Surfin USA

If ev'rybody had an [B7]ocean, across the U.S.[E]A.
Then ev'rybody'd be [B7]surfin' like Californi[E]a
You'd see them wearin' their [A]baggies, huarachi sandals [E]too
A bushy bushy blond [B7]hairdo, surfin' [E]U.S.A.

You'll catch 'em surfin' at Del Mar, Ventura County Line
Santa Cruz and Tressels, Australia's Narabine
All over Manhattan and down Doheny Way
Ev'rybody's gone surfin', surfin' U.S.A.

Well all be plannin' out a route, we're gonna take real soon
We're waxin' down out surfboards, we can't wait for June
We'll all be gone for the summer, we're on safari to stay
Tell the teacher we're surfin', surfin' U.S.A.

At Haggarty's and Swami's, Pacific Palisades
San Onofree and Sunset, Redondo Beach, L. A.
All over La Jolla, at Waiamea Bay
Ev'rybody's gone surfin', surfin' U.S.A.

Then I kissed her

G G G G G G
[intro]

G D G G
Well I walked up to her and I asked her if she wanted to dance

G D G G
She looked awful nice, and so I hoped she might take a chance

C G C G
When we danced I held her tight, and then I walked her home that night

G D G G
And all the stars were shining bright and then I kissed her


Each time I saw her I couldn't wait to see her again
I wanted to let her know that I was more than a friend
I didn't know just what to do, so I whispered "I love you"
And she said that she loved me too, and then I kissed her


C C6 Cmaj7 C6 C (notes: G-G-A-B D-C-G)
I kissed her in a way that I'd never kissed a girl before

A7 A7 D7
I kissed her in a way that I hoped she'd like for evermore



I knew that she was mine so I gave her all the love that I had
Then one day she'll take me home to meet her mom and her dad
And then I'll ask her to be my bride, and always be right by my side
I felt so happy that I almost cried, and then I kissed her
And then I kissed her
And then I kissed her
[repeat and fade]
