Lyrics

They say there's gold in orange flowers,
Gold in the streams
But it's cold in the shower of a California dream
The San Andreas motion
Shakes a person out of sleep
And the vast Pacific Ocean makes a promise it can't keep

Follow the bells of El Camino
Follow the royal highway through
Mission to mission, my intuition says
They will lead me home to you

There's smoke choking the valley
And the surf is poison-tossed
But when the condors somehow rally
Then hope is not all lost
The peak of Tamalpais meets the bottom of the sky
And though the author's view is biased
It's perfect in her eye

Follow the bells of El Camino
Follow the royal highway through
Mission to mission, my intuition says
They will lead me home to you
