Verse:
             G                Am          Bm                C
Oh, I could hide 'neath the wings, of the bluebird as she sings
    G             Em               Am    D7
The six o'clock alarm would never ring
      G            Am              Bm              C
But it rings and I rise, wipe the sleep out of my eyes
     G      Em      Am     D7      G        G7
The shavin' razor's cold, and it stings

You once thought of me, as a white knight on his steed
G                Em          Am    D7
Now you know how happy I can be
            G                    Am              Bm           C
Oh, and our good times start and end,  without dollar one to spend
     G       Em   Am     D7      G     G7
But how much baby do we really  need?

Chorus:
C           D     Bm   C       D7     Em    C
Cheer up, sleepy Jean, oh what can it mean, to a

Cheer up, sleepy Jean, oh what can it mean, to a 
G           C            G   Em      A7     D7
Daydream believer and a homecoming queen?

    when i hover over an F in the song (after transposing in up 5 half-steps), it displays the fingering for an F#9 chord. i know i can find the fingering up top, but thought you might want to be awaqre of that:)

    • same. Also: to make life easier, especially for beginners, you can play the “hawaiian d7 chord” which is fingered 2020.
