L.A. Blues
By Tom T. Hall
Written by Tom T. Hall
Album: In Search Of A Song  (1971)
Tabbed by Larry Mofle

Capo 3

D             E7        G          A         D
I got off the airplane 'long about 7:30 in L.A.
D              E7           G               A                D
What a drag to realize that everything's so different and so same
G          A                  D                   Bm
All my California friends are searching for their minds
         G                A                      D
And it's been right there in their heads all the time

     G           D     Bm
L.A. blues, L.A. blues 

You want me to be like you
Ha ha there ain't no way

California Charlie met me at my room when I got in
We toasted country picking 
And the help of all our good and mutual friends
Before the morning came we put a handle on the world
And decided that we'd give it to the squirrels


Key Change to D# (move Capo up 1 fret)

Soaking up that sunshine and eating eggs and bacon over light
Sleeping through the daytime and contemplating sin throughout the night
Please hand me my hat and darling give me back my things
Ole T's got a bunch of songs to sing


I like California and I wouldn't want to put it down no way
But I heard what you're thinking and it ain't exactly what I want to say
Someday California I'll come roarin' back to you
If you don't fall in the ocean before I do
