	      B                                  B9 
	Well, East Coast girls are hip, I really dig those styles they wear
	         E
	And the Southern girls with the way they talk 
	              F#
	They knock me out when I'm down there
	     B                                 B9
	The midwest farmers' daughters really make you feel alright
	         E

	                F#
	They keep their boyfriends warm at night

Chorus:

	  B                  C#m7
	I wish they all could be California,
	  A                   Bm7
	I wish they all could be California,
	  G                   Am7           B
	I wish they all could be California Girls

Verse 2:

	The West coast has the sunshine, and the girls all get so tanned
	I dig a French bikini on Hawaiian Island dolls
	By a palm tree in the sand
	I been all around this great big world and I've seen
	      all kinds of girls
	But I couldn't wait to get back in the states,  
	Back to the cutest girls in the world

[repeat chorus]
