With Colorado in my rearview mirror, headed out to Californ I A.

I’ve been all around this big ole land, criss crossin the USA.

Gotta find me a place in the country where I can take my rest.

Of all the places I have found, California is the best.


Gotta find me a piece of land where I can settle down.

It don’t gotta be a whole square mile, just a little piece of ground.

Don’t need a telephone or electricity.

All I need is a little place to raise a family.


Gonna live the sweet life, yeah I’m gonna grow my own.
