Not from a predominant guitar album as much of the music was arranged for a swing ensemble. I did my best. Was this info helpful? Yes No

Anderson & Weill's Broadway standard "September Song"
Recorded by James Brown on the 1970 album Soul On Top

[Verse]
           A7                      E7     
Oh, it's a long time from May to December
                  F#7   B7                  E7
But the days grow short   when you reach September
                        A7                  E7
When the autumn weather turns the leaves to flame
               F#7  B7                E7
One hasn't got time   for the waiting game

[Bridge]
        Am                D7     Bbm
Oh, the days dwindle down   to a precious few
   Am     D7      Bbm  B
September,    November
          A7                            E7
And these precious days I'll spend with you overnight
      F#7           B7                 E7
These precious days    I'll spend with you

[Solo]
A7 E7 F#7 B7 E7
A7 E7 F#7 B7 E7

[Bridge]
        Am                D7     Bbm
Oh, the days dwindle down   to a precious few
   Am     D7      Bbm  B
September,    November
      C#m      F#   C B
These precious days
N.C.
I'll spend, I'll spend, I'll spend with you

[Outro]
    E7         A7
Ohh-ho, Let me spend 'em
             E7            A7
Don't cut me short, let me spend 'em
              E7
Woman, let me tell ya
                  A7
Tell ya what I'll do
             E7
I'll put mo' glide in yo' stride
    A7
Mo' gut in yo' strut
        E7              A7
I don't dig it, I don't dig it
             E7
You can't be old
                      A7
Without a hole in yo' soul
        E7     
Put mo' glide in yo' stride
    A7
Mo' gut in yo' strut
      E7          A7
I'm a mess, I'm a mess
              E7
Baby, can you guess?
            A7
Hey-hey-hey YEAH!!!

(Brown continues to spit and scream ad lib rhymes over E7 A7 progression until fade)
