Southern California Recorded by George Jones and Tammy Wynette Written by George Richey, Billy Sherrill, Roger Dale Bowling
G You always said someday you'd go to live C G In Southern California D7 G And me I'd stay right here in Tennessee
You always talked about the better days C G In Southern California D7 But if you'll stay in Tennessee G I promise there'll be better days with me
It's not that I don't love you
But I hear the call C G From Southern California D7 G There's something I can't find in Tennessee
Silver screens and limousines C G They wait for me in Southern California D7 Though you've been so good to me G The time has come you'll have to set me free
Tomorrow when you leave you'll take my heart C G To Southern California D7 But just remember I'll be here G To keep your heart with me until you see
Well it's been five years and I guess I've cried a million tears Looking out the window of this little room Right over that flashing neon sign that says bar It's almost midnight and time to go downstairs and go to work I wonder how he's doing in Tennessee
Well here I sit by the window of this big old lonely mansion Looking out over the Smokies and owning everything I can see Oh I guess by now she's found what she was looking for And as I look at this old faded photograph Of the girl that I still love I wonder if she ever thinks of me
But the weather's good C G In Southern California
