Ahhhhh..... Ahhhhh..... Ahhhhh.....
Ahhhhh..... Ahhhhh..... Ahhhhh..... Fade out...

Spent my days with a woman unkind:
Smoked my stuff and drank all my wine.
Made up my mind, make a new start,
Goin' to California with an achin' in my heart.
Someone told me there's a girl out there
With love in her eyes and flowers in her hair.

Took my chances on a big jet plane.
Never let 'em tell you that they're all the same.
Ah, the Sea was red and the Sky was grey:
I wondered how tomorrow could ever follow today.
The mountains and the canyons start to tremble and shake:
Children of the Sun begin to wake.... [spoken:] watch out


Seems like the wrath of the Gods got a punch on the nose
and it's startin' to flow, I think I might be sinking.
Throw me a line, if I reach it in time
(I'll) meet you up there where the path runs straight and high.


Find a Queen without a King,
They say she plays guitar and cries and sings: la-la-la-la.
Ride a white mare in the footsteps of Dawn,
Tryin' to find a woman who's never, never, never been born.
Standing on a hill and a mountain of dreams,
Telling myself it's not as hard, hard, hard as it seems....

Ahhhhh..... Ahhhhh..... Ahhhhh.....
Ahhhhh..... Ahhhhh..... Ahhhhh..... Fade out...
