West Coast

Capo on 1st fret

Intro: Em, G, Am, Em 

I'm from a different type of left land 
G        Am 
Old Wild West land 
Nosebleeds, palms trees, and tumble weeds rustling 
Em                          G               Am 
Outside they say it's happy here but it's depressing 
To many pretty face catching my attention 
     Em                     G           Am 
So I look at them, remind myself in the smudged glass 
That pretty isn't everything, you punk ass 
Always hard to see past the surface 
        G        Am 
When it looks so perfect 
        Em        Am               Em 
But her eyes will disguise dirt on purpose 

You listening? 
Em             G         Am 
I grew up here under the sun 
In grade school I was the odd one out of the bunch 
            Em                        G        Am 
And I don't mean I was the kid to eat bugs for lunch 
          Em                               Am           Em 
I was the one who wasn't coming from where their coming from 
Em                     G              Am     
I speak poetically and never pride my ignorance 
But this California shit is rigorous 
              Em                       G    
They say it's happy here, happiness is figurative 
    Am             Em         
I'm happy cause of me doesn't matter where I'm living 

Em G Am Em If the sun was god I'd be covered in faith Em G Am Em If the ocean was the devil I'd be covered in hate G Am Em I'm so west coast, it's a god damn shame (x2)
VERSE Em G Am I'm waking up underneath sheets, naked, still sweating Em Slept in late so everybody else is ready Em G Am Em My friend called up he said "Hurry up, Buddy, it's almost sun down already". Em So I hopped up G I went and washed up Am Em I ate some pasta then I gave my mom hugs Em G Am Then I thought uh it's gonna be a pretty nice night Em Am Em But pretty isn't everything right? Em Golden state mind G I'm taking my time Am Em Plain white shirt and a skinny black tie Em G My top let down when I get picked up Am Em P.C.H so California Em Maybe they were right G Am Happiness is a warm gun Em But before you shoot please warn us Am Life is too fun California will you marry me? Am Let god be the sun Em And then the ocean they shall bury me
Em G Am Em If the sun was god I'd be covered in faith Em G Am Em If the ocean was the devil I'd be covered in hate G Am Em I'm so west coast it's a god damn shame (x4)
