    G6 (2)                                                                         Dmaj7 (2)

    Chewing on a piece of grass, walking down the road

    G6 (2)                                             Dmaj7 (2)

           Tell me, how long you gonna stay here, Joe?

    G6 (2)                                                      Dmaj7 (2)

       Some people say this town don't look good in snow

    G6 (2)                              Dmaj7 (2)

        You don't care, I know

    G6 (2)                                           Dmaj7 (2)

         Ventura Highway in the sunshine

                        G6 (2)                                                                           Dmaj7 (2)

    Where the days are longer, the nights are stronger than moonshine

    G6 (2)                            Dmaj7 (2)     Asus2/F# (2)

          You're gonna go, I know

     

                     Em7                         F#m7add4

    'Cause the free wind is blowin' through your hair

                 Em7                        F#m7add4     

    And the days surround your daylight there

      Em7               F#m7add4 

    Seasons crying no despair

           Em7         F#m7add4  (2)   G6 (2)

    Alligator lizards in the air, in the air

     

    Dmaj7 (2)                    G6 (2)

    Doot-doot, doot-doot, doot-doot, doot-doot,

    Dmaj7 (2)                   

    Doot-doot, doot-doot,

     

       G6 (2)                                                Dmaj7 (2)

    Wishin' on a falling star, waitin' for the early train

    G6 (2)                                                Dmaj7 (2)

           Sorry boy, but I've been hit by purple rain

    G6 (2)                                                  Dmaj7 (2)

        Aw, come on, Joe, you can always change your name

    G6 (2)                                         Dmaj7 (2)

          Thanks a lot, son, just the same

     

    Chorus
