This song is by Brett Dennen and appears on the album Hope For The Hopeless (2008) and on the Live EP Live Sessions (ITunes Exclusive) (2009).

Go if you want to go
But I won't follow, just so you know
Be if you want to leave
But I won't be here when you come home

I'm gonna move to San Francisco
Look up some old friends
I'm gonna get me a Navy P-coat
And an old Mercedes Benz

This old town keeps shrinking
There's too many people in my junk
I'm gonna do a lot of drinking
'Cause it don't hurt when I'm drunk

Go if you want to go
But I won't follow, just so you know
Be if you want to leave
But I won't be here when you come home

I'm gonna rent me an old Victorian
Down in the Lower Haight
I'm gonna get me an old accordion
And play for the tourists on the Golden Gate

I'm gonna plant a little garden
Paint my bathroom blue
I'm gonna try real hard
To get over you

Here in the city, life it don't move so slow
There's plenty of good people I know
Up in North Beach they drink spicy Italian liqueur
Down on Market there's a lot of hobos and hustlers

Down in Hayes Valley there's a lot of good restaurants
Deep in the Tenderloin you can have anything you want
Over in the Mission it's always a sunny day
And it's a real good baseball town, but my team is across the Bay

Go if you want to go
But I won't follow, just so you know
Be if you want to be
But I won't be here when you come home

When you come home
