D                         Em7/B  (alt. w/ Em7/B(II))       D   (riff)
   Take a long drive with me on California one, California one 
Take a long drive with me on California one, California one
        D                               Ddim/A  Ddim/AaddG   D
And the road a-winding goes from golden gate to roaring      cliff-side 
And the light is softly low as our hearts become sweetly untied 
            Em7/B Em7/B(II)              D    (riff)  D
Beneath the sun            of California one 

Take a long dram with me of California wine 
Take a long dram with me of California wine 
And the wine it tastes so sweet, as we lay our eyes to wander 
And the sky, it stretches deep, will we rest our heads to slumber 
Beneath the vines of California wine
Beneath the sun of California one
