  • Lyrics: I was born and raised in California dressed in white for my dads employer But I was dreamin of the south where the war had been won I was alone with you in the early morning My last goodnight as I fell before him But not a word came from my mouth My eyes had been shut We were told to pray for our young fathers who were all at war with poison arrows fighting for the lord to save us from ourselves I'd sit a top my fathers shoulders watch the fire as the wind grew colder I could feel that he was proud as he whistled to himself Dried up dirty coffin corners hide for hours swapping stories the battle lines were drawn in the dust on an El camino we were taught to look over shoulders Tumbled streets Just barely sober ready to believe in anybody's dream
