"Goodbye West Coast"

[Verse 1]
Hazy day, making my way
Out somewhere on the motor highway
Heading down, east coast-bound
Another day's been lost and found

[Verse 2]
I wrote down a few things to say
Got a few things left to say to my best friend's grave
And I'm hardly awake
I pull into a stop off the motor highway
Silly day, I read in the trades
They're makin' films about friends I'd made
No sound, they just turned around
The next thing you know they were lost then found
Alright

[Chorus]
Goodbye, west coast
Going back, going home
Goodbye, west coast
Going home

[Verse 3]
I broke down in a halfway town
News of the day is some poor girl drowned
The papers say she went to the bay
The very next day they just found her that way
Sunny day, traffic waits
Child waves to the motorcade, fade
Ah, the window's down
A pretty sound's been lost then found

[Chorus]
Goodbye, west coast
Going back, going home
Goodbye, west coast
Going home

[Bridge]
Highway so long
Take me back to where I belong
Highway so long
Where do I belong?
Mama, I say, look at what mess you made
Mama, I say, what a mess you made
Look at what you made
What a mess you made
What a mess you made
Alright

[Chorus]
Goodbye, west coast
I'm going back and I'm going home
Goodbye, west coast
Going home

[Post-Chorus]
I'm making my way to my best friend's grave
Making my way to my best friend's grave
Child waves to the motorcade
Making my way to my best friend's grave
I'm making my way

[Outro]
Goodbye, west coast
I'm going home
