                             CALIFORNIA - Ed Prosek
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q1SM1QX0w2c

Tabbed by: Acaran

Tuning: Standard

Capo at: 3rd

#So I've been trying to find tabs of this song for such a long time, that I gave
#up and made them myself. After hours of listening I believe it sounds accurate. 
#It's not original since the original requires two guitars but I tried to make 
#it sound as good as possible...

#But the other instruments kind of make the song what it is so be prepared.
#I might come back later to try to fix or modify some of the duller parts.

Oh your coffee's gone cold in the middle of a northern storm
From the south coast of Britain I don't think you can expect much more
Than a train ride trough the countryside that don't glitter like my home
The way the highway one in the midday sun outlines the sea that shines like go...(ld)"

" - - -
She's a woman, she's a price, so many men have died to own this land
And every line and curve so delicately preserves what sculpted by god's hands
And she'll love you if you're rich, she'll love you if you're poor, she don't care for morals
And if you fall upon your darkest hour you'll be lifted by her wings"

3rd Verse tab = 2nd Verse tab

" - - -
So if you find your love's gone sour just put yourself to sleep
And reminisce on what you've missed since you've fallen to a dream
She may not have the brains or the class but god she's got the looks
And when you wake you'll quickly find California's got you ho...(oked)"

"(ho)...oked, oh ooh"

2nd Chorus = 1st Chorus without the Chorus Ending part.

3rd Chorus = 1st Chorus without the first repetition of the first part and without the Chorus Ending part.

And the last line of singing is not "and drift so peacefully asleep" but
"... It's such a shame this is a dream"

Outro = Bridge
