CALIFORNIA LONELY

VERSE
Hitched out West to Sacramento
California sun should dry my tears
Nothing left for me in Carolina
Everything I loved left out of there
Met a nice young lady down in ‘Frisco
Took me to her place along the bay
Could’ve smelled that ocean breeze forever
At least much longer than she welcomed me to stay

CHORUS
This Carolina Boy—is California lonely
And still looking for the one—who wants to be my one and only

INSTRUMENTAL

VERSE
So I thumbed my way to San Diego
Thought a change of pace might lift my mood
She picked me up just south of Santa Barbara
Never dreamed a kiss could taste so good.

INSTRUMENTAL
KEY CHANGE

VERSE
But then she left me in September
Seems there was business left undone
Her little note said “See you in December”
Guess she forgot to mention—which one

CHORUS
This Carolina Boy—is California lonely
And still looking for the one—who wants to be my one and only

TAG
Always looking for the one—who wants to be my one and only
My one and only
