california girls they have a way
G                              C  
of moving their mouths just a certain way
G                                 D
saying things that always seem so right
             C                      G   
but when the shine wears off at the end of the day
    Em                          C 
i'm left with the tab and not a word to say
          G                  D                G   
because i see your face when they turn out my light
     C                          G        2          Em   
so i keep another night by this fire and drink some wine
X                                            C  G  C  G
it's the closest thing to you i'm gonna find

new york ladies, they drive men crazy
can't keep up, i'm from the south and lazy
this town stays open too late for this old bum
and maybe it's because it's got too many faces
crammed like fishes in compact places
this is why all of them seem desperate and alone
so i pick back up the cigarettes, but only for the night
X                                            C  G  C  G
it's the closest thing to you i'm gonna find

georgia girls took all my pennies
every time i come back i fall from many
i wake up and wonder i ever left here
when they spend all night with a drink to the face
get caught up in politics and race
i just smile and shove the cotton further down my ear
and my hands are full of the sticky stuff from your backyard georgia pie
it's the closest thing to you i'm gonna find
