Verse:
Bb
I wake up in the morning at six o'clock

They say there may be rain, but the sun is hot

I wish I had some time just to kill today 
F
And I wish I had a dime for every bill I got to pay

Some days you lose, you win

So I jump back in where I learned to swim 
Gm
Try to keep my head above it the best I can 
Eb                    Eb                     Bb               Gm

Gm
That's the sound of the sun goin down 
Bb
When the people of the world start to paint the town 
Gm
a day that's long is a day complete

So kick off ya shoes and relax ya feet

They say that miracles are never ceasing

And every single soul needs a little releasing

F
But only one thing'll help the sun go down

Sweet sweet love'll help the sun go down

it's true, it's true, it's true

  1. I like +2 better. It’s a little bit easier for beginners. Super fun song!

  2. Angela Hatch

    -3 is easier I think. Fun song!

  3. Hey I just wanted to put a correction, it kinda threw me off just a bit. But the bridge goes;
    Gm
    I wanna go where the summer never ends
    Bb
    With my guitar on the beach there with all my friends
    Gm
    The sun’s so hot and the waves in motion
    Bb
    And everything smells like suntan lotion
    Gm
    The ocean, and the girls so sweet
    Bb
    So kick off your shoes and relax your feet
    F
    They say that miracles are never ceasing
    F
    And every single soul needs a little releasing
    F
    The stereo bumping till the sun goes down
    F
    And I only wanna hear that sound, sound, sound
