California promises
By: steve goodman
1983
Beneath the moonlit sky
Shadows walk beside the water
Sad goodbye whispered on the shore
Hear those wind chimes play
They serenade the shadow lovers
Ring and fade away
Like california promises

I will never love another
Wait for me, til I return
But she never will
He waits for her beside the water
Faithful still
To california promises

(guitar solo)

I will never love another
Wait for me, til I return
Though she never will
He waits for her beside the water
Faithful still
To california promises

(guitar solo)

- notes:
Guitar solo: earl klugh
Background vocals: rita coolidge, david lasley, arnold mcculler
