WAKE UP IN THE MORNING   by Harry Palmer 
From: Ford Theatre Time Changes  -A New Musical  ABC Records, 1969

[You can hear this song on YouTube while watching a video the band made in 1969 
(?), running amok through beautiful
downtown Milford, Massachusetts.  Its really great!  

Ford Theatre did not receive the credit or love they deserved.  Tremendous talents 
across the board.  
I really enjoyed the Time Changes album, back in the day. 
There are a few other songs from this album on YouTube; you should check them 
out.  A great band and a great record.]

INTRO: Based on D minor chord.  Strums something like:
       D-A-D/E D/E  D/E (hammer) D/F   D  A  D/E  A/D/E hammer F   (3x)

Through the verse, a Dm is played while walking the bass line down from open d 
string, to c note (on the A string), 
to the b note to open A string rapidly followed by the A7 chord.

VERSE 1:
      Dm              Dm/C    Dm/B      A / A7        Dm  
And I wake up in the morning, pour some coffee for my brain

Dm/C       Dm/B    A7

Dm          Dm/C        Dm/B   A                 C/G   Dm/F#  E (no third)  
Everyday is different,     but I always feel the same.

CHORUS
Bm                 G     F#7            Bm      A/Bm  G 
Everybody tells me   the world is in my head (hand?), yeah!
    F#7               Bm (run:  B- -A-G-F#-E Em        A           C
But that don*t mean a thing to me            cause I*ll never be a man,
                B   (run:B C# E F# E D) A G F                  Em  Em7 
if I don*t have yooou                          if I don*t have you.

Em  Em7 Em  Em7 

VERSE 2:
And I read the morning papers, just like other people do
Every day it*s different, but there*s nothing really new.

CHORUS
Sunshine through my window, and it brightens up my day, yeah!
But that don’t mean a thing to me, cause I*ll never find my way,
if I don*t have you                     if I don*t have you 

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK:
Dm   Em   F; F Em (G), Dm   Em   F; F Em (G), 
Dm   Em   F; F Em  Dm G (hold)         A (hold)

[Note (G) is a quick hit of only the open D and G strings]

CHORUS  
Bm                           G        F#7             Bm     /A    G 
Sunshine through my window,    and it brightens up my da-a-a-ay,   yeah!

    F#7               Bm (run:  B- -A-G-F#-E Em          A             C
But that don*t mean a thing to me….          *cause I*ll never find my way,

                B   (run:B C# E F# E D)  A G F (hold)          
if I don*t have yo-ou   
                      
                Em // Em7 Em // Em7 Em //  C (hold)violins:C D E G A B C E
if I don*t have you.                         (End)
