    Hitching up 101
    Ended up on a flat bed Chevy
    Breaking at the setting sun
    Slept all night in the cold, Lord
    Thought I'd nearly freeze alive
    'Cause all I had was a US blanket
    Dated nineteen forty-five

    On the California coastline
    Trying to have myself a good time
    On the California coastline
    Trying to have myself a good time

    Got loose from jail in three days
    (Sheriff had locked my base?)
    (Maybe) .......... (for Utah?)
    .............. the human race
    And if I live to be a hundred
    Ain't never going back again
    Couldn't think of a colder place to visit
    (Or an easier place to sin?)

    On the California coastline
    Trying to have myself a good time
    On the California coastline
    Trying to have myself a good time

    ........ (out of?) nowhere
    Somewhere west of everybody else
    I'm .......... (out of?) nowhere
    Somewhere west of everybody else

    On the California coastline
    Trying to have myself a good time
    On the California coastline
    Trying to have myself a good time
    (repeat to fade)
