STEPHEN RAY LYRICS - California Country

Written by Stephen Ray

Verse 1:

Well let me tell you bout the place that I come from

We got lakes and river sides and four wheelin' backroads

And like every country song, we got girls that got it goin on

Now the country world’s gonna know the west coast can hold its own

Chorus:

When we lose ourselves, in the middle of that stagecoach crowd

On top of that motorhome in the dirt road, we’re singing all our favorite songs

Now can’t you see that we make time slow down

Cuz you aint gotta be from Tennessee, when all ya really want, is California Country.

Verse 2:

Now let me tell you bout how I grew up back when

Bounced from Green Bay Wisconsin to Detroit Michigan

But homebase was always California as a kid.

And I grew up playing rock shows with my brother singing, Blink now what’s my age again?

But all the pretty ladies always playing Tom Petty, McGraw, and Dierks and Paisley in the end.

Chorus:

When we lose ourselves, in the middle of that stagecoach crowd

On top of that motorhome in the dirt road, we’re singing all our favorite songs

Now can’t you see that we make time slow down

Cuz you aint gotta be from Tennessee, when all ya really want, is California Country.

Bridge:

So hold your horses now, don’t get ahead of yourself

It’s not where you are now, it’s who you’re with and how you got there

And if you didn’t figure it out, country ain't just a place or a sound

It’s a way you feel and you’ll know it when you get there

Chorus:

When we lose ourselves, in the middle of that stagecoach crowd

On top of that motorhome in the dirt road, we’re singing all our favorite songs

Now can’t you see that we make time slow down

Cuz you aint gotta be from Tennessee, when all ya really want, is California Country.
