I made a trip to California just last week to get those castalians sounds on me
There on the corner of a parking lot was six kids playin' dirty rock
It was the California Uptight Band away out back there was a guitar man
I asked him to pick a little Wildwood Flower he looked at me kinda sore
He said what's wild about a wood flower man
I told him maybe you don't understand
I hummed him a little till he found the beat he nearly picked me off my feet
[ ac.guitar - banjo - dobro - fiddle ]
I stayed and I taught him a tone or two
A little Earl's Breakdown and some Mountain Dew
And now this group has got a brand new style they're drivin' California wild

Now it's a brand new California Uptight Band
Now they're the leaders of the west coast plan
A little education from the country side they're takin' California for a ride
I wouldn't put you on cause it ain't no gag
The Uptight Band has got a brand new bag
If you see the California Uptight Band tell them you're a wood flower man
Now it's a brand new California Uptight Band playin' a song about a wood flower man
[ ac.guitar - banjo - dobro - fiddle ]
Now it's a brand new California Uptight Band playin' a song about a wood flower man
A brand new California Uptight Band playin' a song about a wood flower man
