
i'm heading out of california today
heading out of california do you miss me cause i know mourn you
heading out of california way
