8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
Verse is in the key of Em, chorus is in C.
You are talking of Heaven,
When you talk of the West.
As a sample of Heaven,
California is best.
I'm getting fed up on the rain and snow.
My weary heart is singing "Westward Ho".
Pulling out at eleven,
For a rosecovered nest.  Oh!

Golden Gate,  I'm comin' to "ya",
Golden Gate, Sing "Hallelujah".
I'll live in the sun,  Love in the moon,
Where ev'ry month is June.
A little sun-kissed blonde, Is smilin' my way.
Just beyond,  The Lincoln Highway.
Going strong now it won't be long now.
Open up that Golden Gate.
