California Jam lyrics

The Mountain Goats

Here we go. The uh, California Jam
One two three and

Helicopter in from Los Angeles
Land in Ontario
There's guys with cameras
"Hey you
Can I get a quick interview?"

Beat-up stretch limousine to the speedway
In the baking sun
Stay high all day
Take to the stage
Lords of the age

Drums rolling like buffalo down the plain
And I am an oncoming train
Me and the ghosts of Birmingham
Me and the ghosts of Birmingham

Light rigging overhead, rainbow behind
And the cloudless sky
And the infinite distances in my mind
Arms in the air
Sun in my hair

Rise like dancers, stick the landing
Feel kind of beautiful
Everybody here is beautiful
That's just how I feel
And it's real

Drums rolling like buffalo down the plain
And I am an oncoming train
Me and the ghosts of Birmingham
Me and the ghosts of Birmingham
