        Well, [B]East Coast girls are hip, I really [B9]dig those styles they wear

Verse 2:
The West coast has the sunshine, and the girls all get so tanned
I dig a French bikini on Hawaiian Island girls
By a palm tree in the sand
I been all around this great big world and I've seen

But I couldn't wait to get back in the states,
Back to the cutest girls in the world

California Girls by Brian Wilson
In 3Chords, if you chose to use open chords I would click the change
key bar and change the key to D.
If you keep the original key, I suggest clicking on E-bar chords even
though many song books display A-bar chords.
