FOREWORD

 

This is a sixth volume of lyrics to popular songs, to assist learning to play the guitar by ear, as described in the article, How to Play the Guitar by Ear (for Mathematicians and Physicists), posted at Internet web site http://www.foundationwebsite.org .  As discussed in the foreword to Volume 1, the purpose of assembling these lyrics is to provide the student with a large number of songs from which he may choose ones for which he knows the melody and enjoys singing.  Since everyone’s taste is different, and the student may not be familiar with the songs that I know (many from decades ago), it is the intention to provide a large number of popular songs from which the student may choose.  I believe that learning the guitar is facilitated by practicing a number of different songs in a practice session, and playing each one only a couple of times, perhaps in a couple of different keys.  In order to do this, it is important to have a large collection of lyrics available.  This volume is a miscellaneous collection of songs, mainly older popular songs from the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s.

 

As in Volume I, I have deliberately omitted noting the chords to be played on each song, if it is my opinion that the beginning student should be able to figure them out easily – e.g., chords are omitted for most two-chord or three-chord songs.  The purpose of this omission is to provide the student with the opportunity of learning to determine which chord to use at each point of the song, quickly and automatically.  For more difficult songs, I indicate some of the chords, and for some songs, I provide chords for the entire song.  Where I indicate only a few chords, it is important to remember, as noted on the cover, that it is assumed that all songs are sung in the key of A, unless otherwise indicated.  (There are a few songs for which the chords are relatively easy, but I have indicated them nevertheless.  These are songs that I was to sing in public for some occasion, and I did not wish to make a mistake.)

 

In some cases, I have found songs already chorded, but in a fashion that is not convenient for the guitar (e.g., in the key of Bflat, or with many exotic chords).  In most cases, I have removed the chords or re-chorded them.  In some cases, however, I have left the songs in “strange” keys or chordings, to be modified as an exercise by the student.

 

Many of the songs of this volume are copyrighted by others.  In their original or available forms, however, they are not helpful for the beginning student of guitar (e.g., they are arranged for piano, or are written in a key that is not natural for the guitar, or are fully annotated with chords, or are in small print).  To facilitate reading by the student as he plays the guitar, they are presented here in a large, easy-to-read font and with a strong attempt to keep the song to a single page in length.  To facilitate his progress in learning to play by ear, the chords have been removed in all simple cases.  It is for these reasons that I have, in cognizance of and in the spirit of the “fair use” doctrine of copyright law, reformatted these songs and presented them in the present volume.

 

Good luck!

SONGWRITERS: QUEEN LILI'UOKALANI (1878), ENGLISH LYRICS ARRANGED BY CHARLES E. KING (1923)

 

Single-verse version (as a farewell), Elvis Presley, Marty Robbins:

 

(G) ALOHA OE, (D) ALOHA OE,

E KE (A) ONAONA NOHO IKA (D) LIPO

A (G) FOND EMBRACE, A (D) HOI AE AU,

UN(A)TIL WE MEET A(D)GAIN.

 

FAREWELL TO THEE, FAREWELL TO THEE,

THOU CHARMING ONE WHO DWELLST AMONG THE BOW`RS.

ONE FOND EMBRACE, BEFORE I NOW DEPART,

UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN.

 

Full version:

 

PROUDLY SWEPT THE RAIN BY THE CLIFFS

AS IT GLIDED THROUGH THE TREES

STILL FOLLOWING EVER THE BUD

THE `AHIHI LEHUA OF THE VALE

 

CHORUS:

FAREWELL TO YOU, FAREWELL TO YOU

THE CHARMING ONE WHO DWELLS IN THE SHADED BOWERS

ONE FOND EMBRACE,

'ERE I DEPART

UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN

 

SWEET MEMORIES COME BACK TO ME

BRINGING FRESH REMEMBRANCES

OF THE PAST

DEAREST ONE, YES, YOU ARE MINE OWN

FROM YOU, TRUE LOVE SHALL NEVER DEPART

 

