    lyrics (open)

    Getting 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 break the panorama

    She never knew that there was
    Anything more than poor

    What in the world does your
    Company take me for

    Black bandana sweet Louisiana
    Robbin' on a bank in the state of Indiana

    She’s a runner, rebel and a stunner
    On her merry way sayin’
    Baby what you gonna

    Looking down the barrel of a
    Hot metal 45
    Just another way to survive

    California rest in peace
    Simultaneous release
    California show your teeth
    She’s my priestess; I'm your priest

    She’s a lover baby and a fighter
    Shoulda seen it comin’ when
    It got a little brighter

    With a name like Dani California
    The day was gonna come
    When I was gonna mourn ya

    A little loaded she was
    Stealin’ another breath
    I love my baby to death

    California rest in peace
    Simultaneous release
    California show your teeth
    She’s my priestess; I'm your priest

    Who knew the other side of you
    Who knew what others died to prove
    Too true to say goodbye to you
    Too true to say say say

    Push the fader, 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

    California rest in peace
    Simultaneous release
    California show your teeth
    She’s my priestess; I'm your priest

    California rest in peace
    Simultaneous release
    California show your teeth
    She’s my priestess; I'm your priest
