Wake Up, Wake Up  The Grass Roots

"Wake Up, Wake Up"
(P.F. Sloan - Steve Barri)
My all-time favorite Grass Roots single even if it didn't do squat on the
Intro (2x):
[Bm] v v v v [Bm9(maj7)] v v v v

Verse 1:
[Bm]Open up your [Bm9(maj7)/F#]eyes and wake up
[Bm7]Got a lot of t[E]ime to make up, g[F#7]irl
[Bm]Time goes by in [Bm9(maj7)]such a hurry
[Bm7]Why'd you sit ar[E]ound and worry[F#7] so, don't you know
[A]You've been living your [C#m]life in a shell
[G#m]Now's the time has c[F#m]ome to break the sp[E]ell
[C]Everyb[G]ody's g[F]ot to shine s[C]ometime
I[C]t's just a ma[G]tter of t[F]ime you k[G]now
There's a w[Am]hole new w[G]orld for y[F]ou to d[C]iscover
[Bb]Wake [F]up, w[F]ake [G]up
Verse 2:
Life is just a book of pages
And you still got so many to fill in
Don't put down what's happenin' around you
Just because they told you it's a sin
How do you know until you try
Love is callin' so spread your wings and fly
(repeat chorus)
[C#m7-5] Got [F#7]so many t[Bm]hings to show you
[C#m7-5] Groovy t[F#7]hings that [Bm]we can share together
[C#m7-5] Baby,[F#7] no no [Bm]no don't be [Bb+]afraid of [Am]tomorrow
[Am7]La la la l[D]a
[Am7]La la la l[D]a
[Dsus4] / / / / (6x; drum roll into coda)
Coda (repeat to fade):
[C]Everyb[G]ody's g[F]ot to shine so[C]metime
[C]It's just a m[G]atter of t[F]ime you k[G]now
There's a wh[D]ole new w[A]orld for y[G]ou to disc[D]over
W[C]ake [G]up, w[G]ake [A]up baby
-- another ace 60's tab from Andrew Rogers