I HAVE SEEN AND WATCHED YOUR LOVELINESS

THE SWEET ROSE OF MAUNAWILI

AND 'TIS THERE THE BIRDS OF LOVE DWELL

AND SIP THE HONEY FROM YOUR LIPS

 

Ha`aheo ka ua i nâ pali

Ke nihi a`ela i ka nahele

E hahai (uhai) ana paha i ka liko

Pua `âhihi lehua o uka

 

Hui:

Aloha `oe, aloha `oe

E ke onaona noho i ka lipo

One fond embrace,

A ho`i a`e au

Until we meet again

 

`O ka hali`a aloha i hiki mai

Ke hone a`e nei i

Ku`u manawa

`O `oe nô ka`u ipo aloha

A loko e hana nei

 

Maopopo ku`u `ike i ka nani

Nâ pua rose o Maunawili

I laila hia`ia nâ manu

Miki`ala i ka nani o ka lipo

 

From squareone: Despite the common story that the Queen composed "Aloha Oe" while imprisoned in the Palace during the overthrow of the monarchy, George Kanahele in Hawaiian Music and Musicians states it was common knowledge at the time that she wrote the song during a horseback ride to the ranch of Edwin Boyd in Maunawili, inspired by the giving of a lei to one of her party by a Hawaiian girl at the gate of the ranch.

 

From Jonathan Wong: This song of farewell between two lovers is the most famous of the Queen's compositions, written in 1878. The tune of the verse resembles "The Rock Beside the Sea", composed by Charles Crozat Converse and published in Philadephia, 1857. The melody of the chorus is remarkably close to the chorus of George Frederick Root's composition, "There's Music In The Air", published in 1854. There is a manuscript of "Aloha Oe" in Queen Lili'uokalani's handwriting in the Bishop Museum. Lahilahi Webb and Virginia Dominis Koch tell of a visit by the queen and her attendants to Maunawili Ranch, the home of Edwin Boyd on windward Oahu. As they started their return trip to Honolulu on horseback up the steep Pali trail, the queen turned to admire the view of Kaneohe Bay. She witnessed a particularly affectionate farewell between Colonel James Boyd of her party and a lovely young girl from Maunawili. As they rode up the steep cliff and into the swirling winds, she started to hum this melody weaving words into a romantic song. At the top of the pali, a cloud hung over the mountain peak and slowly floated down Nu`uanu Valley. The queen continued to hum and completed her song as they rode the winding trail down the valley back to Honolulu. Translation by Lili`uokalani.

~Hawaiian words~

 

Ha`aheo ka ua ina pali,

Ke nihi aela ka nahele

E hahai ana i ka liko,

Pua ahihi lehua o uka.

 

Aloha Oe,

Aloha Oe,

E ke onaona noho ika lipo

A fond embrace,

a hoi ae au,

Until we meet again.

 

O ka halia`loha i hiki mai,

Ke hone ae nei ku`u manawa.

O oe no ka`u ipon aloha,

A lo ko e hana nei.

 

Aloha Oe,

Aloha Oe,

E ke onaona noho ika lipo

A fond embrace,

a hoi ae au,

Until we meet again.

 

Mao popo ku`u ike i ka nani,

Na pua rose o Maunawili,

Ilaila hiaai na manu

Miki ala i ka nani o ka liko.

 

Aloha Oe,

Aloha Oe,

E ke onaona noho ika lipo

A fond embrace,

a hoi ae au,

Until we meet again...

 

~ English ~

 

Proudly swept the rain cloud by the cliffs,

As on it glided through the trees

Still following ever the `liko`

The `Ahihi lehua` of the vale.

 

Farewell to thee,

Farewell to thee,

Thou charming one who dwellst among the bow`rs.

One fond embrace,

Before I now depart,

Until we meet again.

 

Thus sweet memories come back to me,

Bringing fresh remembrance of the past

Dearest one, yes, thou art mine own,

From thee, true love shall ne`er depart.

 

Farewell to thee,

Farewell to thee,

Thou charming one who dwellst among the bow`rs.

One fond embrace,

Before I now depart,

Until we meet again.

