California Justice Lyrics

by Five For Fighting

Early one morning at county line
The swells 4 to 6 approaching 9
The barrel of my life hit the Malibu Sky
A Golden State pipe, Conchita was mine

Suddenly a local on a boogie in a thong
Cut in on my line, my barrel was gone
Her Pepper dine stud screamed, "Val that's what you get"
I shot him with a gun behind Neptune's Net

Killed a man, I don't know what the fuss is
I'm just looking for some California Justice
Killed a man, I don't know what the fuss is
I'm just looking for some California Justice

Took off in the Mustang for the 395
Double, double in Mohave, took a left at Lone Pine
I powered up the top of Mt. Whitney
They may not have a Jamba juice but here they'll never get me

While working my tan, looked down the cliff to see
A line of black and whites dropped by a yellow Jersey
Called uncle Arnie said, "What's going on?
He said, "New Sheriff in town, name's Lance Armstrong"

Killed a man, I don't know what the fuss is
I'm just looking for some California justice
Killed a man, I don't know what the fuss is
I'm just looking for some California justice

Hired a fixer to keep things blurry
Sent the shuttle to space for the perfect jury
The judge dropped the bar and to the court decreed
You can lay down all you like, tell me what you see?

California justice
California justice

I'm free, heading up the Truckee river
To catch me a brown though the water makes me shiver
Mistake I made was crossing the border
Casinos for me are cooked and made to order

I didn't intend to kill the dealer last night
But I doubled down to 20, his 16 pulled a 5
Now I'm heading back to Cali bound for Tahoe City

Killed a man, I don't know what the fuss is
I'm just looking for some California justice
Killed a man, I don't know what the fuss is
I'm just looking for some California justice

Moral of the story keep, the straight and narrow
Your eyes on the ball and your hands off the sparrow
Every country needs one broken arrow
At least we gave you Ronnie Reagan, Sonny and Chero

I'll meet you down behind Neptune's Net
Catch my honey in the thong, do you get it yet?
We'll catch barrels every day, I'm just 'Surfing U.S.A.'

California justice
California justice
It's just this, just this
