Raised up on Midwestern dreams
Only a few shall get
What everyone shall need
I took my family's burden
And I strapped it to my chest
With 100 bucks and a kiss for luck
I pointed my dreams west

To California
Come rescue me
California
I am almost free

Kept on drivin into the settin' sun
Galaxies of angels welcome everyone
I took my heart out of its box
Attached it to my sleeve
Well I will be here every night
Because thats what I believe


In California
Come rescue me
California
I am almost free

I will find my love
I will know my peace
I will seek my truth
I am almost free
I am almost free
I am almost free
I am almost free
I am almost free
In California (I am almost free)
In California (I am almost free)
Rescue me (California)
I am almost free
