Tuning: Capo 1

***Note: This is tabbed novice but there are two Bm, you can play the barred Bm, 
or you can play the easy Bm. Since there are only two it doesn't really make a difference.

Intro: Cadd9 D 

Verse 1:
G             Cadd9       D
Met him on the edge of a goodbye
G                          Cadd9          D
I was standing there with nowhere left to fly
C                D
I was young but ever grim
G                D      Cadd9
A little wiser than my time had seen
Am                                     G
You told me about the places we could hide

G                 Cadd9            D
Wild and kinda crazy most of the time
G                 Cadd9           D
My heart was hangin' on his every line
C                D
I'd memorize his every thought
    G         D            Cadd9
But the walls he had could never be brought down
Am               G
And now he's not around 
Am                                  D
I guess I'm just a face left in the crowd

Chorus:
Cadd9     D
Oh, California
G           Cadd9    G D
Please come back to me
Cadd9     D
Oh, California
G          Cadd9   Am
You're who I wanna be
Cadd9   D      G 
Live inside of me

Verse 2:
G               Cadd9           D
A vivid picture plays inside my head
G                       Cadd9       D
Of things you swore we'd never do again
C                 D
Then he put on that LA face 
      G        D      Cadd9
And he left me with a bittersweet taste of life
Am                            D
And that's enough to keep me alive

Chorus:
Cadd9     D
Oh, California
G           Cadd9    G D
Please come back to me
Cadd9     D
Oh, California
G          Cadd9   Am
You're who I wanna be
Cadd9   D      G 
Live inside of me

Bridge:
Bm                  D                Cadd9        G
I know you're lyin' somewhere in the arms of destiny
Bm                      D        
Your memory, it still lingers here
         Cadd9         D
And I'll never set it free, Ohhh (continues into chorus)--

Chorus:
Cadd9           D
--Ohhhh, (California)
G           Cadd9    G D
Please come back to me
Cadd9     D
Oh, California
G          Cadd9   Am
You're who I wanna be
Cadd9   D      Am 
Live inside of me
Cadd9   D      G 
Live inside of me
