California (3:49)

Cover of Blue

From Blue and 7 other releases

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.

Sitting in a park in Paris, France
Reading the news and it sure looks bad
They won't give peace a chance
That was just a dream some of us had
