about

Written and Recorded by Former Friends of Young Americans for the album "Love and Vitriol".

lyrics

California crashed, a wave from L.A.
fields of Fresno to the Bay
avocados soft, persimmons sweet
girl in the Haight struck down in the street
singing...

redwood, clover, driftwood, beach
redwood, clover, driftwood, beach

California claimed all that we gave
the hours we couldn't save
like stones in Muir's wake,
crackers on a Sacramento lake
singing...

redwood, clover, driftwood, beach
redwood, clover, driftwood, beach

California spread her leaves like fern
with weed too moist to burn
in townie bars, on Humboldt farms
falling asleep at night in your arms
singing...

redwood, clover, driftwood, beach
redwood, clover, driftwood, beach

California passed like breath on skin
trees in mist, dunes in wind
still it sunk tender to marrow
I'd be yours for every tomorrow
singing...

redwood, clover, driftwood, beach
redwood, clover, driftwood, beach
