On tonight’s edition of “Ask the Musician”, I have a YouTube email from Todd:

Hi, Could you please send me the tabs of “San Francisco”?  Thanks a lot, you are a great musician.

Thanks, Todd- with me, flattery gets you everywhere!  I don’t have the tabs (don’t really need them for this song), but here are the chords and lyrics:

Start on G

Em        C        G       D
If you're going to San Francisco,
Em         C         G               D
be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.
Em        G        C       G
If you're going to San Francisco,
G            Bm     Em               D
you're gonna meet some gentle people there.

Em            C       G       D
For those who come to San Francisco
Em     C         G             D
Summer-time will be a love-in there.
Em     G          C       G
In the streets of San Francisco,
G         Bm       Em               D
gentle people with flowers in their hair.

F
All across the nation,
F                         G
such a strange vibration, People in motion...
F
There's a whole generation,
F                       G                 D
with a new explanation, People in motion, people in motion.

Em            Am C    G        D

Summertime will be a love-in there
