Subject: Chords Add: GOING TO CALIFORNIA (Johnny McEvoy)
Intro: C-G-D-G-C-G-D7-D-G-C-G

He was (G)never there when needed
and (C)oh who much she (Am)pleaded
Saying (G)darling wont you stay home just one (D)time
He'd just (G)smile and (C)say I'm (G)sorry
But (C)there's no need to (Am)worry
Just gonna (G)meet some (C)army (G)buddies
Drink some beer and (D7)fight the (G)war.

In the (G)kitchen making wishes
As she (C)tidies up the (Am)dishes
On an(G)other lonely weekend
And the wine she drank a(D7)lone
And the (G)nights they (C)hold no (G)pity
In the (C)cold of New York (Am)city
As she (G)waits there (C)in the (G)darkness
To hear his key turn (D7)in the (G)door

She said I'm (D)going to Cali(D7)fornia
To taste the (C)sunshine and the (G)wine
Sit be(C)side the rolling (G)ocean
And slowly pass the (D7)time
Reading (G)books and (C)old love (G)stories
And for(C)get about my (Am)worries
And (G)maybe (C)who knows (G)maybe
We'll (D)meet a(D7)gain some(G)time.

Change of key!

Then one (C)night he came home sober
With a (F)longing just to (Dm)hold her
When he (C)found the note she'd )written
Waiting by the tele(G)phone
And she (C)said ''I'll a(F)lways (C)love you
And (F)never will for(Dm)get you
Bit I (C)just can't (F)take this (C)lonely (G7)feeling any(C)more''

Now the (C)nights are cold and lonely
And he (F)sits and watches (Dm)TV
Drinking (C)beer and chasing whiskey
Wondering where it all went (G)wrong
And his (C)eyes are (F)tired and (C)burning
From the (F)dreams that keet re(Dm)turning
And (C)all his (F)yester(C)days they (G7)wont leave him a(C)lone

She said I'm (G)going to Cali(G7)fornia
To taste the (F)sunshine and the (C)wine
Sit be(F)side the rolling (C)ocean
And slowly pass the (G7)time
Reading (C)books and (F)old love (C)stories
And for(F)get about my (Dm)worries
And (C)maybe (F)who knows (C)maybe
We'll (G)meet a(G7)gain some(C)time.
