Verse 1:
             E               E7                A          (riff)
When I think back on all the crap I learned in high school 
F#m           B7    E            F#m B7   
It's a wonder I can think at all 
              E          E7            A          (riff)
And though my lack of education hasn't hurt me none
F#m             B              E   E7
I can read the writing on the wall 


Chorus 1:

    A C#7 F#
Kodachrome 
    F#7            Bm          E
You give us those nice bright colors 
                A         D
You give us the greens of summers 
            B             E               A  C#7 F#
Makes you think all the world's a sunny day, oh yeah! 
F#7      Bm    E
I got a Nikon camera 
                 A    D
I love to take a photograph 
               B       E           A   C#m   F#m   B  B7
So Mama, don't take my Kodachrome away 


Verse 2: 

            E               E7             A       (riff)
If you took all the girls I knew when I was single 
    F#m                 B7             E    F#m B7
And brought them all together for one night 
              E              E7            A     (riff)
I know they'd never match my sweet imagination 
F#m                   B        B7        E    E7
And everything looks worse in black and white 


Chorus 2: 

    A C#7 F#
Kodachrome 
    F#7            Bm          E
You give us those nice bright colors 
                A         D
You give us the greens of summers 
            B             E               A  C#7 F#
Makes you think all the world's a sunny day, oh yeah! 
F#7      Bm    E
I got a Nikon camera 
                 A    D
I love to take a photograph 
               B       E           A    C#m    F#m 
So Mama, don't take my Kodachrome away 


Outro: 
            A       C#m          F#m
Mama, don't take my Kodachrome away 
            A       C#m          F#m
Mama, don't take my Kodachrome away
            A       C#m          F#m
Mama, don't take my Kodachrome away
