“California Bloodlines” is one of John Stewart’s most popular songs. Recorded in Nashville and first released in 1969, the song’s title implies historical roots, but that is not the case. “California Bloodlines” speaks of Stewart’s emotional and spiritual ties to the State and he had many being born, raised, and married to a woman who also had deep emotional and spiritual roots to California. Native-born Californians at first glance may appear to be the only audience the song resonates with, but that is also not the case, for it speaks to people who have deep emotional and spiritual ties to any place they call home, even if they were not born in the State nor ever set foot in it.
