    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)

                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

                   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 (minus first line)

     

                       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?
