California

	  		E                            A                                      F# 
Sitting in a park in Paris France  reading the news and it sure looks bad 
                           B                                        E 
They won't give peace a chance, that was just a dream some of us had 
E             A                                  F# 
Stole a lot of lines to sing but I wouldn't want to stay here 
                    B                      A 
It's too old and cold and settled in its ways here 
 A        (Asus4)       E    C# 
Ah but California, California I'm coming home 
A                            E                         B 
I'm gonna see the folks I dig, I'll even kiss a sunset pig 
    Bsus4              E 
California I'm coming home 

E E/A E Esus4 E Esus4 E 

E                            A                                      F# 
I met a redneck on a Grecian isle, we did the goat dance very well 
            B                                        E 
He gave me back my smile but he kept my camera to sell 
E             A                                  F# 
Oh the rogue, the red red rogue, he cooked good omelettes and stews 
                    B                      A 
And I might have stayed on with him there, but my heart cried out for you 
 A        (Asus4)       E    C# 
California, Oh California I'm coming home 
A                            E                         B 
Oh make me feel good rock and roll band, I'm your biggest fan 
 Bsus4              E 
California I'm coming home   RIFF 

Bridge: 
E            F#      A                     E                              B 
Oh it gets so lonely   When you're walking     and the streets are full of strangers 
                 F#        A                    B D 
All the news of home you read just give you the blues 
                  B     Bsus4    A  Asus4 A  B  E  like intro  Esus4 E Esus4 E 
Just give you the blues 

E                            A               F# 
So I bought me a ticket I caught a plane to Spain 
            B                       E 
Went to a party down a red dirt road 
E             A                                  F# 
There were lots of pretty people there, reading Rolling Stone reading Vogue 
                    B                      A 
They said how long can you hang around, I said a week maybe two 
Just until my skin turns brown and then I'm going home 
A        (Asus4)       E    C# 
To California, California, I'm coming home 
A                            E                         B 
Oh, will you take me as I am, strung out on another man 
 Bsus4              E 
California I'm coming home   RIFF 

BRIDGE #2: 
E              F#    A                     E                              B 
Oh it gets so lonely    when you're walking    and the streets are full of strangers 
                F#        A                    E                B 
All the news of home you read, more about the war and the bloody changes 
 F#                      A                         E 
Oh will you take me as I am, will you take me as I am 
        B                      F#  A 
Will you, will you take me as I am 
             E         B               F#    A   E  B
