[Intro]

G, Em, D, Em*, C


[Verse 1]

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 2]

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
