                             Summertime



Verse 1:

 Summertime
	And the living is easy
	Fish are jumpin'
	And the cotton is high

	Your daddy's rich
	And your mama's good lookin'
	So hush little baby now
	  don't you cry

Verse 2:

	One of these mornin's
	You're gonna rise up singin'
	You're gonna spread your wings
	And take to the sky

	But til that mornin'
	Ain't nothin' can harm you
	With your daddy & your mammy
	  standin' by



My arrangement:

  Intro:       prog-1
  Verse-1:     prog-1 
               prog-2
               prog-1b
               prog-3
  Verse-2:     (same as Verse-1, except use chords from 2nd-half of 
               prog-3 instead of chords from prog-1)
  Solo:
  Verse-1:     
  Ending:      Repeat last line with prog-3 again, then
               repeat last line with prog-3b, very slowly.
               (It's nice to add a descending scale between the
               F9+6 & E7+5 chords.  Try an Fmaj scale from middle-F,
               and ending on the low-E.)
