                              "Surf City"
                       (Jan Berry - Brian Wilson)

Intro (acapella):

	[B            E F#] Eb
	Two girls for every boy

Verse 1:

	            Ab                      Fm
	I bought a '30 Ford wagon and we call it a woodie
	(Surf City, here we come)
	               Ab                       Fm
	You know it's not very cherry, it's an oldie but a goodie
	  Ab         Fm
	(Surf City, here we come)
	         Db                        Bbm
	Well, it ain't got a back set or a rear window
	Gb                            Eb
	But it still gets me where I wanna go


	And we're goin' to Surf City, 'cause it's two to one
	You know we're goin' to Surf City, gonna have some fun
	You know we're goin' to Surf City, 'cause it's two to one
	You know we're goin' to Surf City, gonna have some fun, now

	 B             E F# [1, 2: Eb;   3: to coda]
	Two girls for every        boy

Verse 2:

	You know they never roll the streets up 'cause there's always
		somethin' goin
	(Surf City, here we come)
	You know they're either out surfin' or they got a party growin'
	(Surf City, here we come)
	Yeah, and there's two swingin' honeys for every guy
	And all you gotta do is just wink your eye

[repeat chorus]

Verse 3:

	And if my woody breaks down on me somewhere on the surf route
	(Surf City, here we come)
	I'll strap my board to my back and hitch a ride in my wetsuit
	(Surf City, here we come)
	And when I get to Surf City I'll be shootin' the curl
	And checkin' out the parties for a surfer girl [hold Eb extra bar]

[repeat chorus]


	 C             F G    C [to fade]
	Two girls for every  boy