 

I have seen and watched thy loveliness,

Thou sweet Rose of Maunawili,

And `tis there the birds oft love to dwell

And sip the honey from thy lips.

 

Farewell to thee,

Farewell to thee,

Thou charming one who dwellst among the bow`rs.

One fond embrace,

Before I now depart,

Until we meet again...

DOIN' WHAT COMES NATUR'LLY

IRVING BERLIN (FROM “ANNIE GET YOUR GUN”)

 

From Wikipedia: Annie Get Your Gun is a musical with lyrics and music written by Irving Berlin and a book by Dorothy Fields and her brother Herbert Fields. The story is a fictionalized version of the life of Annie Oakley (1860–1926), a sharpshooter who starred in Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show, and her romance with sharpshooter Frank Butler.

 

The 1946 Broadway production was a hit, and the musical had long runs in both New York (1,147 performances) and London, spawning revivals, a 1950 film version and television versions. Songs that became hits include "There's No Business Like Show Business", "Doin' What Comes Natur'lly", "You Can't Get a Man with a Gun", "They Say It's Wonderful", and "Anything You Can Do."

I'M A ROVER AND SELDOM SOBER

I'M A ROVER, OF HIGH DEGREE;

AND WHEN I'M DRINKING, I'M ALWAYS THINKING

NOT A STAR TO BE SEEN ABOVE,

I MUST BE GUIDED WITHOUT A STUMBLE

INTO THE ARMS OF MY OWN TRUE LOVE.

 

HE STEPPED UP TO HER BEDROOM WINDOW,

KNEELING GENTLY UPON A STONE;

HE RAT-TAT-TAT AT HER BEDROOM-WINDOW

"DARLING DEAR, DO YOU LIE ALONE?"

 

SHE OPENED THE DOOR WITH THE GREATEST PLEASURE,

SHE OPENED THE DOOR AND LET HIM IN,

THEY BOTH SHOOK HANDS AND EMBRACED EACH OTHER

UNTIL THE MORNIN' THEY LAY AS ONE.

 

THE COCKS WERE CRAWIN', THE BIRDS WERE WHISTLING

THE BURNS THEY RAN FREE ABOVE THE BRAE

"REMEMBER, LASS, I'M A PLOUGHMAN LADDIE

AND THE FARMER I MUST OBEY."

SHE HASN’T BEEN KISSED IN FORTY YEARS

SHE MIGHT HAVE BEEN OLD FOR ALL WE KNEW

WHEN NAPOLEON FLOPPED AT WATERLOO…

 

OH, FARMER HAVE YOU A DAUGHTER FAIR

WHO WASHES THE FAMILY UNDERWEAR

 

SHE GOT THE PALMS AND THE CROIX-DE-GUERRE

FOR WASHING SOLDIERS’ UNDERWEAR

 

THE GENERAL GOT THE CROIX-DE-GUERRE

THE SON-OF-A-GUN WAS NEVER THERE

 

THE OFFICERS GET ALL THE STEAK

AND ALL WE GET IS THE BELLY ACHE

 

THE MPS SAY THEY WON THE WAR

STANDING ON GUARD AT THE CAFÉ DOOR

 

I DIDN’T CARE WHAT BECAME OF ME

SO I WENT AND JOINED THE INFANTRY

 

THEY SAY THEY MECHANIZED THE WAR

SO WHAT THE HELL ARE WE MARCHING FOR

 

THE LITTLE MARINE IN LOVE WITH HIS NURSE

HE'S TAKEN HER NOW FOR BETTER OR WORSE

LYRICS BY OSCAR HAMMERSTEIN II, MUSIC BY RICHARD RODGERS

(C) OKLAHOMA, WHERE THE (G7) WIND

COMES (GDIM) SWEEPIN' DOWN THE PLAIN (G7)

AND THE (C) WAVIN' WHEAT CAN (F) SURE SMELL (Fm) SWEET

WHEN THE (C) WIND COMES (A7) RIGHT BEHIND THE (D7) RAIN (G7)

 

OKLAHOMA, EVERY NIGHT MY HONEY LAMB AND I

SIT ALONE AND TALK AND WATCH A HAWK

MAKIN' LAZY CIRCLES IN THE SKY

 

WE (F) KNOW WE BELONG TO THE (C) LAND

AND THE (G) LAND WE BE(D7)LONG TO IS (G7) GRAND!

