this is any of the bits that require picking.
    for : 
      the first bar is for the fist lines of the verse.
      You'll probably recognise where the second bit comes in - on the last
      two lines.

     Am                 F              C        G       F
  |-----------------------------|---------------------------|
  |---------0-1-----------------|---------5-----------------|
  |----------------------0-2----|------------------4------2-|
  |---2-------------------------|-------5-------------------|
  |-0------------------3--------|-----3----------5------3---|
  |------------------1----------|---------------3------1----|

  needed chords are:
    Am F   C  G  F  Am
  |-0----|-3--3--1--0-|
  |-1----|-5--3--1--1-|
  |-2----|-5--4--2--2-|
  |-2--3-|-5--5--3--2-|
  |-0--3-|-3--5--3--0-|
  |----1-|----3--1----|

  i use F the abbriviated way fist time round cos its easier
  if you can manage full F then do.
   
  n e way:
                 
  Pick this bit
 ( Am
  Phycic spies from china
         F
  Try to steal your mind's elation        
  Am              
  Little girls from sweeden 
           F           
  Dream of silver screen quotations 
  C                     G            
  And if you want these kind of dreams
  F
  It's californication.


  Am
  It's the end of the world
             F        
  And all of western civilisation
  Am
  The sun may rise in the East
              F
  At least it settles in a final location
  C                    G
  It's understood that Hollywood
         F
  Sell's Californication)
                              start strumming straight after californication
  Am
  Pay your Surgeon very well
     F
  To break the spell of aging
  Am
  Celebraty skin is this your chin
        F
  Or is it that war your waging.
 

         Chorus : 
                  Am         F
                  First born unicorn
                  Am             F
                  Hard core soft porn
                  C            G    F
                  Dream of californication
                  C            G    F
                  Dream of californication

  start picking again

  Am
  Marry me girl be my fairy to the world
        F
  Be my very own constellation
  Am
  A tenage bride with a baby inside
          F
  getting high on information
  C                          G
  And buy me a star from the boulevard
       F  
  It's californication
 
  Am
  Space may be the final frontier
           F
  But it's made in a Hollywood basement
  Am
  Cobain can you hear the spheres
          F
  Singing song from station to station 
  C                  G             F    
  And alderaan's not far away it's californication

  Am
  Born and raised by those who praise
      F                 Am
  control of population everybody's been there and
      F 
  i don't mean on vacation


  Chorus
  ------

   Now comes the solo i've only tabbed the top three strings as these 
   are all you need. 
 
   
   e|----9----------9^-------------------------
   B|-10---9\7--10---7--7-7p5---------5-7^-5---
   G|------------------------6-6--4-6--------6-

   e----9-12-14-----9-12-14^-17-16-14-12-14-12----12----
   B-10----------10----------------------------14----14-
   G----------------------------------------------------

   e----------12----14^-12----12----------12-10-9-----|
   B-14-14-14----14--------14----14-12-10---------10--|
   G--------------------------------------------------|

      this bit returns to picking.

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

  Am
  Pay your surgeon very well
     F
  To break the spell of aging
  Am
  Sicker than the rest There is no test  
      F
  But this is what your craving
