California Girl
Chilliwack Lyrics


California, California.

Well I know you now, understand you now,
And I love you more each day.
California girl, California girl,
You're the best thing that I've seen in a while.
California girl, California girl,
There must be something magic in your smile.

Now when I came to this California town,
I came here to make the big time.
But I tried so hard, but got no rewards,
And it seemed that I was wasting my tim.

I was kicking around this lonesome town,
Trying to pick myself up instead of going down.
But something sure changed when I met you,
California now is looking bright and blue.

California girl, California girl,
Well it seemed that I was wasting my time,
California girl, California girl,
But now I know you girl and I love you girl,
And it seems that California's all mine.

I been knocking on doors trying to sell my songs,
I been gettin' refused everywhere I've gone.
But something sure changed when I met you,
California now is looking bright and blue.

California girl, California girl,
Well I don't know how to say what's on my mind.
But now I know you girl and I love you girl,
And it feels like California's all mine.

Well it feels like California's all mine
California, California girl.
California, California.

Which Canada are you talking about? Most of those bands and musicians came from southern Ontario, some from Vancouver, and a few from the prairies primarily Winnipeg based. And Rock 'n Roll is only one genre of music, Ian Tyson from Alberta made it in American country music, and Anne Murray was very popular in the USA in the 1970s. Keep in mind, about circa early 1980s there was a rock 'n roll trade war going on between the USA and Canada. It was primarily the US strictly limiting CDN rock 'n roll bands from being heard on US radio stations and touring in the US. Canada responded in kind by limiting radio stations in Canada from playing 'seductive' US rock 'n roll music, although US bands toured in Canada and their records were sold at record stores.

People are entitled to their opinion, but if they hate this beautiful song I think they are really stupid! Chiliwack weren't just another band. They had been around for ages in the band THE COLLECTORS in the 60s and this is class music. Beautiful harmonies and great instrumental work.
