About this tab version
A great west coast parody of "American Kids" by Kenny Chesney. The Em B C G chord pattern in the verses and throughout the song should be played as power chords only including the root and 5th. The chorus should be played as full chords. Here's a link to the song... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PN73Xrw4Thg. Was this info helpful? Yes No

[Intro]
Em B C G
Em B C G
Em B C G
Em B C G


[Verse]
Em        B          C              G
Midnight pier jump, Meet me at the taco truck 
Em              B        C     G
Lengua just to give it a try 
Em           B          C         G
Front yard beer pong, Inflatable pool foam... 
Em            B      C     G
Party on the 4th of July 
Em           B             C                  G
Everyday in board shorts, Leave your sandals at the door 
Em       B       C      G
Bonfire jam all night 
Em  B        C  G           Em        B       C
405 cruisin' PCH, while we all sing along to Sublime 


[Chorus]
         G                 Bm
We were barefoot babes in neon shades 
Em                 C
Surfin' Cali-for-ni-a
G                  Bm 
Everyone stops to watch the sun drop, 
Em                  C
Malibu to San Diego Bay 
     G                 Bm
California dreamin', burrito eatin' 
Em                     C
Beach baby, give me a kiss 
G                       Bm
Put me on the cover of Surfer Magazine 
             Em                  C
Cause I'm a Southern California kid 

Em        B         C      G
Paddlin' out with a good vibration 
Em        B           C          G
Droppin' in with the south swell breakin' 
Em           B           C       G      Em
Sharin' that stoke on a Saturday night 
N.C.
A little sun-burnt but we're all alright! 


[Instrumental]
Em B C G
Em B C G


[Verse]
Em        B           C         G
In-N-Out drive thru, Out past curfew 
Em             B        C    G
Double double, animals fries 
Em                B           C           G
Did you feel the earthquake? Cali green, Golden State 
Em          B       C    G
Votin' to decriminalize 
Em          B     C   G
Blue jeans got a big dream 
Em  B        C      G
LAX    bound flight 
Em                 B      C             G
Now she's waitin' tables just so she is able
    Em         B         C 
To keep on the Hollywood lights 


[Chorus]
         G                 Bm
We were barefoot babes in neon shades 
Em                 C
Surfin' Cali-for-ni-a
G                  Bm 
Everyone stops to watch the sun drop, 
Em                  C
Malibu to San Diego Bay 
     G                 Bm
California dreamin', burrito eatin' 
Em                     C
Beach baby, give me a kiss 
G                       Bm
Put me on the cover of Surfer Magazine 
             Em                  C
Cause I'm a Southern California kid 

Em        B         C      G
Paddlin' out with a good vibration 
Em        B           C          G
Droppin' in with the south swell breakin' 
Em           B           C       G      Em
Sharin' that stoke on a Saturday night 
N.C.
A little sun-burnt but we're all alright!

Cause I'm a Southern California kid 

Em        B         C      G
Paddlin' out with a good vibration 
Em        B           C          G
Droppin' in with the south swell breakin' 
Em           B           C       G      Em
Sharin' that stoke on a Saturday night 
N.C.
A little sun-burnt but we're all alright!
