If you have any comments, suggestions or sompliments, I'd like to hear it, because I'm just a beginning guitar player and don't mind to learn from my faults, well, here comes the song:

Californication

Repeat 2x
--->drums enter

Play riff during all couplets

[Am] Psychic spies from China
Try to [F] steal your mind's elation
[Am] Little girls from Sweden
Dream of [F] silver screen quotations
And [C] if you want these [G] kind of dreams
It's [F] Californi [Dm] cation

Main riff / Chords [Am F] 2x

It's the [Am] edge of the world
And all of [F] western civilization
The [Am] sun may rise in the East
At least it [F] settles in the final location
It's [C] understood that [G] Hollywood
Sells [F] Californi [Dm] cation

Chords 2x

[Am] Pay your surgeon very well
To [F] break the spell of aging
Ce [Am] lebrity skin is this your chin
Or [F] is that war your waging

Chorus:
[Am] First born uni [F] corn
[Am] Hard core soft [F] porn
[C] Dream of Cali [G] forni [F] cation
[C] Dream of Cali [G] forni [Dm] cation

2x Main Riff / Chords

[Am] Marry me girl be my fairy to the world
Be my [F] very own constellation
A [Am] teenage bride with a baby inside
Getting [F] high on information
And [C] buy me a star on the [G] boulevard
It's [F] Californi [Dm] cation

2x Main Riff/ Chords

[Am] Space may be the final frontier
But it's [F] made in a Hollywood basement
[Am] Cobain can you hear the spheres
Singing [F] songs off station to station
And [C] Alderon's not [G] far away
It's [F] Californi [Dm] cation

2x Chords

[Am] Born and raised by those who praise
Con [F] trol of population [Am] everybody's been here and
I [F] don't mean on vacation

[Am] Destruction leads to a very rough road
But it [F] also breeds creation
And [Am] earthquakes are to a girl's guitar
They're [F] just another good vibration
And [C] tidal waves couldn't [G] save the world 
From [F] Californi [Dm] cation

Chords 2x

[Am] Pay your surgeon very well
To [F] break the spell of aging
[Am] Sicker than the rest
