Going to California
London Philharmonic Orchestra Lyrics

Spent My Days With A Woman Unkind
Smoked My Stuff And Drank All My Wine
Made Up My Mind To Make A New Start
Going To California With An Aching 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 Them Tell You That They're All The Same
The Sea Was Red And The Sky Was Grey
Wondered How Tomorrow Could Ever Follow Today
The Mountains And The Canyons Started To Tremble And Shake
As The Children Of The Sun Began To Awake
Seems That The Wrath Of The Gods
Got A Punch On The Nose And It Started 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
To 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 In My Mountain Of Dreams
Telling Myself It's Not As Hard Hard Hard As It Seems

I actually met The Who in the late 60s when they were still playing college gyms, prior to Tommy. I was with three friends and we were 17.It's a long true story that I won't bore everyone, suffice it to say I was in awe, and remain so to this day, even with the loss of John and Kieth.

Amo Tommy, em especial esta versão com a London Orchestra. Obrigado por postar!

It's not classic rock, it's classical rock. It demonstrates the genius of Pete Townsend. Thank you.
