Verse 1:
              G                                  F 
        Well, East Coast girls are hip, I really dig those styles they wear
                 C
        And the Southern girls with the way they talk 
                      D
        They knock me out when I'm down there
             G                                F
        The midwest farmers' daughters really make you feel alright
                 C         
        And the Northern girls with the way they kiss
                        D
        They keep their boyfriends warm at night

Chorus:
          G                  Am7
        I wish they all could be California,
          F                   Gm7
        I wish they all could be California,
          Eb                  Fm7           G
        I wish they all could be California Girls

Verse 2:
                                                 F
        The West coast has the sunshine, and the girls all get so tanned
                      C
        I dig a French bikini on Hawaiian Island dolls
                  D
        By a palm tree in the sand
             G                                          F
        I been all around this great big world and I've seen all kinds of girls
                C
        But I couldn't wait to get back in the states,  
                             D
        Back to the cutest girls in the world

Chorus:
          G                  Am7
        I wish they all could be California,
          F                   Gm7
        I wish they all could be California,
          Eb                  Fm7           G
        I wish they all could be California Girls

Outro -repeat-:
          G                                  Am7
        I wish they all could be California girls
        -wish they all could be California-
