He was born     on a sum-   mer day,
E/G#           A            A/C# - D - E/G# -
     nineteen-   fifty- one
A                  A/C#
  And with the slap    of a hand
D             E/G#             A       A/C# -
D - E/G# - A
  He had land-    ed as an on-   ly son
    F#m                                E6
His     mother and father said "what a    lovely boy
      Dmaj7                            E6
We'll     teach him what we learned, ah   yes, just what we learned,
      F#m                              E6
We'll    dress him up warmly and we'll   send him to school
      Dmaj7                           C#7sus4        C#7
It'll      teach him how to fight to be      nobody's    fool"

Chorus:

E/G# - A

            A/C#            D           E/G#
In the sum-     mer of fif-   ty- three     his mother,
         A           A/C#     D - E/G# -
brought    him a sis-    ter
A                      A/C#            D
   And she told him "we    must attend   to her needs
E/G#                     A                A/C# - D -
E/G# - A
     She's so much youn-    ger than you"
         F#m                         E6
Well, he    ran down the hall and he   cried
        Dmaj7                       E6
Oh, how      could his parents have   lied
          F#m                     E6
When they     said he was an only   son
   Dmaj7                       C#7sus4      C#7
He     thought he was the only         one

Chorus:
D    G#m7b5            C#m7           Am/F#
  Oh,        oh, what a     lonely boy

I hoped the tab would be playable, but it?s a piano song really, so it?s though. the 
bass-note is within the chord so if you
play the bass note separately, the position of the chords is pretty much as above. This
way you get the upbeat effect.
