I can indeed; the song is called Gold and was sung by John Stewart and Stevie Nicks. The full lyrics to this song are as follows:

"When the lights go down in the California town
People are in for the evening
I jump into my car and I throw in my guitar
My heart beating time with my breathing
Driving over Kanan, singing to my soul
There's people out there turning music into gold

Well my buddy Jim Bass he's a working, pumping gas
And he makes two fifty for an hour
He's got rhythm in his hands as he's tapping on the cans
Sings rock and roll in the shower
Driving over Kanan, singing to my soul
There's people out there turning music into gold

Ah, the California girls are the greatest in the world
Each one's a song in the making
Singing rock to me I can hear the melody
The story is there for the taking
Driving' over Kanan, singing' to my soul
There's people out there turning' music into gold

When the lights go down in the California town
People are in for the evening
I jump into my car and I throw in my guitar
My heart beating time with my breathing
Driving over Kanan, singing to my soul
There's people out there turning music into gold" Song by Jon Stewart and Stevie Nicks (Stewart & Nicks). Lyrics from Oldie Lyrics (www.oldielyrics.com/lyrics/stevie_nicks/gold.html)

Unfortunately Jon Stewart died in 2008 after suffering from a stroke. This was one of his best loved hits and reached number five in the charts in 1979. This song was recorded with Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac.

Ok. As The-sage stated, it was originally written by John Stewart, and was recorded as a duet with Stevie Nicks by John Stuart.
 The title of the song is 'Gold' and you can watch a video of the song here, and the lyrics are:

Gold

When the lights go down

In the California town

People are in for the evening

I jump into my car

And I throw in my guitar

My heart beatin' time with the breathing

Driving over Kanan

Singing to my soul

'Cause people out there turn the music into gold

My buddy Jim Bash

He is working pumping gas

And he makes two fifty for an hour

He's got rhythm in his hands

As he's tapping on the cans

Sings rock and roll in the shower

California girls are the greatest in the world

Each one a song in the making

Singin' rhymes with me, I can hear the melody

Story is there for the taking

Driving over Kanan

Singing to my soul

'Cause people out there turn the music into gold

I hope that's everything you were looking for... Have a great day.
