To hell with this life it's killing me softly
I'm catching a ride on an N-train
Just like James Dean, you came to me in movies
A ghost of destruction with nothing to gain

I take back everything I said to you
About those L.A. stories
I take back everything I said to you
About this California glory
So fare well
I hope you fare well
So, goodbye jacknife
See ya later jacknife

I came to L.A. with a chip on my shoulder
An new suitcase and a jaded friend
But thats okay 'cause I'm a little older
So lets get drunk until the bitter end

I take back everything I said to you
About those L.A. stories
I take back everything I said to you
About this California glory
So fare well
I hope you fare well
Goodbye jacknife
I'll see ya later jacknife.

Sunset Boulevard never felt so empty
They kicked us out of their bar and locked the door
The stories of Hollywood would always contempt me
But let me fade away until there's nothing more

I take back everything I said to you
About those L.A. stories
And I, I take back everything I said to you
About this California glory
So fare well
I hope you fare well
I said fare well
Oh, I hope you fare well
I said goodbye jacknife
I'll see ya later jacknife
So, goodbye jacknife
I'll see ya later jackfife
