DANI CALIFORNIA

May 1, 2006

Getting born in the state of Mississippi
Papa was a copper and Mama was a hippie
In Alabama she was swinging hammer
Price you gotta pay when you pick the panorama
She never knew that there was anything more than poor
What in the world? What does your confidant take me for?

Black bandana, sweet Louisiana
robbing on a bank in the state of Indiana
She's a runner, rebel and a stunner
Coming everyway saying, "Baby, whatcha gonna?"
Looking down the barrel of a hot metal forty-five

Just another way to survive

California, rest in peace
Simultaneous release
California, show your teeth
She's my priestess, I'm your priest

She's a lover baby and a fighter
Should've seen her coming when it got a little brighter
With a name like "Dani California"
Devils gonna come but I was gonna warn ya
A little lonely, she was stealing another breath
I love my baby to death

California, rest in peace
Simultaneous release
California, show your teeth
She's my priestess, I'm your priest

Who knew the other side of you?
Who knew that all this tried to prove
Too true to say good bye to you
Too true to say say say…

Push the fader, gifted animator
One for the now and eleven for the later

Never made it up to Minnesota
North Dakota man was a gunning for the quota

Down in the badlands she was saving the best for last
It only hurts when I laugh
Gone too fast…

California, rest in peace
Simultaneous release
California, show your teeth
She's my priestess, I'm your priest

California, rest in peace
Simultaneous release
California, show your teeth
She's my priestess, I'm your priest
