Verse 1:

 BB9
        Well, East Coast girls are hip, I really dig those styles they wear
 E
        And the Southern girls with the way they talk
 F#
        They knock me out when I'm down there
 BB9
        The midwest farmers' daughters really make you feel alright
 E
        And the Northern girls with the way they kiss
 F#
        They keep their boyfriends warm at night
Chorus:
 BC#m
        I wish they all could be California,
 ABm
        I wish they all could be California,
 GAm7B
        I wish they all could be California Girls
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
all kinds of girls
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.
