Here In California
By Dave Alvin
Tabbed By Larry Mofle

Capo 2

When I was young my mother told me
         D             Em 
She said son take your time
      C                G
Don't fall in love too quickly
  Am                 C
Before you know your mind
She held me around the shoulders
         D              Em 
And in a voice soft and kind
         C                 G
She said love can make you happy
    Am               G
And love can rob you blind

Am D        G
Here in California
Am          D            Em
Fruit hangs heavy on the vines
           C                   G
There's no gold, I thought I'd warn you
        Am         D                  G
And the hills turn brown in the summertime

Will I may learn to love you
But I can't say when
This morning we were strangers
Tonight we're only friends

But I'll take the time to know you
I'll take the time to see
There's nothing that I won't show you
If you take your time with me


Itís an old familiar story
Itís an old familiar rhyme
To everything there is a season
To every purpose there's a time

Time to love and come together
Time when love longs for a name
A time for questions that we can't answer
But we ask them just the same


There's no gold I thought I'd warn you
But the hills turn brown in the summertime
