	 G              Am       C   G
	Feel I'm going back to Massachusetts
	 G                  Am    C       G
	Something's telling me I must go home
	          G                          C
	And the lights all went out in Massachusetts
	           G        D7              G     D7
	The day I left her standing on her own

	Try to hitch a ride to San Francisco
	Gotta do the things I wanna do
	And the lights all went out in Massachusetts
	They brought me back to see my way with you

Verse 3:

	Talk about the life in Massachusetts
	Speak about the people I have seen
	And the lights all went out in Massachusetts
	          G           D7 [N.C.]
	And Massachusetts is one place I have seen

Coda [repeat to fade]:

	 G        Am      C    G        Am      C    G
	(I will remember Massachusetts)
	                       I will remember Massachusetts

About the artist behind Massachusetts Chords:

The Bee Gees were a singing trio of brothers — Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb — that became one of the most successful musical acts of the 20th century. They were born on the Isle of Man to English parents, lived in Chorlton, Manchester, England and moved to Brisbane, Australia during their childhood years, where they began their musical careers. Their worldwide success came when they returned to England and signed with producer Robert Stigwood.

The multiple Grammy Award-winning group was successful for most of its forty years of recording music, but it had two distinct periods of exceptional success: as a harmonic "soft rock" act in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and as the foremost stars of the disco music era in the late 1970s.

No matter the style, the Bee Gees sang tight three-part harmonies that were instantly recognizable; as brothers, their voices blended perfectly, in the same way that The Everly Brothers' did. Barry sang lead on many songs, and an R&B falsetto introduced in the disco years; Robin provided the clear vibrato lead that was a hallmark of their pre-disco music; Maurice sang high and low harmonies throughout their career. The three brothers co-wrote most of their hits, and they said that they felt like they became 'one person' when they were writing. The group's name was retired after Maurice died in January 2003.

The Bee Gees were inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997; fittingly, the presenter of the award to "Britain's first family of harmony"[1] was Brian Wilson, leader of the Beach Boys, America's first family of rock harmony.

It has been estimated that the Bee Gees' record sales total more than 220 million, easily making them one of the best-selling music artists of all-time. The above figure in record sales does not include record sales for artists for whom they have written and with whom they have collaborated. Their 1997 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame citation says "Only Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Michael Jackson, Garth Brooks and Paul McCartney have outsold the Bee Gees".[2]