ON TOP OF OLD SMOKY

KENTUCKY MOUNTAIN FOLKSONG

 

(G) ON TOP OF OLD (C) SMOKY, ALL COVERED WITH (G) SNOW

I LOST MY TRUE (D) LOVER, BY A-COURTING TOO (G) SLOW

 

WELL, COURTING'S A PLEASURE, AND PARTING IS GRIEF

BUT A FALSE-HEARTED LOVER, IS WORSE THAN A THIEF

 

A THIEF HE WILL ROB YOU, AND TAKE ALL YOU HAVE

BUT A FALSE-HEARTED LOVER, WILL SEND YOU TO THE GRAVE

 

THE GRAVE WILL DECAY YOU, AND TURN YOU TO DUST

AND WHERE IS THE YOUNG MAN, A POOR GIRL CAN TRUST?

(NOT ONE GIRL IN A HUNDRED, A POOR BOY CAN TRUST)

 

THEY'LL HUG YOU AND KISS YOU, AND TELL YOU MORE LIES

THAN THE CROSSTIES ON THE RAILROAD, OR THE STARS IN THE SKIES

 

THEY'LL TELL YOU THEY LOVE YOU, JUST TO GIVE YOUR HEART EASE

BUT THE MINUTE YOUR BACK'S TURNED, THEY'LL COURT WHOM THEY PLEASE

 

SO COME ALL YOU YOUNG MAIDENS, AND LISTEN TO ME

NEVER PLACE YOUR AFFECTION, ON A GREEN WILLOW TREE

 

FOR THE LEAVES THEY WILL WITHER, AND THE ROOTS THEY WILL DIE

AND YOUR TRUE LOVE WILL LEAVE YOU, AND YOU'LL NEVER KNOW WHY


ON TOP OF OLD SMOKEY

ARR. H. BELAFONTE

 

(G) ON TOP OF OLD (C) SMOKEY, ALL COVERED WITH (G) SNOW

I LOST MY TRUE (D) LOVER, FOR COURTING TOO (G) SLOW

YES, COURTING'S A PLEASURE, PARTING IS GRIEF

AND A FALSE-HEARTED LOVER, IS WORSE THAN A THIEF

 

SHE'LL KISS YOU, SHE'LL HUG YOU, AND TELL YOU MORE LIES

THAN CROSSTIES ON A RAILROAD, OR STARS IN THE SKIES

LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT MY BABY, SHE'S LIKE BAD BRANDY WINE

THE FIRST TIME I KISSED HER, SHE DROVE ME OUT OF HER MIND

SHE'S A BALTIMORE SPECIAL, GOT A FINE BROWN FRAME

WHEN YOU SEE HER IN MOTION, EVIL WOMAN IS HER NAME

 

DID I TELL YOU ABOUT EASTMORE? LORD, WHAT A SHAME

HE RUN OFF WITH MY BABY, AND SCANDALIZED MY NAME

 

WELL I WENT TO THE MOUNTAINTOP, TO CLAIM MY BABY BACK

SHE WAS GONE WITH THAT EASTMORE, DOWN THAT LONESOME RAILROAD TRACK

 

IF I EVER SEE THAT EASTMORE, I'LL SHOOT HIM WITH MY GUN

I'LL CUT HIM WITH MY LONG GILES(?), AND TELL THAT PIMP TO RUN

 

LITTLE LIZA, LITTLE LIZA, I COULDN'T SLEEP LAST NIGHT

COME ON BACK HOME BABY, EVERYTHING WILL BE ALL RIGHT

 

LET ME TELL YOU, LET ME TELL YOU, I DIDN'T CARE WHAT YOU SAY

IF MY WOMAN EVER COMES BACK, I'LL GIVE MY LIFE AWAY

 

