In The Sun

D A G F#m

 
D 
Springtime 
 
Satur
A 
day, a quiet after
G 
noon
 
On shady streets the  
D 
porches wait for the  
A 
night of parties
D 
Several blocks a
A 
way, the shoppers bob and  
G 
weave
 
Baskets in their  
D 
arms now the  
A 
weekend’s 
 
started
G 
A firetruck goes  
D 
by
G 
Someone turns and waves and  
D 
I know  
A 
why
 
Now we’re  
D 
walking, In the  
F#m 
sun
G 
I don’t think I’ve  
D 
ever felt so  
A 
good
Unmatched square brackets: Now we’re [D]walking, In the [F#m}sun

G 
On this April after
D 
noon in the  
A 
neighborhood

The winter deep and dark, was finally swept away

By the breeze that makes us want to lift our hearts and sing
In the distance there’s a train, someday I know we’ll ride
But right here we’ve got all we need of everything
You turn and laugh again
I don’t want this day to ever end

Now we’re walking…

Down on Church Avenue, rocksteady’s in the air

Someone selling oldies on a tabletop and you
Shake your shoulders and your hair
I hope this is a sound we’ll always hear, I never want this dance to stop
In everything we do
It seems the promise of the springtime has come true

Now we’re walking…
