Californication

Red Hot Chili Peppers

 

Intro: / Am - - - / F - - - / Am - - - / F - - - /

       / Am - - - / F - - - / Am - - - / F - - - /

 

Am                                F

Psychic spies from China try to steal your mind's elation

     Am                                F

And little girls from Sweden dream of silver screen quotation

    C (½)              G (½)                F (½)    Dm (½)

And if you want these kind of dreams, it's Californication

 

/ Am - - - / F - - - / Am - - - / F - - - /

 

         Am                               F

It's the    edge of the world and all of western civilization

     Am                                      F

The sun may rise in the east, at least it's settled in a final location

     C (½)            G (½)           F (½)    Dm (½)

It's understood that Hollywood sells Californication

 

/ Am - - - / F - - - / Am - - - / F - - - /

 

Am                              F

Pay your surgeon very well to break the spell of aging

    Am                                     F

Celebrity skin, is this your chin, or is that war you're waging?

Am                   F

   First born unicorn

Am                   F

   Hardcore soft porn

 

Chorus:

C (½)         G (½)  Dm (½)  Am (½)   C (½)       G (½) (Dm)

Dream of Californication,           dream of Californication

C (½)         G (½)  Dm (½)  Am (½)   C (½)       G (½) (Dm)

Dream of Californication,           dream of Californication

 

/ Am - - - / F - - - / Am - - - / F - - - /

 

Am                                                  F

Marry me girl, and be my fairy to the world, be my very own constellation

   Am                                        F

A teenage bride with a baby inside, getting high on information

     C (½)                G (½)           F (½)    Dm (½)

And buy me a star on the boulevard, it's Californication

 

/ Am - - - / F - - - / Am - - - / F - - - /

 

 

Am                                         F

Space may be the final frontier, but it's made in a Hollywood basement

     Am                                        F

And Cobain, can you hear the spheres, singing songs off station to station?

    C (½)          G (½)          F (½)    Dm (½)

And Alderon's not far away, it's Californication

 

/ Am - - - / F - - - / Am - - - / F - - - /

 

Am                                   F

Born and raised by those who praise control of population

Am                                             F

Everybody's been there, and I don't mean on vacation

Am                   F

   First born unicorn

Am                   F

   Hardcore soft porn

      / Bm - D - / A - E - / Bm - D - / A - E - /

      / Bm - D - / A - E - /

 

      / Am - - - / F - - - / Am - - - / F - - - /

 

     Am                                        F

Destruction leads to a very rough road, but it also breeds creation

    Am                                           F

And earthquakes are to a girl's guitar, they're just another good vibration

     C (½)                G (½)               F (½)    Dm (½)

And tidal waves couldn't save the world from Californication

 

/ Am - - - / F - - - / Am - - - / F - - - /

 

Am                               F

Pay your surgeon very well to break the spell of aging

Am                                            F

Sicker than the rest, there is no test, but this is what you're craving

Am                   F

   First born unicorn

Am                   F

   Hardcore soft porn
