lyrics

QUEEN OF CALIFORNIA

(WORDS & MUSIC BY WILL GEORGE)

SHE CAME DOWN FROM THE BLUE HILLS OF KENTUCKY
SHE WAS PLAYIN' IN A ROCK N ROLL SHOW
SHE STAYED BEHIND BECAUSE SHE LIKED THE WEATHER
IT NEVER RAINS IN CALIFORNIA DON'T YOU KNOW

SHE'S LIVIN' IN A HOUSE IN LAUREL CANYON
DEEP IN THE HEART OF HOLLYWOOD
SHE GOES TO ART SCHOOL, SHE'S MAKIN' MOVIES
SHE'S GONNA TAKE THE WORLD BY STORM

SHE'S THE QUEEN OF CALIFORNIA
FROM THE SHORES OF SAN FRANCISCO BAY
TO THE DESERT OUT IN SAN DIEGO
SHE'S THE QUEEN OF CALIFORN-I-A

SHE LEARNED TO SURF ON THE BEACH AT VENICE
EVERY MORNING UP AT 6AM
STRUMS HER GUITAR AND SINGS BOB DYLAN
LONG BLONDE HAIR BLOWIN' IN THE WIND
DRIVES UP THE COAST WITH THE TOP DOWN
CRUISIN' HIGHWAY 101

SHE'S THE QUEEN OF CALIFORNIA
FROM THE BEACHES OUT IN WEST L.A.
TO THE VINEYARDS UP IN MENDOCINO
SHE'S THE QUEEN OF CALIFORN-I-A

HEADS TURN WHEN SHE WALKS BY
WITH A BEAUTY TO MYSTIFY
SHE'LL CAST A SPELL OVER YOU
EVERYTIME SHE WALKS IN THE ROOM

SHE'S THE QUEEN OF CALIFORNIA
FROM THE ROCKY CLIFFS OF MONTEREY
TO THE FARMLANDS DOWN AROUND SALINAS
SHE'S THE QUEEN OF CALIFORN-I-A

SHE'S THE QUEEN OF CALIFORNIA
SHE'S THE QUEEN OF SAN JOSE
SHE'S THE QUEEN OF PASADENA
SHE'S THE QUEEN OF CALIFORN-I-A
SHE'S THE QUEEN OF CALIFORNIA
