She lived at the end of a little dirt road
In a house where secrets go untold
Barefoot in a cotton dress, dark hair in a tangled mess
And a head full of crazy dreams
She said

I'm going to California
A place where the sun always shines
I'm goin to California
And I'm leavin everything behind

You can't help, but feel a little bit touched
When your daddy loves you a little too much
You can wish on four leaf clovers, but all the fields have been plowed
Over
And there's nothin left to do but fly away

I'm going to California
A place where the sun always shines
I'm goin to California
And I'm leavin everything behind

Stars burn like candles on that two-lane highway
She made her wish, and disappeared on her 18th birthday
And she said

I'm going to California
A place where the sun always shines
I'm goin to California
And I'm leavin everything behind

I'm goin to California
And I'm leavin everything behind

Oh California
I'm goin to California

Oh California
Leavin it all behind
California....
