Sacramento & Lodi, California

Sacramento California Capitol

Sacramento California Capitol

Sacramento est la capitale administrative de l’état de Californie. De ce fait, je pense tant qu’on est dans les environs il est toujours intéressant d’y passer, juste pour voir dans le cadre de notre voyage. Sacramento, cette ville qui ne démérite pas du tout à mon avis par rapport à San Francisco et Los Angeles. Tout comme d’autres villes de Californie. Ecoutez bien les paroles !

There’s something about the weather that ev’rybody loves
They call it the Indian spring of Sacramento
And when the sun is up in the sky
The wind is blowing by the riverside most ev’ry day
You’re in Sacramento – a wonderful town
Sing, sing, sing, din-di-din

There’s something about the people that ev’rybody knows
That gives you a tender feeling of confusion
You’re feeling lonely but you don’t know
Until this other feeling here inside you starts to grow
You’re in Sacramento – a wonderful town
Sing, sing, sing, din-di-din

Now that spring is near again
And you’re thinking if only you were not so lonely – boo-hoo
But you can ease your restless mind (ease your restless mind)
‘Cos all the people are lovin’ kind in Sacramento

There’s something about the weather that ev’rybody loves
They call it the Indian spring of Sacramento
You’re feeling lonely but you don’t know
Until this other feeling here inside you starts to grow
You’re in Sacramento – a wonderful town
Sing, sing, sing, din-di-din

Sacramento, Sacramento
Sacramento, Sacramento
Sacramento, Sacramento
Sacramento, Sacramento . . .

Et puis, savez vous que Lodi n’est qu’à 15 m d’altitude ? Alors qu’on est déjà assez loin dans les terres, au delà des montagnes ! Lodi, c’est aussi l’agriculture Californienne. Et par ces deux villes là passe la Sacramento River. Allez ! Musique encore !

Just about a year ago,
I set out on the road,
Seeking my fame and fortune,
Looking for a pot of gold.
Things got bad, and things got worse,
I guess you will know the tune.
Oh ! Lord, Stuck in Lodi again.

Rode in on the Greyhound,
I’ll be walking out if I go.
I was just passing through,
Must be seven months or more.
Ran out of time and money,
Looks like they took my friends.
Oh ! Lord, I’m stuck in Lodi again.

The man from the magazine said I was on my way.
Somewhere I lost connections, ran out of songs to play.
I came into town, a one night stand,
Looks like my plans fell through
Oh ! Lord, Stuck in Lodi again.
Mmmm…

If I only had a dollar, for ev’ry song I’ve sung.
And ev’ry time I’ve had to play
While people sat there drunk.
You know, I’d catch the next train back to where I live.
Oh ! Lord, I’m stuck in Lodi again.
Oh ! Lord, I’m stuck in Lodi again.
