lyrics

In Twenty Nine-Palms doing twenty-eight things wrong
Emmy Lou, Gram Parsons on the Juke Box
When the barkeep, she said, “son where you from?”
She just smiled when I said “California”

Shoulda hopped me a train out of Tehachapi
But I got high in Northern California
When the sheriff said “son, where are you from”
And I just lied, spent the night in County

I was born in New Orleans, a Camp Pendleton Marine
And my heart, she bleeds for California
If I walk through these fields in this golden state I feel
That my heart belongs to California

My sergeant said, three degrees and he’ll be dead
As I squeezed off a round to my target
As the casings hit the ground, a bullet makes no sound
It ain’t heaven, it’s California

With the sun goin’ down, rising from the ground
Them beautiful freedom towers
On that 9-11th day, seems like yesterday
I won’t forget California

I was born in New Orleans, a Camp Pendleton Marine
And my heart, she bleeds California
As I walk through these fields in this golden state I feel
That my heart belongs to California

I might die in the middle east, brought down to my feet
But my heart, she bleeds California
Yeah my heart, she bleeds California
Yeah my heart belongs to California
