Intro:  / A - - - / - - - - /

 

A (3)   

Sunshine go away today

                                  E     

I don't feel much like dancing

A (3)   

Some man's gone he's trying to run my life

                                      D (2) 

He don't know what he's asking

A (3)   

He tells me I better get in line

                                  E     

Can't hear what he's saying

          A (3)   

When I grow up I'm gonna make it mine

                                      D (2) 

These ain't dues I been paying

 

Chorus:

D                           A (hold)  

How much does it cost?  I'll buy it

       D                        A (hold)  

The time is all we've lost--I'll try it

 D                    A     

He can't even run his own life

           G                           E (2) 

I'll be damned if he'll run mine Sunshine

 

A (3)   

Sunshine go away today

                                  E     

I don't feel much like dancing

A (3)   

Some man's gone he's trying to run my life

                                      D (2) 

He don't know what he's asking

A (3)   

Working starts to make me wonder where

                                    E     

Fruits of what I do are going

A (3)   

He says in love and war all is fair

                                      D (2) 

He's got cards he ain't showin'

 

Chorus

 

A (3)   

Sunshine come on back another day

                                E     

I promise you I'll be singin

   A (3)   

This old world she's gonna turn around

                                D (2) 

Brand new bells'll be ringing
