You always said someday you'd go to live
In Southern California
And me I'd stay right here in Tennessee
You always talked about the better days
In Southern California
But if you'll stay in Tennessee
I promise there'll be better days with me

It's not that I don't love you but I hear the call
From Southern California
There's something I can't find in Tennessee
Silver screens and limousines
They wait for me in Southern California
Though you've been so good to me
The time has come you'll have to set me free

Tomorrow when you leave you'll take my heart
To Southern California
But just remember I'll be here
To keep your heart with me until you see

Well, it's been five years an' I guess I've cried a million tears
Lookin' out the window of this little room
Right over that flashin' neon sign that says, "Bar"
It's almost midnight an' time to go downstairs and go to work
I wonder how he's doin' in, Tennessee?

Well, here I sit by the window of this big old lonely mansion
Lookin' out over the Smokies and on in everything I can see
Oh, I guess by now she's found what she was lookin' for
And as I look at this old faded photograph of the girl that I still love
I wonder if she ever, thinks of me?

But the weather's good
In Southern California
