SUMMERTIME BLUES   Time: 4/4   Tenor: E   Bass: C


BRIDGE (SEE BELOW)
^-1-1-1  4,  ^-5-5-5  1,  ^-1-1-1  4,  ^-5-5-5  1

      1                         *                     BRIDGE
I'm a-gonna raise a fuss, I'm a-gonna raise a holler
        1                           *                     BRIDGE
About a-workin' all summer, just to try to earn a dollar
      4                    *
Every time I call my baby, try to get a date
           1                           *
SPOKEN: My boss says: No dice son, you gotta work late


CHORUS:
4                       *           57
Sometimes I wonder what I'm a-gonna do
          1                     *                 BRIDGE TWICE
But there ain't no cure for the summertime blues


     1                                  *                      BRIDGE
Well my mom and poppa told me: Son, you gotta make some money
       1                         *                   BRIDGE
If you wanta use the car to go a-ridin' next Sunday
       4                              *
Well I didn't go to to work, told the boss I was sick
                1                            *
SPOKEN: Now you can't use the car 'cause you didn't work all day


          1                     *                     BRIDGE
I'm gonna take two weeks, gonna have a fine vacation
          1                      *               BRIDGE
I'm gonna take my problem to the United Nations
       4                         *
Well I called my Congressman and he said, quote:
            1                                *
SPOKEN: I'd like to help you son, but you're too young to vote
