In terms of strumming pattern, the easiest way is to strum each chord downward
four times with a palm slap between each downward stroke, e.g. for the first
chord Bm, it would be:
E|-2-x-2-x-2-x-2-x|
B|-3-x-3-x-3-x-3-x|
G|-4-x-4-x-4-x-4-x|
D|-4-x-4-x-4-x-4-x|
A|-2-x-2-x-2-x-2-x|
E|---x-------x---x|

Intro:

Bm      D
How do I get out of here?
A             E
Back to where I belong
Bm          D           A               E
California, California, baby I'm coming home


Verse:

Bm (just strum once)
I need some fun vibes and a couple drops of sunshine
D
Good enough pick and choose the always over sometimes 
A
Pour a little out we like to live a lot
E
And I make better decisions when I'm hot 
Bm
We're chasing dreams from our seats at the hang out spot
D
No plan for the night, but we all stay locked 
A
Right in, nice grin, uh uhhh no thunder or lightning
E
Just the view of the ocean and a sexy ass light skin girl
Bm
I'm goin back, I'm goin back
D
And I'm headed for my paradise, my paradise
A                                E
Where I can sit and right songs, eat a little food and we can share our lives 
Bm
California got me thinking I should really take it easy
D
Out back with my crew and some girls if you need me 
A
So when I say welcome home and you ask what do I mean
*** no guitar ***
I mean you visit and you never wanna leave Come find me


Chorus:

Bm      D
How do I get out of here?
A             E
Back to where I belong
Bm          D           A        E
California, California, baby I'm coming home


Verse:

Bm (just strum once)
So sweet, so sweet Californ-I-a 
D
Where the fruits all fall from my family tree
A
I need my skateboard a drink and a long stretch of pavement
E
Pickin up my pace and I'm back to the basics
Bm
Yeah, travel well on my element 
D                                        A
Gone for a second and every time I leave you know I'm always second guessing it
                            E
Thinking ill regret it but you know I'm comin back in the end and I've accepted it
Bm                                  D
I'm feeling feeling all feeling all feeling all feeling all golden
                    A
We're skatin on the sidewalk 
                                    E
And you can hear us all hear us all hear us all rollin 
Bm
It's so damn hot outside 
A
And missed flights are the only things that stoppin me from tryin to kick it tropically
D
Cuz out here we don't just own the sun
E
Us California kids got a monopoly 
Lets go, come on


Chorus:

Bm      D
How do I get out of here?
A             E
Back to where I belong
Bm          D           A        E
California, California, baby I'm coming home

*** At this point, the guitar stops playing ***


I'm coming home I'm coming home
Cuz I been gone for way too long
I'm coming home I'm coming home
Cuz I been gone for way too long

*** At this point, guitar resumes, but Alex changes from barre chords to open chords of Bm, D, A, E) ***

Bm
And these Cali girls Cali girls Cali girls Cali girls

A
And these Cali girls Cali girls Cali girls Cali girls
