Verse 1:

      B                                  B9 
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
     B                                 B9
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:

  B                  C#m7
I wish they all could be California,
  A                   Bm7
I wish they all could be California,
  G                   Am7           B
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 chorus]
