Kicking dust on the canyon road
I got a free ride to Roscoe
San Diego Freeway, I'm almost home
Say goodbye to them weekend thrills
Can't nobody find my five dollar bill
and this California livin' is killin' me

Swimming pools and barbecue
Lotsa wine and a song or two
Everybody's high on Bobby's credit to Betsy
Sun's tryin' to rise but won't nobody let it
and this California livin' is killing me.

I've made up my mind what I'm gonna do
I'm going back to Texas in a day or two
I ain't gonna give up, I'm just gonna rest up
maybe see a friend or two.

Mr. Bus Driver, I misunderstood
Did you say Halloween or Hollywood?
Some people I've been meeting
Strikin' me kind of funny
Lord only knows what goes with my money
and this California livin' is killing me.
