i got to get to california lyrics – marvin gaye

i got to get to california

i got to get to california right away
i got to get to california right away
just to see the evening sun setting in the west
breaks my heart, reminds me of the true love that i left
in the sunset i can see my baby’s face just haunting me
reminding me of the tenderness that heaven knows was in her kiss
i had a love that was mine mine mine mine alone
but i played the fool and lord i left my happy home
what a fool a man can be, but this loneliness inside of me says
i got to get to california right away
i got to get to california

i wish i was there by my baby’s side
lord i wish i had listened to my heart and not my pride
she tried to tell me that i had no reason to tell her she was…
i was blinded by my pride and i just couldn’t see
now i’ve got to hurry, i’ve got a reason to worry
i’ve got to be on the move, true love i’m gonna lose
i pray it’s not too late, oh i might have to catch a freight
i got to get to california right away
i got to get to california right away

ohhhhh may have to hitchhike baby
might have to hop a freight
yea yeah now i’ve got to hurry
now i’ve got a reason to worry
i’ve got to be on the move
or true love i’m gonna lose
what a fool a man can be
but this loneliness inside of me says
i got to get to california right away
i got to get to california

might have to hitchhike, baby
might have to hitch a ride
oh now now i got to get to california
