Note: Lots going on here, pre-vocal. If you’d like to chord it all out and send it to me at weirwrite at gmail dot com, I’d gladly patch it in. But I just don’t have the patience.

[E] Almost [G7] forty [F#m7] acres [C6]
Above the [E] grassy [Amaj7] floor [Ab7]
The [A] arch that [B] drew the [Emaj7] cable [F#m]
Will [C] pull and [F/G] tug some [Abm] more

[E] From my southern garden [Gdim]
It [Abm7] sparkles [Caug] a sur [E7/G#] prise [?]

[Amaj7] Ding dang, [D/A] ding dang, [Am7] ding dang, [G/A] ding dang [Am7] dong [F] [Emaj7]

[Bm7] Maybe [C#m7] it’s a [F#m] nuisance [B7]
[Dmaj7] If you [E7] live close [Amaj7] by
[Am7] Working [C/G] hard all [B6] day up [Abm7] here

We’re [Amaj7] hungry and we’re tired (x3)
We’re [Amaj7] hungry and we’re [C/G]

[C6] [E6] [F6] [Ab6] [Em] [E7] [Gm7] [C7]

[F6] [G7] [C] [Bb] [Ab] [C#] [Cmaj7]

[G7] Maybe [A/G] it’s a [Dm7] nuisance
[Gm7] If you [C] live close [Am] by
[Abmaj7] Working hard all [G6] day up here
