[Verse 1]
        G                              G
Well, I used to like to ramble with my good-time friends and neighbors
      C                            G
Now I find I'd rather lie awake in bed
            G                         G
And I don't get to actin' mean when I keep my buzzes clean
             A                                  D
And keep the hard stuff and the whiskey from my head
        G                                         G
Well, I guess that's just the trouble when you're always seein' double
        C                                  G
And the lines are gettin' twice as hard to see
         C                             G            Em
I've had years I don't recall, but I'm told I had a ball
         A                D                 G
At least somebody did who looked a lot like me
 
[Chorus]
       G                        G
So I'm California sober as they say
    C                            G
And lately I can't find no other way
  C                               G               Em
I can't stay out and party like I did back in the day
       A          D             G
So I'm California sober as they say

[Verse 2]
        G                                G
Well, I heard out in the hills, they got pills to get their thrills
         C                               G
And they love their liquor down in New Orleans
      G                           G
Maybe for a New York minute, sugarcane will fit the bill
       A                                    D
But in no time flat, you're out of what you need
    G                              G
The old crew don't get together anymore these days much ever
      C                                            G
After some went straight and some went straight to jail
            C                          G                     Em
Now they're busy postin' vids and just tryin' to raise their kids
           A            D                G
Instead of raisin' holy hell and postin' bail
 
[Chorus]
          G                        G
Well, I'm California sober as they say
    C                            G
And lately I can't find no other way
  C                               G               Em
I can't stay out and party like I did back in the day
       A          D             G
So I'm California sober as they say

[Outro]
      G                       G
I was California sober 'til I thought the world was over
        C                             G
Now I'm sittin' on the roadside once again
          C                        G           Em
When that wagon passes by, I don't even bat an eye
            A7          D               G
Because the devil on my shoulder always wins
              C                        G           Em
When that ol' wagon passes by, I don't even bat an eye
Em            G           D               G
  Because the devil on my shoulder always wins

And I don't get to acting mean when I keep my buzzes clean
And keep the hard stuff and the whiskey from my head

Well, I guess that's just the trouble when you're always seeing double
And the lines are getting twice as hard to see
I've had years I don't recall, but I'm told I had a ball
At least someone did who looked a lot like me

So I'm California sober as they say
And lately I can't find no other way
I can't stay out and party like I did back in the day
So I'm California sober as they say

Aw, pick it, Willie

Well, I heard out in the hills, they got pills to get their thrills
And they love their liquor down in New Orleans
Maybe for a New York minute, sugarcane will fit the bill
But in no time flat, you're out of what you need

The old crew don't get together anymore these days much ever
After some went straight and some went straight to jail
Now they're busy posting vids and just trying to raise their kids
Instead of raising holy hell and posting bail

Well, I'm California sober as they say
And lately, I can find no other way
I can't stay out and party like I did back in the day
So I'm California sober as they say

I was California sober 'til I thought the world was over
Now I'm sitting on the roadside once again
When that wagon passes by, I don't even bat an eye
Because the devil on my shoulder always wins
When that ol' wagon passes by, I don't even bat an eye
'Cause the devil on my shoulder always wins
