Intro: Bb  Eb  Bb  F

         Bb                Bb7  
Like a flower waiting to bloom  
Eb                       Eb7 
  like a lightbulb In a dark room 
Bb                     Gm             Cm 
  I'm just sitting here  waiting for you 
         F                  Bb  Eb  Bb  F
to come on home and turn me on 


          Bb                     Bb7  
Like the desert waiting for the rain  
Eb                 
  like a school kid
 Eb7 
    waiting for the spring 
Bb                    
  Im just sitting here
Gm             Cm    
  waiting for you to 
     F                   Bb  Eb  Bb  F
come on home and turn me on 


D                               
 My poor heart It's been so dark
Eb                   Bb  
  since you've been gone 
D
 after all you're
                        
the one who turns me off
Eb                             F
  you're the only one who can turn me back on 


Bb                   
  My hi-fi is waiting
Bb7              
   for a new tune
Eb                              Eb7 
  my glass is waiting for some fresh ice cubes 


Bb                     
  I'm just sitting here
Gm             Cm    
  waiting for you to 
     F                   Bb  
come on home and turn me on  
Eb        Bb
  turn me on

  1. Perfect song to play on Ukulele! The lightness of the instrument echoes the aerial, jazzy melody with just enough grace to make you think you can (almost) rival with NJ.

    For beginners, you can transpose to -3.