IF YOU EVER SEE A DARK CLOUD, ROLLING IN THE SKY

IT'S MY WOMAN GONE TO HEAVEN, WITH A TEARDROP IN HER EYE

 

ON TOP OF OLD SMOKEY, ALL COVERED WITH SNOW

I LOST MY TRUE LOVER, FOR COURTING TOO SLOW

SEVENTY SIX TROMBONES

MEREDITH WILSON (FROM THE MUSIC MAN)

 

SEVENTY (G) SIX TROMBONES LED THE (D7) BIG PARADE

THEY WERE FOLLOWED BY (G7) ROWS AND ROWS

OF THE (C) FINEST VIRTU(A7)OSOS

THE (D) CREAM OF (A7) EVERY FAMOUS (D) BAND (A7)(D7)

 

SEVENTY SIX TROMBONES CAUGHT THE MORNING SUN

WITH A HUNDRED AND TEN CORNETS RIGHT BEHIND

THERE WERE MORE THAN A THOUSAND REEDS SPRINGING UP LIKE WEEDS

THERE WERE HORNS OF EVERY SHAPE AND KIND

 

THERE WERE (C) COPPER BOTTOM (F) TYMPA(C)NI IN (G7) HORSE PLATOONS

THUNDERING, (B7) THUNDERING, (C) ALL ALONG THE WAY (G7)

(C) DOUBLE BELL EU(FB)PHONI(C)UMS AND (G) BIG BASSOONS

(D7) EACH BASSOON HAVING HIS (G) BIG (D7) FAT (G7) SAY

 

THERE WERE FIFTY MOUNTED CANNON IN THE BATTERY

THUNDERING, THUNDERING, LOUDER THAN BEFORE

CLARINETS OF EVERY SIZE AND TRUMPETERS WHO'D IMPROVISE

A FULL OCTAVE HIGHER THAN THE SCORE

 

(INSTRUMENTAL)

 

SEVENTY SIX TROMBONES LED THE BIG PARADE

WHEN THE ORDER TO MARCH RANG OUT LOUD AND CLEAR

STARTING OFF WITH A BIG BANG BONG ON A CHINESE GONG

BY A BIG BANG BONGER AT THE REAR

 

SEVENTY SIX TROMBONES HIT THE COUNTERPOINT

WHILE A HUNDRED AND TEN CORNETS PLAYED THE AIR

THEN I MODESTLY TOOK MY PLACE AS THE ONE AND ONLY BASS

AND I OOMPAHED UP AND DOWN THE SQUARE

A TROPICAL (E7) MOON, A SLEEPY LA(A)GOON, AND (D) YOU.

THE DAY WON’T BREAK, AND IT WILL ALWAYS BE TONIGHT.

MOSTLY WHERE COTTON GROWS.  NOW, WHERE HE COMES FROM, HM, NOBODY REALLY KNOWS. 

BUT THIS IS THE WAY THE STORY GOES.

 

THE FARMER SAID TO THE BOLL WEEVIL "I SEE YOU'RE ON THE SQUARE"  BOLL WEEVIL SAID TO

THE FARMER "SAY YEP! MY WHOLE DARN FAMILY'S HERE"

<WE GOTTA HAVE A HOME, GOTTA HAVE A HOME>

 

THE FARMER SAID TO THE BOLL WEEVIL "SAY, WHY DO YOU PICK MY FARM?"  THE WEEVIL JUST

LAUGHED AT THE FARMER 'N' SAID "WE AIN'T GONNA DO YA MUCH HARM"

<WE'RE LOOKING FOR A HO-O-O-O-O,-O-O-O, -O-O-O, O-O-OME"

 

AND THE BOLL WEEVIL SPOTTED A LIGHTNING BUG.  HE SAID "HEY, I'D LIKE TO MAKE A TRADE

WITH YOU.  BUT, YA SEE IF I WAS A LIGHTNING BUG, I'D SEARCH THE WHOLE NIGHT THROUGH"

<SEARCHIN' FOR A HOME, I'D HAVE ME PLENTY OF HOME"

 

AND THE BOLL WEEVIL CALLED THE FARMER, 'N' HE SAID "YA BETTER SELL YOUR OLD MACHINES,

'CAUSE WHEN I'M THROUGH WITH YOUR COTTON, HEH, YOU CAN'T EVEN BUY GASOLINE."

