Lyrics:
Well I met her up in Helena
At the state mental hospital
I was put there by a judge, boys
She was put there by the same
Just one look into her green eyes
Catalina she was all mine
She told me of her paradise
Called it Resurrection Bay

Well we both knew we were cured
No matter 'bout the judges word
And on that first day of summer
We made our escape
Yeah running through that June night
With them stars as our only light
She said that every star that falls, boy
Lands in Resurrection Bay

Oh so me and Catalina
Yeah, we hitchhiked to Alaska
All through them drunken forests
Up through that Alcan highway
Made it down to the Kenai
On the fourth of July
Made love under the exploding skies
Of Resurrection Bay

Well Catalina was a strange girl
Not long for this world
Oh why they put her up in Helena
Oh lord, she would not say
She was in love with that water
Like a mother to a daughter
I watched her smiling face go under
From the shores of Resurrection Bay

Now I ain't nothing but a stranger
Moving south through your country
Yeah, I've been eating from your orange grove
And I've been sleeping through your days
Oh at night I watch the black skies
I see them stars go shooting by
I know that every star that falls
Lands in Resurrection Bay
