Shuffle up and deal

Billy Bragg & Wilco — California Stars

We had this song in our wedding playlist. It’s an old Woody Guthrie song so the imagery of the vocals is great and the arrangement is beautiful. While I’m not the biggest Guthrie fan, I do love Wilco and Jeff Tweedy’s vocals hit the spot for me. Also, I would give this world just to dream a dream with my lovely wife in our bed of California stars. 🙂

Some lyrics:

I’d like to dream
My troubles all away
On a bed of California stars

Jump up from my star bed
Make another day
Underneath my California stars

They hang like grapes
On vines that shine
And warm the lovers’ glass
Like friendly wine

So I’d give this world
Just to dream a dream with you
On our bed of California stars
