On my way to sunny California
On my way to spend another sunny day

Water, water
Get yourself in the cool, clear, water
The sun shines brightly down on Penny's place
The sun shines brightly down on the bay

The air's so clean, it'll just take your mind away
Take your mind away
Take your mind away

Have you ever been south of Monterey?
Barrancas carve the coast line
And in the chaparral flows to the sea
'Neath waves of golden sunshine

And have you ever been north of Morro Bay
The south coast plows the sea
And the people there are of the breed
They don't need electricity

Water, water
Cool cascades of clear, clear water
The sun dance final scene sets the hills ablaze
Horizon edges quick up the mountain's way

Have you ever been down Salina's way?
Where Steinbeck found the valley
And he wrote about it the way it was
In his travelin's with Charlie

And have you ever walked down through the sycamores
Where the farmhouse used to be
There the monarch's autumn journey ends
On a windswept Cyprus tree

Water, water
Get yourself in that cool, clear, water
The sun shines brightly down on Penny's place
The air's so clean that it just takes your mind away
Take your mind away
Take your mind away

Have you ever been to a festival
The Big Sur congregation?
Where country Joe will do his show
And he'd sing about liberty

And the people there in the open air
One big family
Yeah, the people there love to sing and share
Their new found liberty
