Cold In California
Author: Ben Laney

The last summer day
has come and gone
Winter's on the way
no, no it won't be long
Now dead Autumn leaves
are drifting to the ground
But these memories
will still be all around

Oh, oh it's cold
Cold in California tonight
I'm chilled to my soul
in California tonight
Even my friend the moon
appears to be covered in ice
Oh, oh it's cold
Cold in California tonight

Where my Baby's gone
well, I guess God knows
She's been gone so long
and doing fine I suppose
Now I wish I could say
say that I'm okay too
But it's just not that way
I'll tell you the truth

Oh, oh it's cold
Cold in California tonight
I'm chilled to my soul
in California tonight
Even my friend the moon
appears to be covered in ice
Oh, oh it's cold
Cold in California tonight
Cold in California tonight

------- Author's Notes -------

Some think it's sunny and warm year round in California. I'll tell you the truth, it's cold in California tonight. I'm ready to put on my thermals, snow boots, and parka. Then I'll hitch up the sled dogs and mush 'em for Tahiti, kids! I'll try not to run over any penguins along the way!

Terrie*, it got so cold the marrow in my bones..

Terrie*, it got so cold the marrow in my bones felt like one of those slushy things from 7-11. I admit it, I will start whining and thinking about Tahiti when the temperature drops like it did here the other night. Thank you very much for your encouraging comment on this one, girlfriend. I appreciate it mucho a lot! I am glad to know you like it!
Best Regards, Ben
