The West Coast

about

For B's birthday a few years ago, I wrote this song about our trip to San Francisco for his birthday the year before.

This is kind of a ballad when played live, but Clay took it to Cali doo-wop land on this recording. It's definitely a little something different and unlike any song of mine yet recorded.

This was the first song I ever performed in my new house!

lyrics

My first time, we stayed with a friend of mine
airport ride, he drove us in, into the big town
hey, and all around we were surrounded
by the fog and I found it blocking Cali sunset
as you showed me around

but August 29th was a great day in my life

remember that night
we got drunk on red wine
and it was my first time
out on the West coast
You were almost ready
for me
you told me you loved me
but then we had to go back home
and I loved you the most
out on the West coast

So we ran around, we burned up 10 days on the town
and nothing seemed to get us down
when we were out on the West coast
and biking over the Golden Gate
oh, it was the perfect day
just to be in love and celebrate
I think I'll make one last toast,
one last toast

to August 29th, a great day in my life

remember that night
we got drunk on red wine
and it was my first time
out on the West coast
You were almost ready
for it
you told me you wanted it
but then we had to go back home
and I loved you the most
out on the West coast

and nothing ever was the same
nothing ever felt that way
again
you know I would have changed my name
but plans always seem to rearrange
and bend

but don't forget
that night
we got drunk on red wine
and it was my first time
out on the West coast
You were almost ready
for it
you told me you wanted it
but then we had to go back home
and I loved you the most
out on the West coast
