After making the California trip, or living there for a while. not everybody wants to stay. These are a few songs about leaving the state, or wanting to leave, taken from the main list of songs that mention California. I'll leave out songs about leaving L.A. (which could be a list in itself) or some other place in the state, unless it appears that the singer is leaving the whole state.
