California and You Lyrics

Oh! you old Pacific coast,
Oh! you land I love the most,
Soon I’ll be returning to you,
To my sweetheart loving and true;

I just mailed a little note,
Written to the one I miss,
Just a simple little note,
I began by saying this.


Don’t you remember
California in September?
As we stood in the wood ‘neath the beautiful sky,
I made you cry,
When I whispered good-bye, but dearie,

Don’t you remember
That I promised I’d be true?
So expect a choo choo
That’s bringing me back to California and you.

Second Verse

Oh! you orange scented air,
Oh! you train that brings me there,
Ev’ry other country I see,
Only makes you dearer to me;

Thro’ my Pullman window pane
As my station’s drawing near,
I can hear myself again,
Singing in my honey’s ear.
