E    F#m7   G#m7 F#m7
It's almost summer

E         F#m7    G#m7     F#m7      G6
And I can almost feel that sweet sunshine

        F#m7      B7#9

Bridge.
 Bm7        E7           AMaj7
Livin' and lovin' life's so damn easy
Am             D11        GMaj7
 When days are sunny and skies are blue-ue
     C#m7b5  F#7             B7               E7
 And dancin' all night, some parties till the daylight
Am             D                A       B7 
 Drink Tequila Sunrise with the morning dew
     E    F#m7    G#m7   F#m7
 And you  -ou    -ou   my lady
E           F#m7        G#m7           F#m7      G6
 I'm makin' love in the sand while the surf keeps time
        F#m7          B7#9      
I can't wait, I can't wait, I can't 
E            F#m7 G#m7  F#m7    E    F#m7 G#m7 F#m7
