monday, january 20

i start to wonder about the visual hallucinations

little red–white–orange sparks
out the corner of my eye just as i'm turning the key in the door

probably just it's late and i'm tired.

right?

        G
I'd like to rest my heavy head tonight
      D
On a bed of California stars
             C
I'd like to lay my weary bones tonight
      G
On a bed of California stars
       G
I'd love to feel your hand touching mine
             D
And tell me why I must keep working on
          C
Yes, I'd give my life to lay my head tonight
      G
On a bed of California stars



G D C G    G D C G


              G
I'd like to dream my troubles all away
      D
On a bed of California stars
 C
Jump up from my starbed and make another day
     G
Underneath my California stars
         G
They hang like grapes on vines that shine
     D
And warm the lovers glass like friendly wine
         C
So, I'd give this world

just to dream a dream with you
      G
On a bed of California stars

This is how they played it on Letterman:

Capo on 2


I'd like to (G) rest my heavy head tonite

On a (D) bed of California Stars

I'd like to (C) lay my weary bones tonight

On a (G) bed of California Stars

I'd love to feel your hand touching mine
And tell my why I must keep working on
Yes, I'd give my life to lay my head tonight
On a bed of California stars.

I'd like to dream my troubles all away
On a bed of California stars
Jump up from my starbed and make another day
Underneath my California stars.

They hang like grapes on vines that shine
And warm the lovers glance like a friendly wine
So I'd give this world just to dream a dream of you
On our bed of California stars.

Repeat chords in a similar manner throughout the song.
