California Here I Come

Words & Music by Al Jolson, Bud De Sylva, and Joseph Meyer
Recorded by Al Jolson, 1946

D    D+     G
California, here I come 

A          A7+5     D
Right back where I started from. 

D           Fdim            Edim         A7
Where bowers    of flowers bloom in the spring. 

D           Fdim
Each morning     at dawning, 

Edim             A7
Birdies sing an' everything. 

   D       D+          G
A sunkist miss said, "Don't be late" 

A         A7+5    D
That's why I can hardly wait. 

G    Gm      B7      E7
Open up that Golden Gate, 

     G     A7  A7+5  D
California here I  come.
