El Cerrito Place
Charlie Robison

D    G    D    G

Verse One:
D                         G     D                            G
I been hangin' round this place, I been lookin' through your space
D                      G                          D    G
I been waitin' for you, I've been waitin' for you
D                        G   D                       G
All the places you would go, all the people that you know
D                       G                        D      G
I've been lookin' for you, I've been lookin' for you
D                                G
And all them pretty people up on El Cerrito Place
             D                                   G
They all got somethin' in their pockets, all got somethin' on their face
     D                             G
They roll down to La Brea where it meets the boulevard
D                             G
Singin' hallelujah while they dance over the stars
         D
They all think they're goin' far

Chorus:
             D                               G
Me I've been lookin' for you baby, I've been lookin' for you baby
          D                               G
I've been lookin' for you baby, I've been lookin' for you baby
        D               G               D            G
All night long, all night long, all night long

Verse Two:
         D                                       G
Somebody said they might have seen you where the ocean meets the land
             D                                   G
So I've been out here all night lookin' for your footprints in the sand
        D                            G
Did you hear the ocean singing, baby did you sing along
       D                             G
As you danced over the water to some ol' forgotten song,
         D
Were you even here at all?

Repeat Chorus

Instrumental (like verse two)

Verse Three (like verse two):
Somehow I wound up in the desert just after daylight
There's a Joshua Tree grows that little place you always liked
These pioneer town people they ain't got too much to say
and if they might have seen you they ain't givin' you away
Now it's been two days

Repeat Chorus

Instrumental (like verse two but longer)

Verse Four:
             D                            G
I think I'll go back to the city, back to El Cerrito Place
           D                           G
That's the last time I saw that pretty smile upon your face
          D
I've been lookin' for you baby

Just two chords the whole way through the whole song? Seems too simple, too basic. Anyone else think so? I don't pretend to be able to do better, but just looking for more. Thanks.
