Verse 1:
 Am
        Bus stop, wet day, she's there, I say
Please share my umbrella
Bus stop, bus goes, she stays, love grows
 G
        Under my umbrella 
 CGAm
        All that summer we enjoyed it
 DmEm
        Wind and rain and shine
 Am
        That umbrella, we employed it
 EmAm
        By August, she was mine
Chorus:
 C/GB7Em/DC
        Every morning I would see her waiting at the stop
 AmB7Em/D/C/B
        Sometimes she'd shopped and she would show me what she bought   
 C/GB7Em/DC
        Other people stared as if we were both quite insane
 AmB7Em
        Someday my name and hers are going to be the same
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:
