California's been good to me.
Hope it don't fall into the sea.
Sometimes you got to trust yourself.
It ain't like anywhere else.
It ain't like anywhere else.

It's time to roll,
I'm all done.
It's time we better hit the road
I got work later on,
It's time we better hit the road.

And California's been good to me.
I hope they don't fall into the sea.
Sometimes you got to save yourself.
It ain't like anywhere else.
No, it ain't like anywhere else.

Sundown, red skies,
Nobody's been around.
Sundown, blue eyes,
I kind of like this part of town.

And California has treated me good.
(California's been good to me)
I pray to God that the hills don't flood.
(Hope it don't fall into the sea)
Sometimes you got to trust yourself.
(Sometimes you got to trust yourself)
It ain't like anywhere else.
(Sometimes you got to save yourself)
It ain't like anywhere else.
(Said it ain't like anywhere else)
Ain't like anywhere else.
