When I come over that mountain Lord,
the air fills up my lungs an answered prayer.
Her bridges reaching out to me, a pretty love, patient, waiting there.
I can’t wait to cross the water, one of her own sons & daughters, coming home.
Like a child without their mother, a lad without his lover,
When I’m far from you I’m nothing, but alone.
San Francisco, I so miss you today.
With your sweet sea breezes blowing,
your streetlights softly glowing by The Bay
San Francisco, you're still on my mind
I can’t quit your curvy hillsides, your misty morning blue eyes,
I stare into, and lose all track of time.
To many a western dreamer, this city’s sang a sultry siren
They come running, wide-eyed, ready with a plan, some with nothing
Every neighborhood a nation, every city block a brand-new different
From Lands End, down to Mission; out in HP where they’re
They’ll raise a glass in praise of what they’ve found.
San Francisco, I know it’s been rough.
Your Loving Summer’s just a memory, and it’s hard
to be real friendly,
When you work all day, and still it ain’t enough.
San Francisco, I still think you're fine.
Kings and Queen’s change places.
There’s bound to
be new faces, but
You’ll always be the one true love of mine.
Now when I get this feeling, I catch a bus downtown and take the
I roll through The Central Valley, into Richmond,
where the warships were made.
Take a ride under the water, and make my way upstairs to Market
I got all day to drink my coffee, ride the bus, and see the city
with my feet.
Oh San Francisco, I’ll come back some day.
But I had to earn my medals, and there’s still a few more
battles in the way.
San Francisco, you’ll see when I’m through.
When I’ve slayed my biggest dragons, I’ll saddle up
And cut a trail, heading home to you.
