California Dreamin'

California Dreamin'
(John and Michelle Phillips)

 All the leaves are brown
 And the sky is grey
 I went for a walk
 On a winter's day
 I'd be safe and warm
 If I was in L.A.
 California dreamin'
 On such a winter's day

 I stopped into a church (stopped into a church)
 I passed along the way (passed along the way)
 You know, I got down on my knees (got down on my knees)
 And I pretend to pray (I pretend to pray)
 Oh, the preacher likes the cold (preacher likes the cold)
 He knows I'm gonna stay (knows I'm gonna stay)
 Oh, California dreamin' (California dreamin')
 On such a winter's day

 All the leaves are brown (the leaves are brown)
 And the sky is grey (and the sky is grey)
 I went for a walk (I went for a walk)
 On a winter's day (on a winter's day)
 If I didn't tell her (if I didn't tell her)
 I could leave today (I could leave today)

 Oh, California dreamin' (California dreamin')
 On such a winter's day (California dreamin')
 On such a winter's day (California dreamin')
 On such a winter's day (California dreamin')
 On such a winter's day

Written by John and Michelle Phillips, (c) late 1960's
 Found on America In Concert (95) and Heard.

 In the soundtrack version of this song, the words "I pretend to pray" have
 been changed to "I began to pray".
