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

Solo: | G | G | D | D | C | C | G | G |

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