friends in california lyrics – waylon jennings

i’ve got friends in california
who really care about me
and right now a friend is what i need the most
somewhere out in california
is where i ought to be
so i’ll pack up my trouble
and take ’em to the coast

this old town is gettin’ colder
with winter comin’ on
but it was just as cold back in juli
there ain’t nothin’ here to hold me
with storm clouds movin’ in
lord knows i need a friend and sunny skies
i’ve got some cousins up near frisco
they’ve been on my mind
and my best friend’s got a place in malibu
i’ve got an old flame in the desert
livin’ on the falkland
i’d be better off with her then here with you

i’ve got friends in california
who really care about me
right now a friend is what i need the most
somewhere out in california
is where i ought to be
so i’ll pack up my trouble
and take ’em to the coast
