red hot chili peppers

Dani California è il primo singolo estratto dal doppio album Stadium Arcanum, il nono studio dei Red Hot Chili Peppers, rilasciato nel 2006. E’ stato il terzo singolo del gruppo ad entrare nella Top 10 americana (dopo i successi di Under The Bridge e Scar Tissue) nonchè in quella inglese. E’ valso ben due Grammy Awards quali Miglior Canzone Rock e Miglior Performance di duo o gruppo con voci.
Il titolo fa riferimento a Dani, una giovane ragazza vissuta in California. E’ un personaggio inventato dal cantante (e paroliere) Anthony Kiedis ai tempi dell’album Californication e fatto vivere attraverso i testi di alcune delle loro più famose canzoni. Dani California è il brano che ne annuncia la morte.

Red Hot Chili Peppers Dani California Testo Lyrics Accordi Chords

Am                    G
Getting born in the state of Mississippi,
Dm                              Am
Her Poppa was a copper and her Momma was a hippy,
Am           G
In Alabama she will swing a hammer,
Dm                     Am
Price you got to pay when you break the panorama,
Am          G                  Dm                 Am
She never knew that there was anything more than all,
Am               G           Dm               Am
     Well in the war your comfort to take me for,
 Am               G
Black bandanna, sweet Louisiana,
 Dm                        Am
Robbing on a bank in the state of Indiana,
 Am                 G
She's a runner, Rebel and a stunner,
 Dm                       Am
Come to Mirawais saying "Baby watcha gona?",
 Am          G                     Dm       Am
    Looking down the barrell of a hot bell 45,
 Am              G          Dm
   Just another way to survive

Chorus:

     F        C       Dm
California, Rest In Peace,
     F     C     Dm
Simultaneous release,
     F       C         Dm
California, show your teeth,
            F         C          Dm
She's my priestess, I'm your priest,
Dm
Yeah, yeah

Verse 2:
          Am      G
She's a lover, Baby and a fighter,
    Dm                         Am
Shoulda seen it coming when I got a little brighter,
Am                      G
    With a name like "Dani California",
 Dm                    Am
Day was gona come when I was gona mourn ya,
Am             G
    A little low,
                Dm              Am
That she was stealing another bread,
  Am
I love my baby to death

[Chorus]

Bridge:

 Bm             G     F#
Who knew the hardest side of you?
 Bm             G     F#
Who knew the hardest time to prove?
 Bm          G      F#
Too true to say goodbye to you
 Bm
Too true to say, say, say

Verse 3:

   Am               G
Pushed the fader, Gifted animator,
 Dm                   Am
One for the now, And eleven for the later,
  Am          G
Never made it up to Minnesota,
 Dm                      Am
Off the coated man, Was gona fill the quota,
 Am              G             Dm       Am
Down in the Badlands she was saving the best for last,
 Am
It only hurts when I laugh,
         G
Gone to fade

[Chorus X2]
