California Girl Joe Purdy

This uses a capo on the 5th fret, but I like to play it without one, so I'll give you
the chords for playing it normally too, but I've written it with the chords played
using a capo.

G - 320033 (C - X32010)
C - X32010 (F - 133211)

[G]Into the [D/F#]night [C]sky
Say [G]hey[G/F#], [C] don't you leave me in [G]LA [G/F#]alone[C]
