That old dog has chained you up, all right
                                A           D/G
Give you everything you need to live inside a twisted cage

Free your mind, and you won't feel ashamed

                                         A              D/G
I give you something sweet each time you come inside my jungle book

I'd turn on the Rolling Stones
         C                     D
We could groove along and feel much better
       G         D
Let me in  
                 C                 D    
I could do it forever and ever and ever and ever
A             D
   Give me an hour to kiss you
D
Walk through Heaven's door I'm sure
      C                     D
Don't need no doctor to feel much better
A                   D
    Let me in, oh

A    D/G

[Verse]
                             A              D/G
I sat on a mountainside with peace of mind
                              A            D/G
And I lay by the ocean making love to her with visions clear
                                  A      D/G
Walked for days with no one near
                                     D
And I return as chained and bound to you
             A/C#
Damn, I wish I was your lover

I'd rock you 'til the daylight comes                  
Made sure you are smiling and warm
D                      F#m7
    I am everything, tonight, I'll be your mother
     Bm
I'll do such things to ease your pain
Free your mind, and you won't feel ashamed
D           A/C#
Shucks, for me there is no other
Bm
You're the only shoe that fits
I can't imagine I'll grow out of it
D           F#m7
    Damn, I wish I was your lover

I wanna open up, I'm gonna come inside 
I wanna fill you up, I wanna make you cry
D            A/C#
Damn, I wish I was your lover
Bm
Gettin' on a subway, and I'm comin' uptown
D       A/C#
Damn, I wish I was your lover
Bm
Standing on the street corner, waiting for my life to change
D            A/C#
Damn, I wish I was your lover
        Bm
And I'm feelin' like a school boy, too shy and too young, oh
D     F#m7
Damn, I wish I was your lover
      Bm
Tryna open up, I wanna come inside

finally! after 2 decades this "top-10 hit" song finally gets tabbed. that always did seem to defy reason. Bless You RumikKey! I've been searching for this ever since the mid-90s, even trolling through the tabs at OLGA, (the first?) On-Line-Guitar-Archive (R.I.P.). well done, it appears to be very accurate at a glance, and I appreciate the complete lyrics as well (non-abbreviated).

however, the song I want to play even more than 'DAMN' is its follow-up single, "California Here I come" (hint hint). I'd figure it out myself, but my transcriber's ear is a bad one (obviously or I wouldn't be forced to beg assistance from strangers more talented than I).

THanks again! Mick

Unfortunately this will not allow me to actually reply for some reason (?)
I didn't actually transcribe this :c I found this on pianofiles.com! It was the original sheet music for this! I was unfortunately not able to acquire the entire Tongues and Tails book :c
However, there is a trend I've noticed with a lot of songs on the same album, so maybe you can get somewhere if you try! I've noticed that many artists are fond of particular chords or progressions on one album, so if you see any unique or unusual chords, try them out on California!
I hope that helps!
