Gettin' born in the state of MississippiPapa was a copper and mama was a hippieIn Alabama she would swing a hammerPrice you gotta pay when you pick the panoramaShe never knew that there was anything more than poorWhat in the world? What does your confidant take me for?
Black bandana, sweet LouisianaRobbin' on a bank in the state of IndianaShe's a runner, rebel and a stunnerHunt em everywhere sayin baby whatcha gonnaLookin' down the barrel of a hot metal forty fiveJust another way to survive
Chorus -California rest in peaceSimultaneous releaseCalifornia show your teethShe's my priestess, I'm your priest, yeah, yeah
She's a lover baby and a fighterShoulda seen her coming when it got a little brighterWith a name like Dani CaliforniaDay was gonna come when I was gonna mourn yaA little lotus, she was stealin' another breathI love my baby to death
Who knew the other side of you?Who knew that all this time to prove?Too true to say good bye to youToo true too sad sad sad...
First to fade her gifted animatorOne for the now and eleven for the laterNever made it up to MinnesotaNorth Dakota man was a gunnin' for the quotaDown in the badlands she was savin' the best for lastIt only hurts when I laughGone too fast..
