All the leaves are brown and the sky is grey
I've been for a walk on a winters dayI'd be save and warm if I was in LA california dreaming on such a winters day

Stepped into a church I passed along the way well, I got down on my knees andI pretended to pray you know the preacher likes the cold he knows I'm gonna stay
California dreaming on such a winters day


All the leaves a brown and the sky is grey I've been for a walk on a winters day
If I didn't tell her I could leave today
California dreaming on such a winters day

    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 pop-folk song of the 60's.
