Lyrics
Going to California
and I won’t be coming home
Going to California
and I won’t be coming home
New York’s cold and lonely since you left me on my own

Well I dug out my old suitcase
and I packed up everything
Well I dug out my old suitcase
and I packed up everything
Only thing I left behind is this useless wedding ring

Bought me a ticket
On a brand new areo-plane
Bought me a ticket
On a brand new areo-plane
No sense in driving. You already drove me insane.

Solid lyrics
Good blues, well sung. Lyrics told a story without being too wordy. Maybe just a tad faster tempo needed but then again if I am not sure it is probably fine just as it is. Hey, it is your song so it is what it needs to be for you and that's what counts. I'm not making much sense at this late hour but I did enjoy it!

muddy blues
I like the guitar tone and this dirty and blurry approach to drums really works for some styles, this song is a good example.

guitar tone
Thanks D

I used a gibson thirty watt tube amp on a step ladder about waist high, an OCD pedal and mic-ed with an SM58. There is compression and a limiter on the EQing end and a little big of reverb with Space Designer.

A retro, low fi feel that suits the mood of the song. Liking the vocals, especially the harmonies and the lead break tone is gritty as all get out. A fine ride. Thanks, Peter.
