[Intro]
 G Em D Em* C

[Verse]
G                                      Em
Why's everyone still singing about California?
D*                     Em                C*       
Haven't we heard enough about the Golden State? 
  G                                              Em
I guess if you like sandy beaches and blue ocean water 
             D*                 Em                   C*                  
There's just something about it, to which I cannot relate 
  G                                                  Em
I need to see the leaves change and the snowflakes falling 
  D*                              Em                           C*
I need to hear the call, the wind whistling through the winter pines 

[Chorus]
D*                   A7                Em
Why's everyone still singing about California?
A7               G                       C* 
Haven't we heard enough about the Golden State?
    D*                        Em                   C*
And people still follow their dreams to sweet California
          Am                          G                 C
And from time to time I’ll pass on by, but I will never stay 

[Verse]
G                                                    Em
Sure there are beautiful people, in the city of lost angels
        D*                                  Em                C*              
They're living like they're kings and queens, from some royal age 
    G                                         Em
But fortune and fame won't save you, when California
   D*                           Em               C*  
Is wiped out by the ring of fire or a great earthquake 

[Chorus]
D*                   A7                Em
Why's everyone still singing about California?
A7               G                       C* 
Haven't we heard enough about the Golden State?
    D*                        Em                   C*
And people still follow their dreams to sweet California
          Am                          G                 C
And from time to time I’ll pass on by, but I will never stay 

[Outro]
                G
No I will never stay
C* G
C*    G
Never stay
C* G
C*    G
Never stay

Thanks for the chord tab! Sounds great. Only correction, is that the A7 in the verse is definitely an Am7. The chord diagram is still correct though.