<I'M GONNA STAKE ME A HOME, GOTTA HAVE A HOME>

 

AND THE BOLL WEEVIL SAID TO THE FARMER, SAID " FARMER, I'D LIKE TO WISH YOU WELL." 

FARMER SAID TO THE BOLL WEEVIL, "YEAH, AN' I WISH THAT YOU WERE IN ****"

HE LOADED UP HIS SHOTGUN WITH NAILS AND DYNAMITE

HE WAITED FOR THE CAT TO COME AROUND

NINETY-SEVEN PIECES OF THE MAN IS ALL THEY FOUND (CHORUS)

 

HE GAVE IT TO A LITTLE BOY WITH A DOLLAR NOTE

TOLD HIM FOR TO TAKE IT TO THE ONE HE LOVED THE BEST

FIRST THE TRAIN HIT THE CURVE, THEN IT JUMPED THE RAIL

NOT A SOUL WAS LEFT BEHIND TO TELL THE GRUESOME TALE (CHORUS)

 

THE CAT, IT HAD SOME COMPANY ONE NIGHT OUT IN THE YARD

SOMEONE THREW A BOOT-JACK AND THEY THREW IT MIGHTY HARD

IT CAUGHT THE CAT BEHIND THE EAR, SHE THOUGHT IT RATHER SLIGHT

WHEN ALONG CAME A BRICKBAT AND KNOCKED THE CAT OUT OF SIGHT (CHORUS)

 

AWAY ACROSS THE OCEAN THEY DID SEND THE CAT AT LAST

VESSEL ONLY OUT A DAY AND MAKING WATER FAST

PEOPLE ALL BEGAN TO PRAY, THE BOAT BEGAN TO TOSS

A GREAT BIG GUST OF WIND CAME BY AND EVERY SOUL WAS LOST (CHORUS)

 

ON A TELEGRAPH WIRE, SPARROWS SITTING IN A BUNCH

THE CAT WAS FEELING HUNGRY, THOUGHT SHE'D LIKE 'EM FOR A LUNCH

CLIMBING SOFTLY UP THE POLE, AND WHERE SHE REACHED THE TOP

PUT HER FOOT UPON THE ELECTRIC WIRE, WHICH TIED HER IN A KNOT (CHORUS)

 

THE CAT WAS A POSSESSOR OF A FAMILY OF ITS OWN

WITH SEVEN LITTLE KITTENS, TILL THERE CAME A CYCLONE

BLEW THE HOUSES ALL APART AND TOSSED THE CAT AROUND

WHEN YOU AND I WERE YOUNG, MAGGIE

GEORGE W. JOHNSON AND JAMES AUSTIN BUTTERFIELD

 

(A) I WANDERED TO(A7)DAY TO THE (D) HILL, MAGGIE

TO (A) WATCH THE SCENE BE(E7)LOW

THE (A) CREEK AND THE (A7) CREAKING OLD (D) MILL, MAGGIE

AS (A) WE USED TO (E7) LONG, LONG A(A)GO

 

THE (D) GREEN GROVE IS GONE FROM THE (A) HILL, MAGGIE

WHERE (E7) FIRST THE (B7) DAISIES (E7) SPRUNG

THAT (A) CREAKING OLD (A7) MILL IS (D) STILL, MAGGIE

SINCE (A) YOU AND (E7) I WERE (A) YOUNG

 

(LIKE 1ST) OH THEY SAY THAT I’M (A7) FEEBLE WITH (D) AGE, MAGGIE

MY (A) STEPS ARE MUCH SLOWER THAN (E7) THEN

MY (A) FACE IS A (A7) WELL-WRITTEN (D) PAGE, MAGGIE

AND (A) TIME ALL A(E7)LONE WAS THE (A) PEN

 

