Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Californication  Red Hot Chili Peppers



[Am]Psychic spies from China
Try to [F]steal your mind's elation
[Am]Little girls from Sweden
Dream of [F]silver screen quotations
And [C]if you want these [G]kind of dreams
It's [F]Californi[D]cation
Am F x2

Verse 2:

It's the [Am]edge of the world
And all of [F]western civilization
The [Am]sun may rise in the East
At least it [F]settles in the final location
It's [C]understood that [G]Hollywood
sells [F]Californi[D]cation

Am F x2

Pre Chorus:

[Am]Pay your surgeon very well
To [F]break the spell of aging
[Am]Celebrity skin is this your chin
Or i[F]s that war your waging
[Am]First born uni[F]corn
[Am]Hardcore soft p[F]orn

Chorus:

[C]Dream of Cali[G]fornic[D]ation  [Am]
[C]Dream of Cali[G]fornic[D]ation

Am F x2

Verse 3:


[Am]Marry me girl be my fairy to the world
Be my [F]very own constellation
A [Am]teenage bride with a baby inside
Getting [F]high on information
And [C]buy me a star on the[G] boulevard
It's [F]Californi[D]cation
Am F x2

Verse 4:
[Am]Space may be the final frontier
But it's [F]made in a Hollywood basement
[Am]Cobain can you hear the spheres
Singing [F]songs off station to station
And A[C]lderon's not [G]far away
It's [F]Californi[D]cation

Am F x2

Pre Chorus 2:

[Am]Born and raised by those who praise
Contro[F]l of population
E[Am]verybody's been there and
I [F]don't mean on vacation
[Am]First born uni[F]corn
[Am]Hardcore soft [F]porn

Chorus:
[C]Dream of Cali[G]forni[D]cation  [Am]
[C]Dream of Cali[G]forni[D]cation
[C]Dream of Cali[G]forni[D]cation  [Am]
[C]Dream of Cali[G]forni[D]cation


[F#m]    [D]  [F#m]    [D]                           
[Bm]   [D]  [A]  [E]                              
[F#m]    [D]  [F#m]    [D]                           
Bm D A E x3

Am F x2

Verse 5:

[Am]Destruction leads to a very rough road
       [F]                              
But it also breeds creation
And [Am]earthquakes are to a girl's guitar
They're [F]just another good vibration
And [C]tidal waves couldn't [G]save the world
From [F]Californi[D]cation

Am F x2

Pre Chorus 3:

[Am]Pay your surgeon very well
To [F]break the spell of aging
[Am]Sicker than the rest there is no test
But [F]this is what you're craving
[Am]First born uni[F]corn
[Am]Hardcore soft [F]porn

Chorus:

[C]Dream of Cali[G]forni[D]cation [Am]
[C]Dream of Cali[G]forni[D]cation
[C]Dream of Cali[G]forni[D]cation [Am]
[C]Dream of Cali[G]forni[D]cation

The D's should be Dminors and the F's in the pre-chorus sound better as Fmaj7

Not sure about the guitar, but when I play this on the ukulele it seems to sound better playing Dm in place of D.
