                   Am   G  F        G        E7sus4  E7
All the leaves are brown    and the sky is gray
F               C   E7 Am     F        E7sus4  E7
I've been for a walk     on a winter's day
                Am  G  F     G        E7sus4  E7
I'd be safe and warm    if I was in L.A.
           Am      G  F   G               E7sus4
California dreamin'    on such a winter's day

                Am    G  F          G        E7sus4  E7
Stopped in to a church    I passed along the way
        F              C    E7 Am        F       E7sus4  E7
Well, I got down on my knees    and I pretend to pray
                                Am  G  F            G      E7sus4  E7
You know the preacher liked the cold,   he knows I'm gonna stay
           Am      G  F   G               E7sus4
California dreamin'    on such a winter's day

                   Am   G  F        G        E7sus4  E7
All the leaves are brown    and the sky is gray
F               C   E7 Am     F        E7sus4  E7
I've been for a walk     on a winter's day
            Am      G  F        G       E7sus4  E7
If I didn't tell her    I could leave today
           Am      G  F   G               Am
California dreamin'    on such a winter's day
     G        F          G               Am
(California dreamin') on such a winter's day
     G        F          G               F      Am
(California dreamin') on such a winter's day
