Verse 1:

 BA/B
        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
 BA/B
        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#m7
        I wish they all could be California,
 AD
        I wish they all could be California,
 GCB
        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 dolls
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

 repeat cborus
