California Dream  
Recorded by Johnny Paycheck
Written by Aubrey Mayhew

It's been fifteen years now since the wine took hold of me
And the call of the wild it came so strong I just had to be free
Now I'm so tired of railroad tracks hobo camps and streams
D7 G
And I wanna go back to my California dreams

It's seems like only yesterday I had such big plans
California sunshine Hollywood and girls money in both hands
But sittin' here in the cold night air I hear that lonesome whistle scream
D7 G
I'll never get back to my California dreams

That ol' midnight train is a flyin' low headin' for New Orleans
It's so cold standin' here I know what that means
C G Em
Tomorrow I'll be in Dixie where the soft warm winds blow
A7 D7
Cause a hobo just don't care which way that ol' train goes

Cause one of these days I'll get to LA when I do boys watch my steam
D7 G
Oh I gotta get back to my California dreams
D7 G
Oh California here I come
