Six O Clock  Lovin' Spoonful

         [G]v   v   v   v   [Fsus2]  v   v   v   v

        There's s[G]omething special 'bout[Fsus2] six o'clock
        In the mo[G]rning when it's still too [Fsus2]early to knock

        And the d[E]usky light shines [Am/E]down on the block
        And refl[E7]ects up and down on the [Am/E]hands of the clock
Fsus2 (as above, 4X; alarm clock enters 3rd time)
Six o'clock, six o'clock

Verse 1:

        [G]A few hours [G#dim]ago she was standing h[Am]ere
        Just watching the s[C]tars in our eyes and the li[D]ghts as the tights
        And I could f[Em]eel I could say what I w[E]ant
        That I could n[Am]udge her and call her my [A]  confidante
        But n[G]ow I'm all al[D]one with just my sh[C]adow in fr[G]ont
Fsus2/G (2 bars)
At six o'clock, six o'clock

Verse 2:

I went home and found that time to sleep was rare
Just watching my eyelids, knowing my brain bids the night not
to care
I got up and got scufflin' around
But somehow it just wasn't the same happy town
And the bells didn't ring with the same happy sound
At six o'clock, six o'clock


        [F/G]   If I go back where we p[G]arted
        [F/G]   Could I ever feel l[G]ike that again
        [F/G]   Guess I'll just have to wait 'til tom[G]orrow
        [D]  But what can I [Dsus4] do 'til then

Verse 3:

Guess I'll go back home and just wait until dawn
Yes, I had to learn going back where we were wouldn't help at all
And I wish my head had been working right
We'd have gone for coffee and talked all night
And now I'm back alone, bein' twisted up tight
Six o'clock, six o'clock


        N[G]ow I'm back a[D]lone[C]    [G]
        Yes, n[G]ow I'm back al[D]one [C]    [G]
        I'm b[G]ack alone [D]    [C]    [G]
