The California Songfacts says: In this song, Mitchell sings of going home to her beloved California. She sings as though she's been on a long journey - and indeed, she has. After a tough breakup with her longtime boyfriend Graham Nash , Mitchell hoofed her way across Europe. It was during that journey when Mitchell penned many of the songs on her Blue album.

    Joni Mitchell's California is the one song that takes me to another Time and Dimension. Her Blue album is a must for my Deserted Island list.
