Intro:

G D C G

            G
I’d like to rest my heavy head tonight
     D
On a bed of California stars
            C
I’d like to lay my weary bones tonight
     G
On a bed of California stars
            G
I’d love to feel your hand touching mine
            D
And tell me why I must keep working on
         C
Yes, I’d give my life to lay tonight
     G
On a bed of California stars

G D C G


            G
I’d like to dream my troubles all away
     D
On a bed of California stars
C
Jump up from my star bed and make another day
     G
Underneath my california stars
               G
They hang like grapes on vines that shine
               C
And warm the lovers glass like friendly wine
         D
So I’d give this world just to dream a dream with you
       G
On our bed of California stars

G D C G

In the recording they repeat the two verses and then fade out on:

G D C G

Enjoy!

I think your tab is accuate but IMO it sounds best if you capo on II and play the GDC progression; the capo makes it AED.
