I was born in Texas raised in Arkansas
I was born in Texas left home I heard the call
I come to California for honey, milk, and gold
Sometimes they would warn ya to do what you've been told                            G
But if you don't or if you do you'll find yourself somewhere and you won't have a clue

G
I met you in Palestine

The heart break high school beauty queen
Em
You were 21 I was 18
         G
Hey you had my heart when I heard you sing
C
 Never thought I'd see you again
                                G
Well here I am just by coincidence

Chorus:
C           G
Texas, Arkansas
    D               Em
California, here we are
          C             G
How ever long, how ever far
     D              G
California, here we are

G
We came here to be unique

but when we look around we see
Em
Different versions of ourselves
G
Sippin' tea with someone else
       C                                                                                                  G
This promise land was broken and the words that had been spoken can't be taken back so we'll stay here awhile


Chorus

G
I reckon I will go back home eventually but I don't know
    Em
How long it takes to get things done
   G
You had a plan now you've got none
    C
You wonder what you do back there

and wonder what you're doing here
             C7                             G 
Sometimes you leave just so you can't go back


Chorus

     C                                                                G
The mocking birds are squawking words in minor 3rds about our major flaws
      C
Dog wood and the pecan trees are losing leaves conceding one dream
C(3rd fret, not bar chord, open 'g'string)
Soo

Chorus (x2)
D
Californiaa, Californiaaa, Californiaaaaaa, here we are


G
