Song: California
Artist: Mick Flannery
Album: White Lies

Okay so. This is California. I love this song. Great guitar in it. I called this 
a chords tab because it is mostly chords but I'll tab out the intro and a fill.

Okay, Mick has a guitar style of using pick and his 2nd, 3rd and 4th fingers. A 
mix between picking and finger picking basically. So for this intro just use 
whatever you find easiest.

Gsus4: x54010

Intro: (make the chord shapes. the tabbing is based around them)

        Gsus4           F                             C            Gsus4             F

Verse 1

C                                 Dm
Lady, come into my room,
                        Dm                                      Gsus4
I pretend I'm sleeping, half an eye on you,
C                                      Dm
Slow, you take of your clothes,
                            Dm
You knew I was watching, 
                                          Gsus4  
Said "How'd you like to show?'
G                              F
    Then I told you I loved you
                 Fill             
And you said yeah I know,
G                                         F
    Babe I thought I could die
                  Fill      
Before I'd ever let go.

Verse 2

C                               Dm
Well, I fell under a spell
                            Dm
All the love you gave me
                              Gsus4
I took it from myself,
        C                                 Dm
And no matter what you tried
                                Dm
I wouldn't let you help me
                                  Gsus4 
Or look you in the eye,
G                              F
    I remember the day that we 
Fill
Said our goodbyes,
G                                        F        
    Though I can't for the life of me
Fill
Remember why
G                                  Dm
    I'm still going into town now too often,
Dm                                G      E7    Dm
Nails in my coffin, to auld lang syne,
         G                 F          Gsus4
Everytime, everytime

Verse 3

C                           Dm
I, I was afraid of time,
                Dm 
I I didn't change me
                         Gsus4
I would fall behind,
        C                            Dm
And so, I went on the road,
                 Dm
On to California, 
                    Gsus4
Here I am alone
G                                 F
    I know how to do right
                        Fill
But I've been getting it wrong,
G                                      F
     Now I'm sitting here hoping
     Fill
I'll come back to form
