California Dreaming by The Mamas and the Papas – Lyrics with Chords

Note: Capo on the 4th Fret
[Verse 1] 

                   Am  G  F          G     Esus4 E  
All the leaves are brown   and the sky is gray  
F               C  E  Am         F     Esus4  E 
I've been for a walk       on a winter's day
                   Am  G  F     G     Esus4   E 
I'd be safe and warm    if I was in L.A.   
Am   G     F          G              Esus4  E 
California dreamin' on such a winter's day 

[Verse 2]

                    Am  G  F          G        Esus4  E 
Stopped in to a church     I passed along the way
  F                    C    E Am       F       Esus4  E 
Well I got down on my knees   and I pretend to pray
   E                               Am  G  F  
You know the preacher liked the cold
               G      Esus4  E 
He knows I'm gonna stay
  Am    G   F            G               Esus4  E 
California dreamin' on such a winter's day 

[Instrumental]

                    Am  G  F          G     Esus4 E 
All the leaves are brown and the sky is gray
  F               C  E  Am         F     Esus4  E 
I've been for a walk on a winter's day
                   Am  G  F     G     Esus4   E 
If I didn't tell her I could leave today 

[Outro]

Am   G    F           G               Am 
California dreamin' on such a winter's day  
Am   G    F           G               Am 
California dreamin' on such a winter's day  
Am   G    F           G               Am 
California dreamin' on such a winter's day
