California Dreamin'
The Mamas & the Papas Lyrics


All the leaves are brown (all the leaves are brown)
And the sky is gray (and the sky is gray)
I've been for a walk (I've been for a walk)
On a winter's day (on a winter's day)
I'd be safe and warm (I'd be safe and warm)
If I was in L.A. (if I was in L.A.)

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

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

All the leaves are brown (all the leaves are brown)
And the sky is gray (and the sky is gray)
I've been for a walk (I've been 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)

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

Listened to this song many nights in Vietnam while down in our bunker. Boy was I dreaming about California & being home.

I lost alot of friends to that war I'm glad you made it back home little did we know back then how that war would change the lives of so many friends and family... all the men in our families served my uncles. cousins and even my father who is still here and everytime we go to the va I just look at the faces of both the men and women and tell them thank you for everything you did the sacrifices that you made and so much more you laid your life on the line giving everything you had so that I could enjoy my freedom.

I played this song for a few friends. None of them liked it. Clearly, I need new friends.
