   Bm                            Bm7  
Spring was never waiting for us till
                  C  
it ran one step ahead
                       Em   Em7   F G 
as we followed in the dance.

      A                               Amaj7
Mac Arthur's Park is melting in the dark
                           A7
all the sweet, green icing flowing down
 D                                Dmaj7
someone left the cake out in the rain
          Dbm  
I don't think that I can take it
           Bm
'cause it took so long to bake it
          Dbm                     D
and I'll never have that recipe again
      C   Am
Oh, nooo!

Bm                           Bm7  
I recall the yellow cotton dress
                 C  
foaming like a wave
                              Em
on the ground beneath your knees

birds like tender babies in your hands
and the old men playing 
chinese checkers by the trees

Mac Arthur Park's is melting in the dark
all the sweet, green icing flowing down
someone left the cake out in the rain
I don't think that I can take it
'cause it took so long to bake it
and I'll never have that recipe again
Oh, nooo!

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
