Intro: Em

C          Em
California dreamer
C                    Em
Tell me why did you go
C             D            Em
I carved your ever fading figure
C        D          Em          C
Into the ever dying snow
              D                         Em         C
I'll be around, I'll be around, I'll be around
        D            Em        C
Like a teenager in town
                D                        Em
Where all the other young lovers are found
                          D                 C  G
And I think I might have heard you on the radio
         C    D                Em
But the radio waves were like snow
C              D                 Em
And you were dreaming of Los Angeles
C            D                   Em
While I was singing songs you wrote
C            D               Em
You quietly gave away the winter clothes I made for you
C              D             Em
While I made angels in the snow
C                  D                Em
And I would have left if you'd just asked me to
C                D          Em
Or come to me before the preacher
C              D
Now you're a survivor
           Em                   D                  C  G
And I just thought I might have heard you on the radio
         C    D                Em
But the radio waves were like snow
                        D                 C  G
I thought I might have heard you on the radio
         C    D                Em
But the radio waves were like snow
        C          D             C          G
Do the young stay pretty, do the pretty stay quick?
      C              D      C
You know, but you never surrender
                     Em    G
The city doesn't belong to you anymore

D          Em
California dreamer
Em
You dream of seasons that never die
You go to oceans that never touch the ice
You dream of seasons that never die
You go to oceans that never touch the ice
You dream of seasons that never die
You go to oceans that never touch the ice

Surrender the city to splendor
The creatures get younger and younger
                          D                 C  G
And I think I might have heard you on the radio
         C    D                Em
But the radio waves were like snow
                          D                 C  G
Oh I think I might have heard you on the radio
         C     D
But the radio waves were like snow
        C          D             C          G
Do the young stay pretty, do the pretty stay quick?
      C              D      C
You know, but you never surrender
                     Em    G
The city doesn't belong to you anymore
D          Em

C
              D                         Em         C
I'll be around, I'll be around, I'll be around
        D            Em        C
Like a teenager in town
             D                        G                  C
With all the other young lovers their mothers may have found
     D      Em
California dreamer
