California  Mason Jennings

(Part2)
TUNING: HALF STEP DOWN (D# G# C# F# A# D#)
The previous tab here was close, though it assumed a D chord for part of the
which isn't true. I've made the listed Intro/refrain what I assume he plays, and I've
at the
(*) what I think sounds better (it really just eliminates a weak sounding hammer on).
stated above, the recording (and live shows), Mason Jennings tunes half a step down.
you're just grooving, it's hardly necessary. Thanks to whomever posted the last tab, it
a good starting point.

[C]I tell you what I'm gonna do[F] [G]
I'm gonna l[C]ighten up[F] [G]
I'm gonna th[C]row a box of books and my b[F]eloved gu[G]itar
into the b[C]ack of my truck
[F] And try my l[G]uck in
INTRO x 2
Gonna stay away from LA
Stayin far away from there
Going north of San Fransisco
Into the cleaner air
Gonna get a little land from the money I saved
Buy an old house that I can work on
where the next nearest neighbor lives miles away
I'll never have to mow the lawn, right on
INTRO x 2
BRIDGE x 4
and when the house is all finished
and the garden is grown
i'm gonna write you a letter
asking you to come home
and i know that you will come
yes i know that you will come
others may know where ya been
but honey i know where you're from, you're from
