This white city

 San Francisco Blues
Written in a rocking chair
 In the Cameo Hotel
  San Francisco Skid row
  Nineteen Fifty Four.

This pretty white city
On the other side of the country
 Will no longer be
 Available to me
 I saw heaven move
  Said "This is the End"
  Because I was tired
  of all that portend.

  And any time you need

    I'll be at the other
      at the final hall
