Chorus:

G (2)             F9 (2)

Oh, to live on Sugar Mountain

G (2)                                F9 (2)
With the barkers and the colored balloons,

G (2)                        F9 (2)
You can't be twenty on Sugar Mountain

Dm (3)                                                                   G (2)
Though you're thinking that you're leaving there too soon,

Dm (2)                          G (2)
You're leaving there too soon.

 

            G               F9
It's so noisy at the fair

     F9                           G (2)

But all your friends are there

              G                    F9
And the candy floss you had

                F9                      G (2)
And your mother and your dad.

Chorus

 

Repeat Intro

               G                          F9
There's a girl just down the aisle,

           F9                          G (2)
Oh, to turn and see her smile.

              G                            F9
You can hear the words she wrote

            F9                     G (2)
As you read the hidden note.

Chorus

Repeat Intro

 

                   G                      F9
Now you're underneath the stairs

                  F9                       G (2)
And you're givin' back some glares

            G                     F9
To the people who you met

              F9               G (2)
And it's your first cigarette.

Chorus

               G                        F9
Now you say you're leavin' home

                   F9              G (2)
'Cause you want to be alone.

            G                  F9
Ain't it funny how you feel

                    F9                 G (2)
When you're findin' out it's real?

Chorus


G (2)             F9 (2)

Oh, to live on Sugar Mountain

G (2)                                F9 (2)
With the barkers and the colored balloons,

G (2)                        F9 (2)
You can't be twenty on Sugar Mountain

Dm (3)                                                                   G (2)
Though you're thinking that you're leaving there too soon

 

Repeat Intro (just one progression)
