 Verse:

    Dm             C
The taxman's taken all my dough,
    F             C
and left me in my stately home,
A      A/G  A/F   A/E  Dm
lazin' on a sunny afternoon.
            C
And I can't sail my yacht,
     F          C
he's taken everything I've got.
A        A/G        A/F   A/E  Dm
All I've got's this sunny afternoon.

 Chorus:

D                                   G7
Save me, save me, save me from this squeeze,
           C7                           F   A7
I've got a big fat mama tryin' to break me.
      Dm              G7
And I love to live so pleasantly,
Dm                G7   C7
Live this life of luxury,
F           A7         Dm 
lazin' on a sunny afternoon,                In the summertime..
                                            A    A/G A/F A/E

 Verse:

   Dm                   C
My girlfriend's run off with my car,
    F                C
And gone back to her ma and pa.
A       A/G      A/F    A/E      Dm
Tellin' tales of drunkenness and cruelty.
        C
Now I'm sittin' here,
F             C
Sippin' at my ice-cooled beer,
A        A/G        A/F   A/E  Dm
All I've got's this sunny afternoon.

 Chorus:

D                               G7
Help me, help me, help me sail away,
           C7                            F    A7
or give me two good reasons why I oughta stay
      Dm              G7
Cuz I love to live so pleasantly,
Dm                G7   C7

About the artist behind Sunny Afternoon Tab:

The Kinks were an English pop/rock group formed in 1963, and categorised as a British Invasion band, along with the other members of the so-called Big Four (The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Who). Despite being less commercially successful than these three contemporaries, mostly because of a four-year ban from the United States in the mid-to-late 1960s, the Kinks are cited among them as one of the most important and influential rock bands of all time and have 12 top 40 hits in America.[1]

The band's early hard-driving singles set a standard in the mid-1960s for rock and roll, while albums such as Face to Face,[2] Something Else, The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society, Arthur and Muswell Hillbillies are highly regarded by fans, critics, and peers, and are considered amongst the most influential recordings of the era.[3]
