Typical yellow california sunsets,
Blonde curls are wet from the seawater splashing against her joyful looking face;
They are dancing on her suntanned cheeks.
Lafayette is a place she grew up into,
Grandpa and grandma filled her heart with country music.
The sound of some country record playing in the background was something quite unique.
Something inside her kept longing for more when she heard Dolly Parton & Emmylou Harris playing on the radio in a grocery store.
And there she was again,
At her favorite beach.
She was looking at those typical yellow california sunsets,
Her blonde curls were wet from the seawater splashing against her joyful looking face;
They danced on her suntanned cheeks.
She went home and giggled about some sand in her yellow cowboy boots,
Suddenly she squealed in excitement when she saw a yellow jacket showing in the storefront..
Of course she bought it!
To this day people may assume the colour yellow was always there in her roots.
Now she’s playing one ballad “Burning House”,
On a stage
And thousands of people in the audience are feeling their hearts lighting up just like burning flames.
What about those old sandy yellow cowboy boots,
And that yellow jacket?
I guess the colour never left her roots :).
