MAT KEARNEY - Los Angeles

I loved the story that he told in the song, it felt really nice to know how he got to where he is now. The production of this song felt really nice and the background music was amazing. The choruses, along with the background vocals made it so much better to listen to. His vocals had a clear tone in this song, and that is exactly what makes this song so interesting to listen to.

[INTRO] F C F C F Am G
[VERSE]
F
Well, I pulled outta Nashville
           C
With the sun on my windshield
F                      C
Black 4Runner in the summer like a big deal
F
Apron at Starbucks
Am
What you gonna miss, B
G
Nah, I smiled out, over the Mississippi
       F
Got a friend out west
        C
With a little studio time
F
Futon in the valley
C
And the dream gone wild
F
Ralph's turkey in the pouch
      Am
And Ramen in the cup
             G
Check the funds in the account
G
When the pennies add up

         F                   C
Well, this fire in my chest weighs more like gold
F                  C
I'm try my best, Lord to let it unfold
F
For all on the quest
        Am
Let the story be told
G
Right from the soul

[CHORUS]
     F  C
Los Angeles
                F        C
Hit me at the heart of this
            F
Driving the 101
    Am                  G
My dream down to the bone
      F            C
Your smile, your kiss
              F       C
Every little part I miss
               F             Am             G
Baby, I'm trying to find a place where we belong

[VERSE]
          F
I got a buddy name Shawn
          C
And a minivan too
F
CDs at our feet
          C
How to tour no clue
F
Thousand cap room
            Am
And only eight people came
   G
And five on the guest list were under my name
F                                   C
But I slayed every one from the bottom of my heart
                   F           C
Maybe there'll be sixteen here next time we start
     F
So move with the wind
Am
Fifty dollars in my pocket
G
Wait for the sun
G
That silver-lining rocket
F
Two traveling souls
C
Living on the road
F                  C
To wayward kids livin' how they don't know
F
So we put it with the wind
    Am
We let it all unfold
G
Straight from the soul

[CHORUS]
     F  C
Los Angeles
                F        C
Hit me at the heart of this
            F
Driving the 101
    Am                  G
My dream down to the bone
      F            C
Your smile, your kiss
              F       C
Every little part I miss
               F             Am             G
Baby, I'm trying to find a place where we belong

[BRIDGE]
         F                           C
I got a lone baby darling and the world's on fire
     F                         C
Twenty K to make a record, now we're walking on a wire
F                            Am
Every favor that I got, I'm cashing in to use
G
Judson, JoJo, Sy, Lindsey, Robert;
G
Thank You
    F
So, Bullet was made
         C
And I'm scared out my brain
            F
And the song's getting played
      C
And everythin' starts to change
F                  Am
People showing up singing along to what I say
    G
And It feels like we might just be on our way
   F                      C
I think that's Letterman; he just said my name
           F
Check the crowd at the House of Blues,
               C
like they're cardboard fakes
F
Everyone's livin out loud
      Am
And down their mistakes
            G
And these schizophrenicc records that I love to make

[CHORUS]

Los Angeles
                F        C
Hit me at the heart of this
            F
Driving the 101
    Am                  G
My dream down to the bone
      F            C
Your smile, your kiss
              F       C
Every little part I miss
               F             Am             G
Baby, I'm trying to find a place where we belong
