This is my first tab but I think it sounds pretty good (:

I was driving, driving, driving down the 101

Singing California Dreaming at the top of my lungs

   A                             D
Unaware, Not a care and then he appeared.

Thought he was winding down his window just to say hello

But he started cussing at me saying I'm going too slow

       A                                   D
Then he yelled, Go to hell and flipped me the bird.

Is it really that bad? Really that bad?

I don't think it's really that bad

Come on, get with it.

If you only think of things that you haven't got

You could have it all and still never have enough

    Em             G
So don't worry, be happy.

And if you're trying to make a move but you're stuck in mud

Underwater and you don't know which ways up

     Em           G
Don't worry, be happy.

Another day, Another plane, Another interview
Just trying hard to get through my list of things to do.
What's the Use? 
Might fake the flu cause I've had enough.

That's it screw the low carbs, where's my KFC?
Ain't gonna think about the bills or the GFC
Life is short, live it up cause we live it once.



      Em                                     G
Yeah life is short, we on-ly get to live it once

So live, and love and give it all you've got.

Yeah life is short, we only live it once,

So live it up.      X2

This is not criticism mate. At least you had a go and offered a contribution. I have given many over the years myself. Just a few pointers.Pretty good effort on your part. I actually teach this song to my guitar students. Just a few things you need to add which I will leave to you to do as you have done most of the work.
Let me just say that this is the closest tab by far. The other 3 on this site are crap (despite the stars :). So here we go. First thing;

* Let everyone know that to play along to the recording of this song they need to put a capo on the first fret.

* Intro. Based over D chord only. Scratch D, D SUS (lift 2nd finger off E string), D, then Dadd9 (I think it is called) (put your pinky on the E string whilst still playing the D chord). So D, Dsus, D, Dadd9.

* In the verse, over the lyric 'not a care', you always play a G chord.

* Pre chorus is fine.

* Chorus, over the words " YOU COULD HAVE" (2nd line)you play Bm. So there are 4 chords always in the chorus.

* For your bridge (sorry mate but you are way off) I would be playing Bm, a quick A,then D. It is mostly BM and D except a quick A everytime Guy sings the word LIVE on the first line, then a quick A again over the word "GIVE" on the 2nd line and you go back to Bm on the word "GOT". Then repeat.

* Over "really that bad" I scratch BM then G.

* Remainder of song play chorus.

Hope that helps.

Sorry guys.
* Over "really that bad" I actually scratch a bar of Em and then half G, half A. That A is not the chord but it goes along with Guys voice and therefore works.
