Soak Up the Sun  Sheryl Crow

My f[E]riend the comm[A]unist, [E]holds meetings in hi[A]s R.V
I ca[E]n't afford his g[A]as, so I'm [E]stuck here watching T[A].V

I don[E]'t have dig[A]ital, I don'[E]t have didley squ[A]at
It's [E]not having what you wa[A]nt, it[E]s wanting what you've g[A]ot


Chorus:
I'[E]m gonna soak up the s[B]un, gonna tell ever[F#]yone [G#]to l[A]igh[C#]ten [B]up
I'm gonna tell em that I[E] got no one to bla[B]me, everytime I feel
[F#]lame I[G#]'m l[A]ook[C#]in u[B]p
I'm gona soak up the s[E]un   [A]
I'm gonna soak up the [E]sun  [A]
I've [E]got a crummy j[A]ob, it [E]don't pay near eno[A]ugh
to bu[E]y the things it ta[A]ke, to wi[E]n me some of your lo[A]ve

Bridge:
Eve[E]ry time I turn[D#] around I'm[D] lookin up your lookin d[C#]own
Ma[E]ybe somthings w[D#]rong with you that[G] makes you act the w[A]ay you do


Chorus:
I'm go[E]nna soak up the s[B]un, gonna tell ever[F#]yone [G#]to l[A]igh[C#]ten [B]up
I'm gonna tell em that [E]I got no one to bl[B]ame, everytime I feel
[F#]lame I[G#]'m l[A]ook[C#]in [B]up

I'm gonna soak up t[E]he [A]sun
While it's still fr[E]ee[A]
I'm gonna soak up the s[E]un[A]
Before it goes out on m[E]e [A]

Don't hav[E]e no master [A]suite, but[E] I'm still the king [A]of me
You have a f[E]ancy rid[A]e but baby, I'm [E]the one who has t[A]he key


Bridge:
Eve[E]ry time I turn[D#] around I'm[D] lookin up your lookin d[C#]own
Ma[E]ybe somthings w[D#]rong with you that[G] makes you act the w[A]ay you do
Maybe[G] I am crazy [A]too


Chorus:
I'm go[E]nna soak up the s[B]un, gonna tell every[F#]one [G#]to l[A]igh[C#]ten [B]up
I'm gonna tell em that I[E] got no one to bl[B]ame, everytime I feel
[F#]lame I[G#]'m l[A]ook[C#]in [B]up
(Repeat)


(slowly)
I'm g[E]onna soak up the s[B]un, I got my 45 [F#]on s[G#]o I[A] can [C#]rock [B]on
