California Here I Come
[Em] When the [B7] wint'ry [Em] winds are [B7] blowin'
And the [Em] snow is [B7] starting to [Em] fall, [B7]
[Em] That's when [B7] I'll be [Em] westward goin'
To the [G] place I [B7] love the best of [Em] all
[D7] Ca[D#dim]li[Am]for[D7]nia [G] I've been blue
[D7] Since [D#dim] I've [Am] been [D7] a[Em]way from [B7] you
[Em] I can't [B7] wait 'til [Em] I get [B7] goin'
Even [Em] now I'm [B7] starting into [Em] call
Hear me [D9]ca[D7]ll
[C] Cali[Gaug] fornia, [C] here I [A7]come
[D7] Right back where I [G] started from
Where bowers [Gdim] of flowers
[Am] Bloom in the [D7] sun
[G] Each morning [Gdim] at dawning
[Am] Birdies sing and [D7] everything
A [G] sun-kissed [Gaug] miss said, "[C] Don't be [A7] late"
[D7] That's why I can [G] hardly [E7] wait
[Am] Op[E7]en [Am] up your [B7] golden [Em] gate
Cali[A7]fornia, [D7sus4] here [D7] I [G] come
[Em] Any[B7]one who [Em] likes to [B7] wander
Ought to [Em] keep this [B7] saying in his [Em] mind [B7]
“[Em] Absence [B7] makes the heart [Em] grow fonder
Of that [G] good old [B7] place you leave be[Em]hind “
[D7] When [D#dim] you've [Am] hit [D7] the [G] trail awhile
[D7] Seems [D#dim] you [Am] rare[D7]ly [Em] see a [B7] smile
[Em] That's why [B7] I must [Em] fly out [B7] yonder
Where a [Em] frown is [B7] mighty hard to [Em] find
