lyrics

Dearest brother tell our mother
I might not return at all
I’m chasing gold out in California
I might strike it rich or I might starve
But would you give her my regards

California your milk and honey
I can feel it in my bones

Please take my house and watch over my wife
Teach my boy to be a good man
He’ll think me weak for leaving him in his sleep
But the weight of the color, it lay heavy across my chest
It was more than I could stand

California your milk and honey
I can feel it in my bones

Well I’m sorry brother but I could never say it
Because this has been my secret not to tell
Oh my weakness, it made me feel so strong
It’s broken me down, Lord so I have gone
This is signed your brother,
Paul

California your milk and honey
I can feel it in my bones
