        Summer comes to Springville Hill

     

    / G - - - / x4

     

        G             G/F#       Em (2)

    A barony of ivy in the trees

         G                    G/F#             Em (2)

    Expanding out its empire by degrees and all the branches burst to

        C    C/B           Am7    Am7 (½)     C/B (½)

    bloom       in the boom

       C                     C/B            Am7          C/G               D9/F# (2)
