California Nights  Lesley Gore

(bass enters)

E C (N.C.)
Verse 1:

        [Dm7/C]Along the [Cmaj7]sand
        [Dm7/C]Let's walk the s[Em]hores tog[Am]ether, now
        [Dm7/C]Yes, hand in[Cmaj7] hand
        [Dm7/C]It's gonna [Em]be fair w[Am]eather now
        W[Em]hen the s[Am]tars come out
Dm7 (N.C.) G (bass) C
Stop (stop!) to count them in the sky

Chorus 1:

        L[Fm]ong California n[Gb]ights
        When I'm walkin' with y[E]ou
        Hand in hand by the sh[C]ore
        Yes, I l[Fm]ove California ni[Gb]ghts
        At the beach where we'd s[E]wim
        With the tide rollin' [C]in

Verse 2:

And there we'll be
Beneath the midnight sky above
Just you and me
And we will whisper words of love
While the firelight
Soft (soft)-ly flickers in the sand

Chorus 2:

Warm California nights
With the breeze blowin' in
The time for love to begin
I would miss California nights
If I went on my way
Thinkin' now that I'll stay


        Ooh, [Dm7/G]baby    [Cmaj7/G]
        Love you,[Dm7/G] baby   [Cmaj7/G]
        Mmm, [Dm7/G]baby

Chorus 3:

Long California nights
Always close as a kiss
Nothin' sweeter than this
And we'll spend California nights
Always close as a kiss (fade)

-- another ace 60's tab from Andrew Rogers
