Verse 1:
        [Am]Bus stop, wet day, she's there, I say
Please share my umbrella
Bus stop, bus goes, she stays, love grows
        Under my umbrella[G]
        A[C]ll that s[G]ummer [Am]we enjoyed it
        W[Dm]ind and rain and s[Em]hine
        T[Am]hat umbrella, we employed it
        By August, [Em]she was m[Am]ine
Chorus:
        [C/G]Every morning [B7]I would see her w[Em]aiting [/D]at the s[C]top
        Sometimes she'd sh[Am]opped and she would s[B7]how me what she bo[Em]ught[/D] [/C] [/B]
        [C/G]Other people s[B7]tared as if we w[Em]ere both q[/D]uite ins[C]ane
        Someday my n[Am]ame and hers are g[B7]oing to be the s[Em]ame
Verse 2:
That's the way the whole thing started
Silly but it's true
Thinkin' of a sweet romance
Beginning in a queue
Came the sun the ice was melting
No more sheltering now
Nice to think that that umbrella
Led me to a vow
Instrumental break:
guitar I (12-string, perhaps octave guitar):

I have Bus Stop in a different key. I don't have a recording of it to verify.
Anyway, here it is:
