Raised up on Midwestern dreams
Only a few shall get what everyone shall need
I took my family's burden and strapped it to my chest
Few hundred bucks and a kiss for luck and I pointed my dreams west

To California, come rescue me
California, I am almost free

I kept on drivin' to the settin' sun
The galaxies of angels welcome everyone
I took my heart out of its box, attached it to my sleeve
Well, I will be here every night because that's what I believe

In California, come rescue me
California, I am almost free

I will find my love, I will know my peace
I will seek my truth, I am almost free, I am almost free

I am almost free
I am almost free
I am almost free

In California, I am almost free
In California, I am almost free
Rescue me
California, I am almost free
