INTRO: Gm Cm Gm Cm

Cm            G            Cm

    Ab    Eb
Francisco Bay.
G       Cm       G         Cm            Ab
They're talkin' 'bout this famous place, down 
          Gm      Cm
Greenwich Village way.

They hootenanny all the time with folks from 
Ab   Eb
Eb                           Cm     Ab
Come Sunday morning, rain or shine, right in

Washington Square.

Cm                                       Ab       Eb
And so I got my banjo out, just sitting, catching dust.
G   C       G                Cm
And painted right across the case, 'Greenwich Village 

or Bust!'
   Eb                Cm                      Ab      Eb
My folks were sad to see me go, but I got no meaning there.
Gm  Eb               Cm              Ab     Gm
So, I said, goodbye, Kansas, Mo. and hello, Washington 

Ab   Dbm   Ab     Dbm                     A      E
Near Tennessee, I met a guy who played 12-string guitar.
Ab Db   Ab    Dbm           A      Abm       Dbm
He also had a mighty voice, not to mention a car.
     E                 Dbm
Each time he hit those bluegrass chords, you sure smelled 
A        E
mountain air.
Ab E                    Dbm               A     Abm
I  said, don't waste it on the wind, come on to Washington 

A  D               Dm                  Bb      F
In New Orleans, we saw a gal a-walkin' with no shoes.
Am  Dm                                       Bb       Dm
And from her throat there comes a growl, she sure was singin' 

the blues.
    F            Dm                      Bb    F
She sang for all humanity, this gal with raven hair.
                     Dm             Bb      Am
I said, it's for the world to hear, Come to Washington 

Bbm Ebm                                    B  Gb
We  cannonballed into New York on good old US 1.
Bb     Ebm                      B        Ebm
Til up ahead we saw the arch, a-gleamin' bright in the sun.
   Gb             Ebm                         B          Gb
As far as all the eye could see, ten thousand folks were there.
    Gb               Ebm  Gb   B        Bbm        Ebm
And singing in sweet harm-ony, right in Washington Square.

Ebm         Bbm        Ebm                Bbm        Ebm
Let's go to Washington Square..come on to Washington Square..(Fade.)
