CAPO 3

(chords relative to capo)

E 022100
B 024400
C#m 046600
A 002200

Brackets ([ ]) mean the lyrics are sung in the background and are optional.

        E                   B             C#m     A         E
Are you out there where the rainy days begin to feel rather sad
        B                 C#m         A                  E
And the walls are closing in like the darkness around me
           B          C#m                   A            E
It's so hard to look away when the daylight doesn't ever stay
            B               C#m      A                   E
Above this dull apartment view - oh, I will surround you
                 B                   C#m
It's quite clear that I'm stuck here
           A              E         B               C#m          A     E
So I'll devise a plan and cut out a door in my new living room floor
               B             C#m
The porch light is so bright
             A                     E          B                  C#m       A
That I will quickly sneak down the dark metal shape of the rusty fire escape.

C#m        A              E
I bought a one-way ticket
                 B             C#m
Cause I knew I'd never see the ground
               A               E                  B     C#m
Unless I was aboard a jet plane and we were going down.
                 A                 E
When I wiped the tears from my eyes
               B               C#m
The warm water took me by surprise
                A                 E       B
And I woke up beside the ocean and I realized:
E         B
I must be in California.

E, B, C#m, A (x4) [I must be in California]

E         B                C#m            A           E
Aloha, my happy West Coast friends - do you feel alive
          B                C#m      A                   E
When the breaking waves arrive and rush all around you?
               B           C#m                A                    E
The beach homes in Oceanside are quite well-known by the evening tide
             B             C#m            A              E
And we can sleep where we reside with redwoods around us.
            B           C#m            A
The blue air is up there and could I bring it down,
     E         B                    C#m          A
I'd bottle it up and save it for a sweet summer night.

C#m        A              E
I bought a one-way ticket
                 B             C#m
Cause I knew I'd never see the ground
               A               E                  B     C#m
Unless I was aboard a jet plane and we were going down.
                 A                 E
When I wiped the tears from my eyes
               B               C#m
The warm water took me by surprise
                A                 E       C#m
And I woke up beside the ocean and I realized:
E         B
I must be in California.

E  B  C#m  A (x4) [I must be in  California]

   A          E              B       
Am I awake or is this just a dream?

(KEY CHANGE, MOVE CAPO UP TO 5TH FRET)

E           B            C#m
The New Year is out here
           A             E            B
And I will make a lovely list of your charms
                   C#m           A
So I'll never feel alone in your arms.

...I must be in California.

E, B, C#m, B (x8) 
[I must be in California] 
[Oh my dear, I can feel you here]
