Adios To California
written by John Hiatt

Smoky room and a thin blue light
Her arms were pale as white
Trying to outlast the night
howling at the moon

Living in the Canyon Inn
Hangdown hanna and whiskey jim
Dirty jeans and mudslide hymns
It all began with soon

So, adios to California
Nothing to do but turn around
Always thought there's someone coming for you
Only way you'd leave this town

Pasadena in the rain, eating donuts and reading Twain
How much longer can my brain set itself on fire?
You said that's it for me
Have a little faith, it might set you free
But your faith's no good, you see
For me and my desire


Two cigarettes from a package gone
Must have thought about it just that long
I never knew you were so strong
I guess I never will
