Greetings loved ones, let’s take a journey


F#m G              A Bm
I     know a place
          F#m              G      A Bm
Where the grass is really greener
F#m   G              A Bm
Warm,   wet and wild
              F#m               G    A Bm
There must be something in the water
F#m     G               A Bm
Sipping,  gin and juice
       F#m             G         A Bm
Laying underneath the palm trees
    F#m   G                   A Bm
The boys,   break their necks
          F#m             G         A    Bm
Trying to creep a little sneak peek,  at us

Bridge:
A                    Bm
You could travel the world
    G
But nothing comes close to the golden coast
A                   Bm
Once you party with us
          G
You’ll be falling in love oh  ohohohohoh

Chorus:
D/F# G            A           Bm
Cali-fornia girls, we’re unforgettable
D/F#  G        A        Bm
Daisy Dukes, bikinis on top
D/F#       G        A                   Bm
Sun-kissed skin, so hot we'll melt your popsicle
D/F#     G     A        Bm
  Ohohohohoh,  oh  ohohohohoh

D/F#  G                  A   Bm
Cali-fornia girls, we’re undeniable
D/F#          G                A  Bm
Fine, fresh, fierce, we got it on lock
D/F#       G         A        Bm
West coast represent, now put your hands up
D/F#     G     A        Bm
  Ohohohohoh,  oh  Ohohohohoh

F#m  G           A Bm
Sex   on a beach 
       F#m         G         A Bm
We get sand in our stilettos
   F#m    G            A Bm
We freak    in my jeep 
            F#m     G         A Bm
Snoop Doggy Dogg on the stereo

Bridge
Chorus


Toned, tan, fit and ready, turn it up cause its gettin’ heavy
Wild wild west coast, these are the girls I love the most
I mean the ones, I mean like she’s the one, kiss her, touch her, squeeze her buns
The girls a freak, she drives a jeep the men on the beach,
I’m okay, I won’t play, I love the bay Just like I love LA
Venice Beach and Palm Springs summer time is everything
Come on boys, hanging out all that ass hanging out
Bikinis, tankinis, martinis, no weenies just to get in betweeny
Katy my lady (yeah) you looking here baby (uh huh)
I’m all up on you cause you representing California

Chorus

California girls man
I wish they all could be California girls
I wish they all could be California girls
There’s only a few children who do what we do

Chorus sounds better with F instead of Am.
Am also sounds a bit off in the verses, but I can't figure out a better note.
thanks for posting! :)

I disagree with cocalola.
You can clearly hear it's Am and not F.
To me the chords in this tab look/sound very simular to the song.

I'm sorry, but I'm confused at this:

Capo 3 -> Transpose Down 3 Half Steps
Capo 5 -> Transpose Down 5 Half Steps

I want to post or [tab]
