Intro/Chorus-

                    G                           Cadd9
Well sometimes the sun shines on other peoples houses and not mine,

          G                                 D
And the clouds paint the sky in a way that takes away my summertime,

                 G                                  Cadd9
And somehow the sun keeps shining upon you while I struggle to get by,

              G            D                   C     D   G     C D G
If there's a light in everybody send out your ray of sunshine.

Verse 1-

         G
I wanna walk the same roads as everybody else through 

     Am                       B/C
the trees and past the gates.

             C                     
I'm getting high on heavenly breezes 

                C       D         G
and making new friends along the way.

G                                     Am                  B/C
I won't ask much of nobody, I'm just here to sing-a-long,

     C
And make my mistakes look gracious 

                C       D       G
and learn some lessons from my wrongs.

Chorus-

                   G                           Cadd9
But sometimes the sun shines on other peoples houses and not mine,

            G                               D
While the clouds paint the sky all gray it takes away the summertime,

             G                                   Cadd9
Somehow the sun keeps shining upon you, while I struggle to get by,

              G            D                   C      D  G     C D G
If there's a light in everybody send out your ray of sunshine.

Bridge-

        Em                                      G
Ohh if this little light of mine combined with yours today.

                         C                           G              D
How many watts could we luminate? How many villages could we save?

   Em                                    G
If my umbrella is tired of the weather wearing me down,

      C               Cm        
Well look at me now.

Break-

G   C    B/C  Am    C  D  G 

Verse 2-

                 G
Well you should look as good as your outlook 

           Am                       B/C
would you mind if I took some time,

    C
To soak up your light your beautiful light 

          C   D      G
you got a paradise inside.

       G       
I get hungry for love and thirsty for life,

     Am                        B/C
but much too full on the pain,

              C       
Cause when I look to the sky to help me 

          C     D          G
it most always looks like rain.

Chorus-

               G                           Cadd9
Sometimes the sun shines on other peoples houses and not mine,

            G                                 D
While the clouds paint the sky in a way that takes away my summertime.

             G                                  Cadd9
Somehow the sun keeps shining upon you while I kindly stand by,

          G                 D                       C     D   G
A little light never hurt nobody so send down your ray of sunshine.

Chorus/Break-

Hum over the chorus chords here.

Verse 3-

                   G                     Am               B/C
You're undeniably warm, cerulean, your perfect in design,
            C            D
I hope you hang around 

        G          Cadd9
So the sun it can shine on me,

          G              D
And the clouds they can roll away.

         G                  Cadd9
And the sky can become our possibility,

             G            D                    C     D   G
If theres a light in everybody send down your ray of sunshine.
