Capo fifth fret

Intro  Am  Am  E7  E7 Am Am E7 E7 

   Verse 1
     Am                G  
The tax man's taken all  my dough
     C            G
And left me in my statley home.
E7                         Am
Lazing on a sunny afternoon. 
And i can't sail my yacht,
     C          G       
He's taken everything i've got,
E7                      Am
All i've got this sunny afternoon. 

Chorus 1

A7                                      D7
Save me, Save me, Save me from this squeeze,
         G                            C   E7
I got a big fat mama trying to break me.    
       Am             D7
And i love to live so pleasantly,
Am                    D7  G
Live this life of luxury,  
C            E7             Am
Lazing on a sunny afternoon, 
In the summertime,
       Am                  E7
In the summertime, In the summertime.

Verse 2

    Am                    G
My girlfriends run off with my car
    C                G
And gone back to her ma and pa
E7                                    Am
Telling tales of drunkenness and cruelty.
Now i'm sitting here,
C              G    
Sipping on my ice cold beer,
E7                        Am  
Lazing on a sunny after noon.

Chorus 2

Help me, Help me, Help me sail away,

Well, give me two good reasons why i oughta stay.

'Cause i love to live so pleasantly
Am                    D7  G
Live this life of luxury,  
C            E7             Am
Lazing on a sunny afternoon, 
In the summertime,
       Am                  E7
In the summertime, In the summertime.

(then its just Chorus 1 again)


       Am                 E7
In the summertime, In the summertime,

Then just quietly strum Am until fade (or sudden ending depending on which album you got it on)

About the artist behind Sunny Afternoon Chords:

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]
