California Dreaming – California Dreaming lyrics

All the leaves are brown
And the sky is grey
I've been for a walk
On a winter's day

I'd be safe and warm
If I was in L. A
California Dreamin'
On such a winter's day

Stopped into a church
I passed along the way
Well, I got down on my knees
And I began to pray

You know the preacher likes the cold
He knows I'm gonna stay
California Dreamin'
On such a winter's day

All the leaves are brown
And the sky is grey
I've been for a walk
On a winter's day

If I didn't tell her
I could leave today
California Dreamin'
On such a winter's day

    The original belongs to The Mamas And Papas.
    The group had moved from L. A. To New York in hopes of bettering their careers, but fell on hard times, financially and personally.
    This song is about John's feelings on one of those many times they discussed going "home", and knew they couldn't. At least, not right away.
    A short six months later, California Dreaming became one of the most successful of the pop-folk songs of the 60's.
