CALIFORNIA
Capo @ 4 in C/Am

I’m (Am) going back to California
A little place in the San (E) Joaquin
(Am, stepping down A G F# F E)
Where the back pasture builds
To Sierra foothills
And Kaweah tumbles down cool and clean

I’m going back to California
A little girl named Kathleen
She plays first clarinet in the band
Where we met and I’m still seventeen

(Am F) California! (C G) California! (2)

I’m going back to California
Going back to Tehachapi
With it’s lilacs and beets and the Monolith concretes
Falls like snow on the streets

I’m going back to California
To my sunshine memories
Where the moon on the beach
Pushes Time out of reach
And the eons stretch out on the breeze

California! California! (6)

Matthew F. Blowers III I am really liking your song on California, I have a special love for that state. You captured all the reaons I miss it, with your superb storytelling in lyrics and with the smooth harmonies and extremely well played music. It has a catchy beat, and I listened to the very last note.

California has a chorus that camouflages the dramatic irony of the verse narrative. If it weren’t for the unusual intro, it’d seem zirconium. Christopher Youngblood
