I wrote this tab because the other tabs at UG miss vital parts 
including the outro, and some are even wrong.

I recommend you to hear the song a few times through before you 
play this for correct timings etc.

Standard tuning, although you may want to drop d the strings 
(e becomes d, a becomes g...)


INTRO:

e: - 5 - - 6 - - - 8 -
b: - 6 - - 7 - - - 9 -
g: - 7 - - 8 - - -10 -
d: - 7 - - 8 - - -10 -
a: - 5 - - 6 - - - 8 -
e: - 5 - - 6 - - - 8 -
...Dmin...D#min...Fmin

Single notes (held) *play this twice*


e: 5 5 5 - 6 6 6 - 8 8 8
b: 6 6 6 - 7 7 7 - 9 9 9
g: 7 7 7 - 8 8 8 - 101010
d: 7 7 7 - 8 8 8 - 101010
a: 5 5 5 - 6 6 6 - 8 8 8
e: 5 5 5 - 6 6 6 - 8 8 8
...Dmin....D#min...Fmin

Again, these are single notes, but not held. 
*play this twice*


1st VERSE:
e: - 5 - - 6 - - 8 -
b: - 6 - - 7 - - 9 -
g: - 7 - - 8 - -10 -
d: - 7 - - 8 - -10 -
a: - 5 - - 6 - - 8 -
e: - 5 - - 6 - - 8 -
...Dmin....D#min...Fmin

Now strum the same pattern *play two times*

e: - 5 - - 6 - - 5 - - 3 - - 0
b: - 6 - - 7 - - 6 - - 4 - - 1
g: - 7 - - 7 - - 7 - - 5 - - 2
d: - 7 - - 8 - - 7 - - 5 - - 2
a: - 5 - - 6 - - 5 - - 3 - - 0
e: - 5 - - 6 - - 5 - - 3 - - 0
...Dmin..D#min..Dmin..Cmin..Amin *play once*

Strumming.

Repeat this sequence for the entire verse.


CHORUS:

e: - 55 - 55- 55555555 - 8888888
b: - 66 - 66- 66666666 - 6666666
g: - 77 - 77- 77777777 - 8888888
d: - 77 - 77- 77777777 - 5555555
a: - 55 - 55- 55555555 - 5555555
e: - 55 - 55- 55555555 - 5555555

Repeat this once for the entire chorus.


2nd VERSE:
repeat the 1st verse sequence

[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/d/dead_kennedys/california_uber_alles_tab_ver_2.html ]
2nd CHORUS:
repeat the chorus pattern


BRIDGE:

e: - 55555555 - 3333- 0000
b: - 66666666 - 4444- 1111
g: - 77777777 - 5555- 2222

a: - 55555555 - 3333- 0000
e: - 55555555 - 3333- 0000

play this 12 times, speeding up the pattern every 4 times.

After this, repeat the chorus for a final time.


OUTRO:
In my opinion, the best and most classic outro ever. 
Simple, yet brilliant.

e: 5 5555 555 3 333 8 8 8 8 8 8
b: 6 6666 666 4 444 9 9 9 9 9 9

e: 5 5555 555 3 333 8 8 8 8 8 8

play this three times

e: 5 5555 5555

g: 7 7777 7777
d: 7 7777 7777
a: 5 5555 5555

LYRICS:

1st verse:

I am governor Jerry Brown
My aura smiles and never frowns
Soon I will be president
Carter power will soon go 'way
I will be fuhrer one day
I will command all of you
Your kids will meditate in school
YOUR KIDS WILL MEDITATE IN SCHOOL!

(chorus)
California Über Alles
California ÜÜÜÜber Alles
Über Alles California
Über Alles Caaaaalifornia

(2nd verse)
Zen fascists will control you
100 per cent natural
You will jog for the master race
and always wear the happy face
You close your eyes can't happen here
Big Bro' on white horse is near
Hippies won't come back you say
Mellow out or you will pay
MELLOW OUT OR YOU WILL PAY!!!

(chorus)
California Über Alles
California ÜÜÜÜber Alles
Über Alles California
Über Alles Caaaaalifornia

(bridge)
Now it is 1984
Know knock at your front door
It's the suede denim secret police
They have come for your uncool niece
(faster)
You'll go quietly to the camp
You'd look nice as a drawstring lamp
Don't you worry it's only a shower
For your clothes here's a pretty flower!
(even faster)
DIE ON ORGANIC POISON GAS
SERPENT'S EGG ALREADY HAS HATCHED
YOU WILL CHOKE YOU LITTLE CLOWN
WHEN YOU MESS WITH PRESIDENT BROWN
WHEN YOU MESSS WITH PRESSIDENTT BROWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(chorus)
California Über Alles
California ÜÜÜÜber Alles
Über Alles California
Über Alles Caaaaalifornia
