                Californina Waiting - Kings of Leon
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Frosty       
Email: samuelfrost@yahoo.com

Tuning: DADGBe

Try this variation on the riff supplied in the 1st version of the intro 
(dont know who to accredit it to) I'm afraid i like to combine two obviously
separate guitar parts into some acoustic plucking so leave out the 
bass notes if you aren't into that:

e----------------------------5h7-5----              
b--3h5-3---3h5-3---3-/-7-7-7-------7--
g--------4-------4--------------------
D------------------0-----0-0-0--------
A-------------------------------------
D--5-------5--------------------------

Anyway here's the song

Verse A - palm muted mostly
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-5-(lots)---------------------------4-0 (lots)-----------------------------|

   Little Mona Lisa laying by my side
   "Crimson and Clover" pullin’ overtime
   Seem too close to be losin’ touch

Prechorus
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-4----------------------------------2--------------------------------------|
D|-4----------------------------------2--------------------------------------|
A|-2----------------------------------0--------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

   By givin’ in, what am I givin’ up, Am I losin’ way too much


Chorus - clean, no palm mute
e|--------------------------------------0------------------------------------|
B|---8----------------------------------2------------------------------5-/-7-|
G|---7----------------------------------2------------------------------4-/-6-|
D|---5----------------------------------0------------------------------------|
A|---5----------------------------------0------------------------------------|
D|---5----------------------------------0------------------------------------|

(i)  Hey                                California waiting
(ii) Say                                While you’re tryin’ to save me

e|----------------------------------------------0----------------------------|
B|----8-----------------------------------------2----------------------------|
G|----7----------------------------4------------2----------------------------|
D|----5----------------------------4------------0----------------------------|
A|----5----------------------------2------------0----------------------------|
D|----5-----------------------------------------0----------------------------|

(i)   Every little thing’s gotta   be just right
(ii)  Can’t I get back my          lonely life


2nd verse (often no palm mute and even full dropped-d power chord eg 555xxx)

verse A
I’m goin’ so fast that I can’t slow down
It’s hard to get up when you’re spinnin’ round and round
I’d tell you the news but nothin’s changed

verse B
I’d sing you a song but they blew it away
All wrapped up in this stupid ass game

Chorus
Hey, California waiting
Every little thing’s gotta be just right
Say, While you’re tryin’ to save me
Can’t I get back my lonely life
Can’t I get back my lonely life 


Soft Chorus 
- 1 rake and let ring each of 55578x then 000230 then
- 1 rake and let ring each of 55578x then 000235

And back to normal chorus with palm muting
