Dear California Chords
« on: June 01, 2011, 04:25:57 am »
I just figured this one out few hours ago, and I fell in love to it along the way. I'm feeling good about the chords. (:
This one's in the key of E major. (:

Dear California


INTRO: | E | E | E | E | (3X)


VERSE I:
A              B                      E
  As usual, I'm in a tricky predicament
A                      B                                          E
  Weather in my thoughts, on the roof sneaking a cigarette
A              B                E           C#m
  Dear California, it's been nice to know ya
A                       B                      E (drop)
  Tell me will you miss me when I'm gone?


CHORUS I:
                                 A           B             E
  Cause he loves me as I leave, so I'm gonna go
                                A                 B             E
  And I'm not in company's when you feel it most
                                 A                 B                  E
  And you keep my memory, I hope ya keep me close
                                  A         B       E
  Would you love me as I   leave?


VERSE II:
A              B                         E
  This alchemy is making me suspicious (Oooh-oooh)
A                        B                   E                       C#m                         A
  As if I slipped you some belladonna that I crossed town to get, don't you know?
              B                          E (Drop)
  Yes, my grand friend checks it


CHORUS I:
                             A           B             E
  Oh he loves me as I leave, so I'm gonna go
                                A                 B             E
  And I'm not in company's when you feel it most
                                A                 B                  E
  And you keep my memory, I hope ya keep me close
                                 A         B       E
  Would you love me as I   leave?


CHORUS II:
                                A         B           E
  Ever changing as the sea, it's my only hope
                              A         B           E
  It's just me and my pup in the open road
                                A        B            E
  But your face is like a paper cut to the heart
                        A         B          
  Slip away while you sleep


BRIDGE:
A             E
  It's easy,   it's easier
C#m              B  
  Than it seems
A             E
 It's easy,   it's easier
C#m              B  
  Than it seems
A           E        C#m           B
  Just go,  I'll go,     don't cry
A            E          C#m             B    A (Drop)
  Don't go,  don't go,    you still cry

| A - B | E |
| A - B | E  |     A - B | E  |
             I don't cry
| A - B | E |


CHORUS I:
                             A           B             E
  Oh he loves me as I leave, so I'm gonna go
                                A                 B             E
  And I'm not in company's when you feel it most
                                A                 B                  E
  And you keep my memory, I hope ya keep me close
                                 A         B       E
  Would you love me as I   leave?
 

CODA:
                                A - B       E
  Ever changing as the sea
                                    A       -      B         E      
  Would you love me as I leave? (Dear California)
                                   A       -      B         E
  Would you love me as I leave? (Dear California)
                                    A       -      B         E
  Would you love me as I leave? (Dear California)
                                    A       -      B         E (Drop)
  Would you love me as I leave? (Dear California)

so far i do, but i like Get Good too. i'm wondering what the relationship is between the songs, based on the question you asked? Dear California is the only song i've found a chord thread for, but if you've done chords for more songs, i would greatly appreciate you pointing them out.

Thanks again.

Thank you! I am going to try to learn this with my friend on the guitar and me on the piano! :)
I have a really cool The Fray gif that I would like to put here, but I don't know how. :(
