California Man-Cheap Trick  tabbed by Phil Bacidore

Verse 1:                               A
Goin to a party meet me out after school
           B                                        E
Well we're goin to a place where the jive is really cool
                                                         A
And if the band stops playin there's a juke box down the hall
              B                                  
And with your blue dress on your folks are all gone
                        G   D  E
Sure to give the guys a call 

Chorus:
A                                D                E     
Get that real guitar boy shakin, I'm a California man
A                                          D                E     
We'll slide on till the floors are breakin I'm a California man
B                                   F#                
Well I rocked my mamma so fast that woman she's a makin me mad
B                                   F#      B        E
I don't care if my legs start achin I'm a California man


Short lead riff..ends in E

Verse 2:
Well my legs start to shimmer when I hear you call my name
Well my knees keep a knockin my bow tie's bustin out
When my feet start to fly and my jeans strung way down low
You know I'm back on my heels you're making me feel like the 
king ofRock and roll

                 F#        B      E

I have charted and tabbed this song. Includes vocal melodies/harmonies.

Decent job... although 3 things need correcting, if I may...

Your GDE sequence should be DAE

The I'm a California Man (2) right before the solo should be:
F#BE (1st) & GAE (2nd)

And similar for the outro:

F#BE GAE GAE GAE GG AA EEE E E E_____ E.
