Intro: D D/E D/F# D/A Emin F#min G* Emin D

D Em
Take a long drive with me
D
on California one, California one
D Em
take a long drive with me
D
on California one, California one

and the road a-winding goes
Gm D
from golden gate to roaring cliff-side
Gm D
and the light is softly low as our hearts become sweetly untied
C G D
beneath the sun of California one


D Em
take a long dram with me
D
of California wine, of California wine
D Em
take a long dram with me
D
of California wine, of California wine

and the wine it tastes so sweet
Gm D
as we lay our eyes to wander

and the sky, it stretches deep
Gm D C G
will we rest our heads to slumber beneath the vines of
D C G D
California wine? beneath the sun of California One

and if I said, O it's in your head
G Em G Em
on this sea-drift sun
D+
what can you do?

D
we're calling all bed wetters and ambulance chasers

poor picker-pockets bring 'em in
D/F# G D
come join the youth and beauty brigade

D
we're lining up the light-loaferes

and the bored bench warmers

castaways and cutouts, fill it up
D/F# G D
come join the youth and beauty brigade
Em F#m G
nothing will stand in our way

G A D G
I figured I had paid my debt to society
F#m Em G
by paying my overdue fines at the Multnomah County Library, at

the library

they said son, go join up
D G D
go join the youth and beauty brigade'
Em F#m G
nothing will stand in our way
