I Love You, California (Official State Song) – Rick Pickren

“I Love You, California” Lyrics

I love you, California
You’re the greatest state of all
I love you in the winter
Summer, spring and in the fall
I love your fertile valleys
Your dear mountains I adore
I love your grand old ocean
And I love her rugged shore
When the snow crowned Golden Sierras
Keep their watch o’er the valleys bloom
It is there I would be in our land by the sea
Every breeze bearing rich perfume
It is here nature gives of her rarest
It is Home Sweet Home to me
And I know when I die
I shall breathe my last sigh
For my sunny California
I love your redwood forests
Love your fields of yellow grain
I love your summer breezes
And I love your winter rain
I love you, land of flowers
Land of honey, fruit and wine
I love you, California
You have won this heart of mine
I love your old gray Missions
Love your vineyards stretching far
I love you, California
With your Golden Gate ajar
I love your purple sunsets
Love your skies of azure blue
I love you, California
I just can’t help loving you
I love you, Catalina
You are very dear to me
I love you, Tamalpais
And I love Yosemite
I love you, land of sunshine
Half your beauties are untold
I loved you in my childhood
And I’ll love you when I’m old
