Your Song to Play for Today.

Dear Lucky Stars,
Say, I thought you might need this song, because you might soon go camping, in California, in winter.  If you are not going camping, it is still an absolutely fabulous song-  why?  Because their are just three easy chords, it repeats and repeats, the lyrics are by Woody Guthrie, and the simple tune by Billy Bragg and Wilco.  Yep; it's a keeper!
Listen once and play it for the rest of your life!


California Stars

         D           A           E 

Verse 1:
I'd like to rest my heavy head tonight
On a bed of California stars
I'd like to lay my weary bones tonite
On a bed of California stars

Verse 2:
I'd love to feel your hand touching mine
And tell me why I must keep working on
Yes, i'd give my life to la my head tonight
On a bed of California stars

Verse 3:
I'd like to dream my troubles are away
On a bed of California stars
Jump up from a starbed and make another day
Underneath my California stars

Verse 4:
They hang like grapes on vines that shine
And warm the lovers glass like friendly wine
So, I'd give this world just to dream a dream with you
On our bed of California stars
