[Intro]
F  /D /Eb /E

[Verse 1]
F                                      Gm
No I don't think it's odd to stand before god 
    C7                         Bb          F
And solemnly swear when there's love in the air
F                                                   Gm
And I don't think it's weird when the one thing you fear
   C7                          Bb          F       Fm7
Is losing the one thing that's holding you dear

[Chorus]
       Bb                                C7
Well I don't think it's strange, I don't think it's insane 
             G
It turns the world around
          C7
While the birds keep singing, and the bells keep ringin',

And the heart keeps bringin' you home   
       F                      Bb  F
To California, where the warm sun shines
                          Bb   F
California, hear the windblown chimes
        /F# Gm                  C7                      F
Californ-i-a, though you're far away, your love is here today

F  /D /Eb /E

[Verse 2]
F                                            Gm
True love in you heart, like a flame in the dark
C7                               Bb           F
May you have, may you hold, 'til death do you part
F                                      Gm
'Cause two of a kind, it ain't easy to find
       C7                     Bb          F       Fm7
Comin' out of the blue, being lead by the blind

[Chorus]
         Bb                    C7
It don't take much to see that what's meant to be
            G
Is right in front of me
        C7
And the birds keep singing, and the bells keep ringin',

And the heart keeps bringin' you home
       F                      Bb  F
To California, where the warm sun shines
                          Bb   F
California, hear the windblown chimes
        /F# Gm                  C7                      F
Californ-i-a, though you're far away, your love is here today

[Outro]
Am                   Dm
  We're sittin' on a real celebration
Am                     Dm
  Thank heavens what a fine situation
G7
  Shoot the cannon, blow the horn
                    C7  F
Love is born in California

Most of it is good, but it could be improved. First, it should be tuned a full step down. Second, at the start of the chorus, it should go Bb, Eb7, Abm. Third, the Fm7 at the end of the verse should be G with Eb in the bass. Finally, the F# in the third California in the chorus should be a C diminished. Please update because this is a great song. Thank you for writing the tab in the first place!
