Southern California - lyrics

playlist Playlist
You always said someday you'd go to live
In Southern California
And me I'd stay right here in Tennessee
You always talked about the better days
In Southern California
But if you'll stay in Tennessee
I promise there'll be better days with me
It's not that I don't love you
But I hear the call
From Southern California
There's something I can't find in Tennessee
Silver screens and limousines
They wait for me in Southern California
Though you've been so good to me
The time has come you'll have to set me free
Tomorrow when you leave
You'll take my heart
To Southern California
But just remember I'll be here
To keep your heart with me until you see
Well, it's been five years
I guess I've cried a million tears
Lookin' out the window of this little room
Right over that flashin' neon sign that says, "Bar"
It's almost midnight,
An time to go downstairs and go to work
I wonder how he's doin' in, Tennessee?

Well, here I sit by the window
Of this big old lonely mansion
Lookin' out over the Smokies
And on in everything I can see
Oh, I guess by now she's found
What she was lookin' for
And as I look at this old faded photograph
Of the girl that I still love
I wonder if she ever, thinks of me
But the weather's good
In Southern California...
