I often think of strange land
Place where I have never been befo'
I often think of strange land
Place where I have never been befo'
Because I'm having bad luck
Ev'rywhere I go

Out in California
That is where I long to be
Way out in California
That's where I long to be
Because my trouble and worry
Has really came down on me

Sometime I wanna be in L'ousiana
Down by the Gulf of Mexico
Sometime I wanna be in L'ousiana
Down by the gulf of Mexico
And then sometime
I don't know where in the world I wanna go

Ain't it bad, people
To have to give up the one you love?
Ain't it bad, people
To have to give up the one you love?
It make you feel like
Givin' yo' soul to the Lord, above

To look in my baby's face
Makes me feel so sad and blue
To look in my baby's face
Makes me feel so sad and blue
When she's gone to a strange land
People, it's sad she don't want you.
