Dani California Lyrics


Gettin' born in the state of Mississippi

Papa was a copper and mama was a hippie

In Alabama she would swing a hammer

Price you gotta pay when you pick the panorama

She never knew that there was anything more than poor

What in the world? What does your confidant take me for?


Black bandana, sweet Louisiana

Robbin' on a bank in the state of Indiana

She's a runner, rebel and a stunner

Hunt em everywhere sayin baby whatcha gonna

Lookin' down the barrel of a hot metal forty five

Just another way to survive


Chorus -

California rest in peace

Simultaneous release

California show your teeth

She's my priestess, I'm your priest, yeah, yeah


She's a lover baby and a fighter

Shoulda seen her coming when it got a little brighter

With a name like Dani California

Day was gonna come when I was gonna mourn ya

A little lotus, she was stealin' another breath

I 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 you

Too true too sad sad sad...


First to fade her gifted animator

One for the now and eleven for the later

Never made it up to Minnesota

North Dakota man was a gunnin' for the quota


Down in the badlands she was savin' the best for last

It only hurts when I laugh

Gone too fast..
