Lyrics

I bid farewell to the state of ol' New York
My home away from home
In the state of New York I came of age
When first I started roaming
And the trees grow high in New York state 
And they shine like gold in Autumn  Never had the blues from whence I came
But in New York state I caught 'em

Talk to me of Mendocino  Closing my eyes I hear the sea
Must I wait, must I follow?
Won't you say "Come with me?"

And it's on to Southbend, Indiana 
Flat out on the western plain
Rise up over the Rockies and down on into California 
Out to where but the rocks remain

And let the sun set on the ocean 
I will watch it from the shore 
Let the sun rise over the redwoods 
I'll rise with it till I rise no more

Talk to me of Mendocino  closing my eyes, I hear the sea
Must I wait, must I follow?
Won't you say "Come with me?"
