Dani California by The Red Hot Chili Peppers

Verse 1

Am                               G

Getting born in the state of Mississippi,

Dm                                            Am

Her Poppa was a copper and her Momma was a hippie

Am                 G

In Alabama she would swing a hammer,

Dm                                                Am

Price you gotta pay when you break the panorama

Am              G                                  Dm           Am

She never knew that there was anything more than poor,

Am                  G                           Dm           Am

What in the world does your company take me for?


Verse 2

Am                      G

Black bandana, sweet Louisiana,

Dm                                            Am

Robbin’ all the banks in the state of Indiana,

Am                        G

She’s a runner, rebel and a stunner,

Dm                                                   Am

Condemned everywhere sayin, ‘baby whatcha gonna’

Am                            G               Dm             Am

Lookin down the barrel of a hot metal .45,

Am                    G                Dm

Just another way to survive



F          C            Dm

California, Rest In Peace,

G        F           C   Dm

Simultaneous release,

G    F          C                 Dm

California, show your teeth,

G      F              C             Dm

She’s my priestess, I’m your priest, yeah, yeah
