All I can see is the sea and the sky
And the sky is blue and the sea is green
Yesterday's a cabaret
Gowns of satin on ladies gay
Yesterday's a cabaret
Sounds of laughter on faces grey
Yesterday's a carousel
Catch the ring and all will be well
From the coast of California
Up to the Oregon border
I've thumbed a thousand miles I guess
Sitting in a roadside diner
The big trucks rollin' by
I don't seem to know at times what's best

And still I'd like to tell her
That I miss her so
In north Ontario

If you're drivin' east to Reno
Or north to Mendecino
I hope you find your rainbow's end
This highway is my rainbow
And though I might regret it
I'm so glad I said it way back when

And still I'd like to tell her
That I miss her so
In north Ontario
