Take Me Back

When it's cold outside I wish for summer
When the heat comes down I pray for rain
There's no relief in sight for this body
And there won't be till I'm laying in my grave

(chorus)
Take me back to California
Way up north there on the borderline
Where all my friends and my dear family
Will gather round me one last time
Yes, lay me down in Siskiyou County
In the good earth where the buck brush grows
And I'll go floating above Mt. Shasta
And then I'll drift on out to the coast
Take me back, take me back, take me back Lord, just one more time
Take me back, take me back, take me back to California when I die

It gets so hard out here a living
So far away from the people that I love
I miss those days in that little town Yreka
With the good Lord lookin' down from up above

(repeat chorus)
