California Bloodlines
by John Stewart

This tab is in G.

Capo 3rd fret to play along with Bb, 4th fret for B and 5th fret for C.

This little signature run –b bb b c b a g, b bb b c b a g, a aa a b a g a g-
can either be played as single notes- or “highlight “ the notes while playing
the g-chord. 

You can either try to copy John´s playing or follow my advice-
I love to play the song a little like John Hartford´s “Gentle on My Mind”
(come on, you know that one). Try it and see what you think. 


Intro

(g) (D9) (g) (D9) (g)


Had (Gj7)I been (G6)born in (G)New York (D9)City,
a New York (D7)City girl I'd (g)know,
Oh, workin' (Gj7)in the (G6)concrete, (G)not the (D9)sunlight,
Livin' in the (D7)New York rain and (G)snow.

Oh, there's California Bloodlines in (D9)my heart,
And a California (D7)woman in my (G)song,
Oh, there's California Bloodlines in (D9)my heart,
And a California (D7)heartbeat in my (G)soul.

And just to (Gj7)think that I (G6)might have (G)never (D9)known you
If I had lived my (D7)life in Tennes(G)see,
But I really (Gj7)could have (G6)never (G)let that (D9)happen,
For you and Cali(D7)fornia are in (G)me.

Oh, there's California Bloodlines in (D9)my heart,
And a California (D7)woman in my (G)song,
Oh, there's California Bloodlines in (D9)my heart,
And a California (D7)heartbeat in my (G)soul.

Have you wondered (Gj7)where we (G6)were ´fore (G)we were (D9)born,
Rollin' 'round the (D7)heavens like a (G)song?
Oh, I know it's (Gj7)then I (G6)saw the (G)big Si(D9)erras,
Saw a California (D7)sunrise comin' (g)on.

There's California Bloodlines in (D9)my heart,
And a California (D7)woman in my (G)song,
There's California Bloodlines in (D9)my heart,
And a California (D7)heartbeat in my (G)soul.

There's California Bloodlines in (D9)my heart,
And a California (D7)woman in my (G)song,
There's California Bloodlines in (D9)my heart,
And a California (D7)heartbeat in my (G)soul.
(D9) (g) (D9) (g)
