[Intro]
Am C (Walk up to C)

[Verse]
Am
You tried to drown your sorrows
                   C 
You shouldn't have taught them how to swim
                F     C    G            Am
And now you are right back where you began 
Am
Winter sky's approaching 
      C
All along in the wasteland
             F C  G
Alone is the only way
                  C
That they let you in
 
[Chorus] 
                Am
So drink all my wine 
           F
Cut all my trees 
                C
Make love on my beaches 
             G
Smoke all my weed 
          Am
I am california
          F
Can't you see
             C
Wherever you roam
       G           C
You'll always want me

C Am

[Verse]
Am
We struggle with our lovers
               C
We don't know what to let in 
          F   C    G                    Am
'Cause the new ones pay for the old ones sins
Am
Blinded by your shadows
C
Fainted on your love
                   F    C   G
You don't know how deep you are
                         C
Till' you get pulled back up 

[Chorus] 
                Am
So drink all my wine 
           F
Cut all my trees 
                C
Make love on my beaches 
             G
Smoke all my weed 
         Am
I am california
          F
Can't you see
             C
Wherever you roam
              G    C
you'll always want me

Am C F C G (x2 [End on C 2nd time])

[Chorus] 
                Am
So drink all my wine 
           F
Cut all my trees 
                C
Make love on my beaches 
             G
Smoke all my weed 
         Am
I am california
          F
Can't you see
             C
Wherever you roam
          G        C
you'll always want me
                Am
Yeah dig all my gold 
                F
Soak in my springs
           C
Conquer my mountains 
                   G
If that's what you need
         Am               F
I am California can't you see
             C
Wherever you roam
         G               C
You'll always want me

[Outro]
                   D
You'll always want me
                   F
You'll always want me
                   C
You'll always want me (x3)

Good job!

I noticed on a live performance that Craigie plays Gadd4 (320013) on this song by just continuing to hold the high C note when transitioning from C to G and also that the C chords are played x32013.

Thanks for making this.
