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

Horizon edges quick up the mountain's way.
Have you ever been down Salinas way? Where Steinbeck found the valley And he wrote about it the way it was in his travelin's with Charley 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 get water get yourself in that Get yourself in that get yourself in that cool, clear, water The sun shines brightly down on Penny's place Get yourself in that water 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
