King of California
Dave Alvin

C                                     C/G
Well, I left my home and my one true love
C           G/add4b   Am7
East of the Ohio River
C                                     C/G
My father said we'd never wed
C          G/add4b            Am7
For I had me no gold nor silver


  Em           Fadd9
But my darling dear, please shed no tears
 C           G/add4b         Am7
But I think that it's fair to warn you
 Fadd9       C       G/add4b   Am7
That I return to claim your hand
  Em           Fadd9      C
As the King of California


C                                     C/G
Over deserts hot and mountains cold
C           G/add4b   Am7
I traveled the Indian country
C                                     C/G
Whispering your name under lonesome skies
C           G/add4b   Am7
Remembering my only company


Em                          Fadd9
But my darling dear, have no fears
 C           G/add4b         Am7
But I think that it's fair to warn you
 Fadd9       C       G/add4b   Am7
That I return to claim your hand
  Em           F/add9      C
As the King of California


C                                     C/G
I went up from Sacramento town
C           G/add4b   Am7
To the Sierra gold fields
C                                     C/G
And I worked my stake on a riverbank
C           G/add4b   Am7
Dreaming just how a rich man feels


Em                   Fadd9
But my darling dear, listen here
 C           G/add4b         Am7
But I think that it's fair to warn you
 Fadd9       C       G/add4b   Am7
That I return to claim your hand
  Em           Fadd9      C
As the King of California


 C                                     C/G
Now, the dead man's lying at my feet
C           G/add4b   Am7
Who tried to steal my earnings
 C                                     C/G
Yet, I still recall your tender kiss
C           G/add4b   Am7
Though this bullet in my chest is burning


Em           Fadd9
But my darling dear, please have no fear
 C           G/add4b         Am7
But I think that it's fair to warn you
 Fadd9       C       G/add4b   Am7
That I return to claim your hand
  Em           Fadd9      C
As the King of California


 Fadd9       C       G/add4b   Am7
But I'll I return to claim your hand
   Em           Fadd9      C
As the King of California
