intro:	Dm  Dm/C  Dm/B  Dm/Bb   A   A/G   A/F  A/E

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
	And I can't sail my yacht
	He's taken everything I've got
	All I've got's this sunny afternoon

D7                                     G7
	Save me, save me, save me from this squeeze
	            C7                       F     A7
	I got a big fat mama tryin' to break me
	      Dm                G7
	And I love to live so pleasantly
	 D7               G7  C7
	Live this life of luxury
	F            A7        Dm  Dm/C  Dm/B  Dm/Bb
	Lazin' on a sunny afternoon
		A    A/G   A/F  A/E
	In the summertime

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

Help me, help me, help me sail away
	Or give me two good reasons why I oughta stay
	'Cause I love to live so pleasantly
	Live this life of luxury
	Lazin' on a sunny afternoon
	In the summertime

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]
