**play riff 1 and 2 twice; then play riff 2 one more time.
[Verse 1] 
[A]Sugar magnolia, [D]blossoms [A]blooming
[A]heads all [G]empty and [E]I don't [A]care,
[A]Saw my baby [C#m]down by the [F#m]river
E D A *riff 2
knew she'd have to come up soon for air.
[Verse 2] 
[A]Sweet blossom come on, [D]under the [A]willow
[A]we can have [G]high times [E]if you'll [A]abide
[A]We can discover the [C#m]wonders of [F#m]nature
E D A *riff 2
rolling in the bushes down by the riverside.
[D]She's got every[G]thing de[D]lightful, [D]she's got every[A]thing I [D]need,
D G D D E A *riff 2
Takes the wheel when I'm seeing double, pays my ticket when I speed
[Verse 3] 
[A]She comes skimmin' through [D]rays of [A]violet
[A]she can [G]wade in a [E]drop of [A]dew,
[A]She don't come and [C#m]I don't [F#m]follow
E E A *riff 2
waits backstage while I sing to you.
[Verse 4] 
[A]Well, she can dance a [D]Cajun [A]rhythm
[A]jump like a [G]willys in [E]four wheel [A]drive.
[A]She's a summer love for [C#m]spring, fall and [F#m]winter
E D A *riff 2
She can make happy any man alive.
[A]Sugar mag[G]noli[D]a, [A]ringing that [G]blue[D]bell, [A]caught up in [G]sun[D]light
[A]come on out [E]singing I'll [G]walk you in the [D]sunshine
D A *riff 2
come on honey, come along with me.
[D]She's got every[G]thing de[D]lightful, [D]she's got every[A]thing I [D]need,
[D]A breeze in the pines and the [G]sun and bright [D]moonlight
D E A *riff 2
lazing in the sunshine yes indeed.
[Bridge 2] 
[A]Sometimes when the cuckoo's cryin'
[A]when the moon is half way down,
[B]Sometimes when the [E]night is [B]dying
[B]I take me out and I [A]wander [E]ar[D]ou[A]nd[B], I [A]wander [E]'round.
[B]Sunshine, [E]day[B]dream, [F#]walking in the [E]tall [B]trees
[B]going where the [E]wind [B]goes [F#]blooming like a [E]red [B]rose
[B]breathing more [E]free[B]ly, [F#]Ride our [E]sing[B]in', [B]I'll walk you in the [E]morning [B]sunshine
[B]Sunshine, [E]day[B]dream. [F#]Sunshine, [E]day[B]dream. [B]Walking in the [E]sun[B]shine.