(LIKE 2ND) THEY (D) SAY WE HAVE OUR DIFFERENT (A) TIME, MAGGIE

AS THEY (E7) HEAR OUR (B7) SONG THAT WE (E7) SUNG

BUT TO (A) ME YOU'RE THE (A7) SAME AS YOU (D) WERE, MAGGIE

WHEN (A) YOU AND (E7) I WERE (A) YOUNG

WHEN (A) YOU AND (E7) I WERE (A) YOUNG


WHEN YOU’RE SMILING

FRANK SINATRA, LOUIS ARMSTRONG, DEAN MARTIN

SONGWRITERS: LARRY SHAY, MARK FISHER, JOE GOODWIN

 

(G) WHEN YOU'RE SMILING, WHEN YOU'RE SMILING

THE WHOLE WORLD (E7) SMILES WITH (Am) YOU

WHEN YOU'RE LAUGHING, WHEN YOU'RE (Am7) LAUGHING

THE (D7) SUN COMES SHINING (G) THROUGH

 

BUT WHEN YOU'RE (G7) CRYING, YOU (C) BRING ON THE RAIN

SO STOP YOUR (A7) SIGHING, BE (D7) HAPPY AGAIN

KEEP ON (G) SMILING, CAUSE WHEN YOU'RE (E7) SMILING

THE (Am) WHOLE (Am7) WORLD (D7) SMILES WITH (G) YOU (repeat)

 

 

 


WUNDERBAR

COLE PORTER (FROM “KISS ME, KATE”)

 

(G) WUNDERBAR, WUNDERBAR! WHAT A PERFECT (C) NIGHT FOR (G) LOVE

HERE AM (D7) I, HERE YOU ARE, WHY, IT'S (G) TRULY WUNDERBAR!

WUNDERBAR, WUNDERBAR! WE'RE ALONE AND (C) HAND IN (G) GLOVE

NOT A (D7) CLOUD NEAR OR FAR, WHY IT'S (G) MORE THAN WUNDERBAR!

 

OH, I (C) CARE, DEAR, FOR YOU (G) MADLY

AND I (C) LONG, DEAR, FOR YOUR (G) KISS

I WOULD (A) DIE, DEAR, FOR YOU (D) GLADLY

LIFE’S DI(A)VINE, DEAR! AND YOU'RE (D7) MINE, DEAR!

 

WUNDER(G)BAR, WUNDERBAR! THERE'S OUR FAVO(C)RITE STAR A(G)BOVE

WHAT A (D7) BRIGHT SHINING STAR, LIKE OUR (G) LOVE, IT'S WUNDERBAR!

YES MA'AM, YOU'RE INVITED (A) NOW

BY THE WAY, BY THE (D) WAY, WHEN WE (B7) REACH THE PREACHER WE'LL (E) SAY

YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE

GENE AUTRY

JIMMIE DAVIS AND CHARLES MITCHELL

 

(A) THE OTHER NIGHT DEAR AS I LAY SLEEPING

I DREAMED I (D) HELD YOU IN MY (A) ARMS

WHEN I A(D)WOKE DEAR I WAS MIS(A)TAKEN

AND I HUNG MY (E) HEAD AND (A) CRIED

 

(CHORUS) YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE, MY ONLY SUNSHINE

YOU MAKE ME HAPPY WHEN SKIES ARE GRAY

YOU'LL NEVER KNOW DEAR HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU

PLEASE DON'T TAKE MY SUNSHINE AWAY

 

I'LL ALWAYS LOVE YOU AND MAKE YOU HAPPY

IF YOU WILL ONLY SAY THE SAME

BUT IF YOU LEAVE ME TO LOVE ANOTHER

YOU'LL REGRET IT ALL SOMEDAY (CHORUS)

 

YOU TOLD ME ONCE DEAR YOU REALLY LOVED ME

AND NO ONE ELSE COULD COME BETWEEN

BUT NOW YOU'VE LEFT ME AND LOVE ANOTHER

YOU HAVE SHATTERED ALL MY DREAMS (CHORUS)
