GOLD
John Stewart

1. When the lights go down in the California town,
People are in for the evening.
I jump into my car and I throw in my guitar,
My heart beatin' time with my breathin'.

CHORUS: Drivin' over Kanan [sic]*, singin' to my soul,
There's people out there turnin' music into gold.

2. Well, my buddy Jim Bass he's a-workin' pumpin' gas,
And he makes two-fifty for an hour.
He's got rhythm in his hands as he's tappin' on the cans,
Sings rock and roll in the shower. CHORUS

3. Ah, the California girls are the greatest in the world.
Each one's a song in the making,
Singin' rock to me. I can hear the melody.
The story is there for the takin'. CHORUS TWICE

REPEAT VERSE 1; CHORUS TWICE

People out there turnin' music into gold
People out there turnin' music into gold

People out there turnin' music into gold, into gold
People out there turnin' music into gold, into gold

[*I have no idea what Kanan is, but that's what I found in the lyrics I copied. I would think "Canaan" but I can't find a town in California named Canaan, either.]
