I brought her here from Arkansas,
A simple country girl,
To try a Californian way of life.
But it didn't take her long to learn
The ways of the modern world,
Now she's California's fastest moving wife.
She's working on it over time
And soon she'll finish me.
And the world's saddest man will live here in Los Angeles.
Of all the things she's ever done,
She's making this her best,
I got the fastest growing heartache in the west.
Till we came here no man had ever
Touched her heart but me,
She'd never tasted any lips but mine.
But I know now, man have seen
What only I should see
Since her lips has tasted California wine.
