      D                                   G                              D

1. Sitting in the shade of a rain soaked orange blossom,

       A                                                                   G

    wondering which way I can turn my sorrow, now he’s left me behind.

        D                                     G                                     D

    Counting my bridges and wondering which way to cross them,

      A                                   A7                       D        - A

    thinking of a way I can stop myself from crying.

 

                        D

Thinking ‘bout love that brought us together,

                                                        A

thinking ‘bout love that keeps us apart,

                    D                        G

wondering why the stormy weather

                      A                           D

always finds me, the peaceful heart.

 

+  D - Bm - A - D

 

         D                              G                                    D

2. Good times, bad time, sometimes I used to be happy,

      A                                                                G  

    everything swung, even bells rung for me, life was going my way.

      D                                     G                                D

    Sunshine, moonshine, what’s the use of being happy,

                 A                                     A7                        D     - A

    though all the time you know it’s just got to fade away.
