If they told me "go west" I'd probably head the other way,

But I looked up and turned left when I saw snow instead of rain.
Well that's okay
I ain't stayin’.

I'm gonna see the gold along the river in the rocks.
I'm gonna be the soul upon that foggy mountain top.
I've gone away, gone away, on that California train.

I woke up, saw the sign, “100 miles, San Jose.”

I’m ticking off the time because my heart can hardly wait.
Well that's okay
I won't be late.

I'm gonna see the gold along the river in the rocks.
I'm gonna be the soul upon that foggy mountain top.
I've gone away, gone away, on that California train.

Those El Dorado tracks wind up and down the misty gray
O’er the mountain pass down to the valley in L.A.

Well that's okay
I’m on my way.

I'm gonna see the gold along the river in the rocks.
I'm gonna be the soul upon that foggy mountain top.
I've gone away, gone away, on that California train.

I've gone away, gone away, on that California train.
