8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell.
This song is in the key of C.
The loveliness of Paris seems somehow sadly gray,
The glory that was Rome is of another day.
I've been terribly alone and forgotten in Manhattan,
I'm going home to my city by the Bay.
I left my heart in San Francisco,
High on a hill, it calls to me.
To be where little cable cars climb halfway to the stars,
The morning fog may chill the air, I don't care.
My love waits there in San Francisco,
Above the blue and windy sea.
When I come home to you, San Francisco,
Your golden sun will shine for me.
