It’s a very inspiring song, I used to listen to it in country pub in England, when I was teenager in the 1970s.
It conjured up images of what was probably a stereo-type California — full of hippies thumbing cars down,with guitars on their backs, dusty boots as a Cadillac, peace signs instead of road signs and so on.
I followed my dreams too, one step at a time, always leading to something new and wonderful. Can’t complain about my 59 years on the planet.
Thanks for sharing your journey.
