California by Joey Ryan
--------------------------------------------------------------------
I couldn't find the tab to this song anywhere online, so I decided to make one. 
This is my first tab, but sounds correct to me. Chords came from leonpheltz on 
Youtube; he says to capo 5th fret.
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Chords are a mostly repeated F C Am G, F C Am G C
At certain parts the last Am could be replaced by F, but Am works too.
--------------------------------------------------------------------

F
California, California 

C
Know I love you, California 

Am                                G
When I leave, I know you wait for me 

              F
Cause in the sun and in the weather 

        C
No one else has loved me better 

Am          G                   C
California you're the place for me 

F
Los Angeles, Los Angeles 

C
My heart goes out to you and if 

Am                                  G
I make it back I'd love to drive around 

            F
Cause your streets are wide and dirty 

             C
You'd have raised me in a hurry 

            Am           G              C
You’re the city with the angels, yes indeed 

F
San Francisco, San Francisco 

C
Always busy, you're always pretty 

Am                            G
I can see you just across the bay 

          F
Your red bridge over the sea 

          C
Keeps me safe and warm and free 

      Am                    G               C
On a clear day, there's no place I'd rather be 

F
In the mountains, in the mountains 

C
No one knows you like I do 

     Am                                  G
And summer streams are knee deep in the snow 

      F                            C
Just like the giving tree you have made a man of me 

       Am              G              C
Cause everyone needs someplace beautiful 

        Am              G               C
I think everyone needs someplace beautiful 

F
California, California 

C
Know I love you, California 

Am                               G
When I leave I know you wait for me 

              F
Cause in the sun and in the weather 

        C
No one else has loved me better 

Am          G                   C
California you're the place for me 

F
In the valley, in the valley 

C
Give me life and cradle me 

    Am                          G
The sun is setting as I drive ahead 

    F
So keep us and sustain us 

         C
Give us food and love and I trust 

Am               G                 C
That without you we'd all soon be dead 

F
In the forest, all the trees 

C
You make a little child of me 

Am                                G
How I long to know what you have seen 

         F
All the people who are gone 

             C
And all the ones who once were strong 

    Am                   G                 C
Oh won't you keep their fate from claiming me 

F
In the oceans, in the sea 

C
We have seen eternity 

    Am                          G
How can I tell when you really end 

   F                              C
I imagine that you lead to other worlds entirely 

      Am               G                C
Where we can save ourselves and start again 

       Am/F              G                C
Yes we need to save ourselves and start again 

F
California, California 

Am
Know I love you, California 

Am                               G
When I leave I know you wait for me 

             F
Cause in the sun and in the weather 

        C
No one else has loved me better 

Am          G                   C
California you're the place for me 

    F
So nurse me like a mother 

          C
Raise me strong just like my father 

       Am                         G
Let me wander off, discover who I am 

           F
I'll have learned your deepest lessons 

         C
Gathered up your finest blessings 

Am             G             C
Return to California once again 

               Am/F         G             C
Yes, I'll come home to California once again 

F
California, California 

C
Know I love you, California 

Am                               G
When I leave I know you wait for me 

              F
Cause in the sun and in the weather 

        C
No one else has loved me better 

Am          G                   C
California you're the place for me 

     Am         G                   C
Yes California you're the place for me 

    Am/F              G               C
California won't you save a place for me?
