Verse 1:

Fm 
I was making Japanese
Cm
And she's watching DVDs
Ab          Bb
In Oakland, in Oakland
Fm
Now I'm driving up the 5
Cm
And she waits till I arrive
Ab          Bb
In Oakland, in Oakland
Fm          
Everything, that I wanted
Cm
Only gotta drive for the moment
Ab    
If you tell me "turn around," then I'm on it
Gm
For the moment, but you know me
Bb
You know how I get when I'm lonely
Eb 
I think about you and the moments
Cm                                   Gm
But everything you do is so Oakland, so Oakland

Chorus:

Fm
Foot on the gas
Cm
I'm just trying to pass
Ab
All the red lights
Gm
And the stop signs
Ab
I'm ready to go
Cm
Before I get to The Bay, Babe, that's a problem
Ab
Because I'm way too scared to call
Gm
And you might get me to stay, no

Verse 2: 

Fm
I don't really want to drive
Cm
But I think I'd rather die
Ab          Gm
In Oakland, in Oakland
Fm
With my hands on two and ten
Cm
So I guess it all depends
Ab          Gm
On Oakland, on Oakland
Fm
And I'm nervous, truth be told
Cm
I never saw me growing old
Ab          Gm
In Oakland, in Oakland
Fm
And if I married you tonight
Cm
It would probably start a riot
Ab          Gm
In Oakland, in Oakland

Verse 3: 

Fm
Everything, that I needed
Cm
Now I finally got you in your feelings
Ab
Everything you won't say, you tweet it
Gm                               Bb
And a nigga don’t like that shit at all
Bb
So retreating
Cm
Can we just roll with the feeling?
Ab
Can we just roll for a minute?
Gm
Wait a minute

Chorus 2:

Fm
Foot on the gas
Cm
I'm just trying to pass
Ab
All the red lights
Gm
And the stop signs
Ab
I'm ready to go
Cm
And I'm really not ready girl, that's a problem
Ab
Because I'm way too scared to call
Gm
And you might get me to stay, no

Try once and it's on to the next chick

And we can do the same

And you wanna be a mom and I wasn't mad at her
                     Gm              
I was thinking 'bout me, I'd be really bad at it

Cause I'm thinking 'bout me, weeks in Dubai

And if I left you all alone,

It's iffy, you miss me

In Oakland, in Oakland

The only one I know is you,

Ab          Gm
In Oakland, in Oakland [x8]
