A SUMMER SONG  -   Chad and Jeremy

 
Verse:   G  B#m  C  D
 
 Trees swayin' in the summer breeze
 Showin' off their silver leaves
 As we walked by
 
 Soft kisses on a summer's day
 Laughing all our cares away
 Just you and I
 
 Sweet sleepy warmth of summer nights
 Gazing at the distant lights
 In the starry sky
 
Chorus:
 
 C                             D                                G                                Em
 They say that all good things must end some day
 Am            D                        Em
 Autumn leaves must fall
     G                                               B7
 But don't you know that it hurts me so
     Em                               Bm  Am
 To say goodbye to you
 Em                                                D
 Wish you didn't have to go
 Em                 D
 No no no no
 
 And when the rain
 Beats against my window pane
 I'll think of summer days again
 And dream of you
 
 They say that all good things must end some day
 Autumn leaves must fall
 But don't you know that it hurts me so
 To say goodbye to you
 Wish you didn't have to go
 No no no no
 
 And when the rain
 Beats against my window pane
 I'll think of summer days again
 And dream of you
 And dream of you

The Summer Wind – Frank Sinatra

 

Eb                                                                                                    Bb7 
The summer wind, came blowin' in across the sea 
Bb7                                                                                                            Eb 
It lingered there, to touch your hair and walk with me 
Eb7                                                                              Ab                                Abm6     Eb 
All summer long, we sang a song and strolled on golden sand 
            Gm      Fm        Bb11  Bb7     Eb                       (C7) 
Two sweet hearts, and the        summer wind 


F                                                                                                                            C7 
Like painted kites, those days and nights went flyin' by 
C7                                                                                                   F 
The world was new, beneath a blue umbrella sky 
F7                                                                        Bb                        Bbm6    F 
Then softer than, a piper man one day it called to you 
            Am  Gm C11 C7              F                                (D7) 
I lost you          to   the              summer wind 

G                                                                                                                           D7 
The autumn wind, and the winter wind have come and gone 
D7                                                                                                       G 
And still the days, those lonely days go on and on 
G7                                                                                          C                                      Cm6 (G) 
And guess who sighs his lullabies through nights that never end 
Bm   Am Dm D7 
My   fickle     friend, 
G6 G 
      The summer wind, the summer wind, the summer wind 

 

 

 


 

 

Soak Up The Sun – Sheryl CroW

 

Intro: E   B A 

E                             B              A
My friend the communist 
Holds meetings in his RV 
I can't afford his gas 
So I'm stuck here watching TV 
I don't have digital 
I don't have diddly squat 
It's not having what you want 
It's wanting what you've got 


E   B   F#m/ A   B
I'm gonna soak up the sun 
I'm gonna tell everyone 
To lighten up (I'm gonna tell 'em that) 
I've got no one to blame 
For every time I feel lame 
I'm looking up 

 

E                             B              A
I'm gonna soak up the sun 
I'm gonna soak up the sun 


E                             B              A
I've got a crummy job 
It don't pay near enough 
To buy the things it takes 
To win me some of your love 
Every time I turn around 
I'm looking up, you're looking down 
Maybe something's wrong with you 
That makes you act the way you do 


E   B   F#m/ A   B
I'm gonna soak up the sun 
I'm gonna tell everyone 
To lighten up (I'm gonna tell 'em that) 
I've got no one to blame 
For every time I feel lame 
I'm looking up 

 

E                             B              A
I'm gonna soak up the sun 
I'm gonna soak up the sun 


E   B   F#m/ A   B
I'm gonna soak up the sun 
While it's still free 
I'm gonna soak up the sun 
Before it goes out on me 


E                             B              A
Don't have no master suite 
I'm still the king of me 
You have a fancy ride, but baby 
I'm the one who has the key 


E B D A 
Every time I turn around 
I'm looking up, you're looking down 
Maybe something's wrong with you 
That makes you act the way you do 
Maybe I am crazy too 


E   B   F#m/ A   B
I'm gonna soak up the sun 
I'm gonna tell everyone 
To lighten up (I'm gonna tell 'em that) 
I've got no one to blame 
For every time I feel lame 
I'm looking up 
I'm gonna soak up the sun 
I'm gonna soak up the sun 


E   B   F#m/ A   B
I'm gonna soak up the sun 
Got my 45 on 
So I can rock on
