...CALIFORNIA SOUL... by Marlena Shaw
---------------------................

*from 'Spice of Life' (1969)*


*CAPO 4th FRET*

(Original Key: C#)


Intro:

A  Bm7  C  D, A (n.C)

Verse 1:

       A                            Bm7
Like a sound you hear, that lingers in your ear,
        C                  D          A   Bm7      C  D
But you can't forget, from sundown to sun-set, now.
         A                       Bm7
It's all in the air, you hear it everywhere,
          C                 D            A       Bm7  C
No matter what you do; it's gonna grab a hold on you.
     D      Am   F           E7
Cali-fornia soul, California soul.

Bridge 1:

             B7                  D
They say the sun comes up, every morning now,
           B7                     D
And if you listen, oh, so careful-ly.
    A          Amaj7        D          B7              C#7
The winds that ride, on the high time, whistle in melo-dy.

Chorus 1:

                  A          Amaj7
And so the people started to sing,
                   F#m7                B7
And that's how the surf gave birth, un-told,
              Am   F           A    Bm7  C  D
To California soul, California soul.

Verse 2:

         A                        Bm7
When you hear the beat, you wanna pat your feet,
           C                      D      A             Bm7  C  D
And you've got to move, 'cos it's really such a groove.
       A                          Bm7
Puts a brand new kind of thinkin' in your mind,
        C                           D        A       Bm7   C
And you can't go wrong, 'cos you're groovin' all day long.
     D      Am   F           E7
Cali-fornia soul, California soul.

Bridge 2:

             B7             D
They had the melody and the beat,
       B7                    D
But it still didn't seem com-plete.
               A   Amaj7  D
Until they saw two lovers kissin';
     B7                 C#7
They knew just what was missin'.

Chorus 1:

                    A           Amaj7
So happy they were, rockin' and reelin',
               F#m7              B7
Because they'd added that lovin' feeling.
              Am   F           A    Bm7  C  D
To California soul, California soul.

Coda:

       A                            Bm7         C  D
Like a sound you hear, that lingers in your ear.

Outro:

A  Bm7  C  D

(Repeat to Fade)
