Going to California - Led Zeppelin


Recommended Posts

Hello my musical genius friends...maybe you can help me again...I was listening to the classic rock station and heard a song with this line in it: "Searching for a woman that's never been born". It is a male singer with only a guitar as accompaniment. The best i can describe it is that it has a lazy, laid-back kind of sound to it. I wish I had more to tell here, but that all I got...

Thanx for any possible help!

Hi Janet, and welcome back.

The song you're referring to might be Led Zepplin's "Going to California"

Spent my days with a woman unkind,

Smoked my stuff and drank all my wine.

Made up my mind to make a new start,

Going To California with an aching in my heart.

Someone told me there's a girl out there

With love in her eyes and flowers in her hair.

Took my chances on a big jet plane,

Never let them tell you that they're all the same.

The sea was red and the sky was grey,

Wondered how tomorrow could ever follow today.

The mountains and the canyons started to tremble and shake

As the children of the sun began to awake.

Seems that the wrath of the Gods

Got a punch on the nose and it started to flow;

I think I might be sinking.

Throw me a line if I reach it in time

I'll meet you up there where the path

Runs straight and high.

To find a queen without a king;

They say she plays guitar and cries and sings.

La la la la

Ride a white mare in the footsteps of dawn

Tryin' to find a woman who's never, never, never been born.

Standing on a hill in my mountain of dreams,

Telling myself it's not as hard, hard, hard as it seems.

hope that helps.
