Shawn Mullins 2010 from Light You Up

Keys:

C (with majorized 2nd)
G mixo, switching at "(Trans) Am", "101", "Room",
        through bridge
no capo
driving 4/4 strum, smooth and steady,
follow the high-hat

(intro melody)

Verse 1

Am              C            G
   Well, he was from a small town
      D                    
   In Northern Mississippi
Am         C                   G
   She was raised on the Puget Sound
   D
   A third generation hippie
Am            C                 G
   Fate would take them to L.A. County
               D                  F
   And get 'em stuck in a traffic jam
                                D7
   An El Camino and a red Trans Am

Am  C  G   D

Verse 2

Am          C             G
   Her stereo was blaring Dylan
       D
   The Bootleg Sessions
Am              C                G
   And, oh, The Times They Are A'Changin'
          D
   Made a pretty good impression
Am            C                   G
   She looked over and caught him smilin'
           D                  F
   Under a California setting sun
                            D7
   They fell in love on the 101


Chorus:

Am     G       D     F
   California,   California
Am     G                  D
   California dreams come true


Verse 3

Am                C           G
   Well, they got in with the In-crowd
           D                   Am
   And got off on the rock 'n' roll
             C                    G
   Cocaine's free and the music's loud
       D                      Am
   Backstage at the Hollywood Bowl
                C                G
   They got the house in Topanga Canyon
        D                    F
   They partied at the Viper Room
                          D7
   Blendin' into the neon gloom


Chorus (2X)


Bridge:

             F
   Well, you see them down on the Sunset Strip
   G
   Trying so hard to be so hip
      F
   Manhattan Beach to Malibu
        G
   It's all about the ocean view
       F
   And who you know in Hollywood
        G
   It's cut-throat but it's understood
F
   Champagne, Kool-Aid, drink it down
   D7
   You're the toast of Tinsel Town…


Chorus (2X)


(guitar solo through repeats of the Am  C  G   D cadence)
