                               "Bus Stop"
                           (Graham Gouldman)

Intro [2X; bass plays eighth notes as indicated]

	(Am)             (G/B)
	 v   v   v   v     v   v   v   v

Verse 1:

	Am
	Bus stop, wet day, she's there, I say
	Please share my umbrella
	Bus stop, bus goes, she stays, love grows
	                   G
	Under my umbrella

	 C        G     Am/E
	All that summer we enjoyed it
	 Dm                Em
	Wind and rain and shine
	 Am
	That umbrella, we employed it
	           Em       Am
	By August, she was mine

Chorus:

	C/G           B7               Em     /D      C
	Every morning I would see her waiting at the stop
	                 Am/C                  B7                Em  /D /C /B
	Sometimes she'd shopped and she would show me what she bought
	C/G           B7              Em        /D      C
	Other people stared as if we were both quite insane
	           Am/C               B7              Em
	Someday my name and hers are going to be the same

Verse 2:

	That's the way the whole thing started
	Silly but it's true
	Thinkin' of a sweet romance
	Beginning in a queue

	Came the sun the ice was melting
	No more sheltering now
	Nice to think that that umbrella
	Led me to a vow

Instrumental break:

	guitar I (12-string, perhaps octave guitar):
