Well he told me
The highway called for him to hit it.
So that's what he did.
Now he regrets he ever did it now.

To California.
He said that's where he'd find his fortune.
And where it's warmer
The weather's warmer and the girls are scorching hot.

He quit his job down at the diner.
And then he loaded up his SUV.
Just like a modern 49er.
Except for the Schlager and the PCP.

To California.
He said he'd make it there come hell
Or come high water.
He isn't doing very well.
He made it to Atlantic City.
To try to double what he brought.
Lost it to a voodoo girl named Kitty.
Totaled the truck out in the parking lot.

So he decided
He was determined not to turn back. No way.
So guess what he did?
Well he snuck aboard an Amtrak Train.

To California.
He said that's where he'd find his fortune.
And where it's warmer.
The weather's warmer and the girls are scorching hot.

To California.
Just got a postcard in the mail.
"Just to inform ya.
I'm the LA County Jail. Right now."
