    Intro: / D - - - / A - (G) - / (x4)

     

    w/intro riff:

    My friend the communist
    Holds meetings in his RV
    I can’t afford his gas
    So I’m stuck here watching TV
    I don’t have digital
    I don’t have diddly squat
    It’s not having what you want
    It’s wanting what you’ve got

     

    CHORUS:

    D (2)                              A (2)
    I’m gonna soak up the sun

                            Em
    Gonna tell everyone

         G        A (2)
    To lighten up (I’m gonna tell 'em that)

    D (2)                       A (2)
    I’ve got no one to blame

                                  Em
    For every time I feel lame

          G         A (2)
    I’m looking up--I’m gonna soak up the sun

     

    w/intro riff:
    I’ve got a crummy job
    It don’t pay near enough
    To buy the things it takes
    To win me some of your love

     

     

     

     

     

    Bridge:

    D                
    Every time I turn around

          C (½)                     G (½)
    I’m looking up, you’re looking down

         D      
    Maybe something’s wrong with you

              F (½)                     G (½)
    That makes you act the way you do

     

    Chorus

    w/intro riff:
    While it’s still free
    I’m gonna soak up the sun
    Before it goes out on me


    Don’t have no master suite
    I’m still the king of me
    You have a fancy ride, but baby
    I’m the one who has the key

    Bridge II:

    D
    Every time I turn around

          C (½)                      G (½)
    I’m looking up, you’re looking down

         D      
    Maybe something’s wrong with you

            F (½)                       G (½)
    That makes you act the way you do
    F
    (½)              G (½)

    Maybe I am crazy too

     

    Chorus x2

     

    D (2)                             A (2)

    I’m gonna soak up the sun
                    Em

    Got my 45 on
         G              A
    (hold)

    So I can rock on.
