Verse D Sitting in a park in Paris France G Em Reading the news and it sure looks bad They won't give peace a chance A That was just a dream some of us had D Still a lot of lands to see G But I wouldn't want to stay here Em A It's too old and cold and settled in its ways here Chorus Em Oh but California D Bm California I'm coming home Em I'm going to see the folks I dig G A I'll even kiss a Sunset pig D California I'm coming home Verse I met a redneck on a Grecian isle Who did the goat dance very well He gave me back my smile But he kept my camera to sell Oh the rogue the red red rogue He cooked good omelettes and stews And I might have stayed on with him there But my heart cried out for you California Chorus Oh California I'm coming home Oh make me feel good rock 'n' roll band I'm your biggest fan California I'm coming home Bridge Em G Oh it gets so lonely when you're walking D A And the streets are full of strangers Em All the news of home you read E Just gives you the blues A Just gives you the blues Verse So I bought me a ticket I caught a plane to Spain Went to a party down a red dirt road There were lots of pretty people there Reading Rolling Stone reading Vogue They said "How long can you hang around?" I said a week maybe two Just until my skin turns brown Then I'm going home to California Chorus California I'm coming home Oh will you take me as I am Strung out on another man California I'm coming home Bridge/Outro Em G Oh it gets so lonely when you're walking D A And the streets are full of strangers Em G All the news of home you read D More about the war A And the bloody changes E G Oh will you take me as I am? D Will you take me as I am? A Will you? I'll update it with some of the more fiddly bits when I have the time, but this is the basic gist of it. Enjoy :)
