Verse:
You are talk - ing of Heav - en,
When you talk of the West.
As a sam - ple of Heav - en,
Ca - li - for - nia is best.
I'm get - ting fed up on the rain and snow.
My wea - ry heart is sing - ing "West - ward Ho".
Pull - ing out at e - lev - en,
For a rose - cov - ered nest.  Oh!

Chorus:
Gold - en Gate,  I'm com - in' to "ya",
Gold - en Gate, Sing "Hal - le - lu - jah".
I'll live in the sun,  Love in the moon,
Where ev - 'ry month is June.
A lit - tle sun - kissed blonde, Is smil - in' my way.
Just be - yond,  The Lin - coln High - way.
Go - ing strong now it won't be long now.
Op - en up that Gold - en Gate.
