[VERSE 1]
 |G/D         C           |G/D             G
A family of musicians took shelter for the night
      |G             C              |G/D  G |
In the little harbor church of St. Cecilia
              C         |G/D            G  |
 Two guitars, bata, bass drum and tambourine
            C             |G/D   G G/B |
Rose of Jericho and Bougainvillea


[Pre-Chorus]
Am G G/B      |    Am G      G/B | Am G |
     This is a lone---ly life
D  G/B  Am   G     D/F#|C/G |
Sorrows everywhere you  turn
   |Bb     Am    G                  C            |
And that's worth something when you think about it
Bb     Am    G      C |
That's worth some money
   |Bb     Am    G                  C            |
And that's worth something when you think about it
Bb     Am    G      C  |Bb Am G 
That's worth some money


[VERSE 2]
 |G/D         C        |G/D           G         |  
A trip to the market, a trip into the pearl gray morning sunlight
     C           |G/D      G |
That settles over Washington
              C        |G/D             G 
A trip to the market, a trip around the world
         |                  C                 |G/D    G
Where the evening meal is negotiable, if there is one.


[PRE-CHORUS]
G/B      |Am     G   G/B| Am     G   G/B | Am G |
This is a lonely-lone,    lonely life
D  G/B  Am   G     D/F#|C/G |
Sorrows everywhere you  turn
   |Bb     Am    G                  C            |
And that's worth something when you think about it
Bb     Am    G      C |
That's worth some money
   |Bb     Am    G                  C            |
And that's worth something when you think about it
Bb     Am    G      C  |Bb Am G | C | G | C |G G/B Am|
That's worth some money


[CHORUS]
G                      C  |G                      D  |
  To prove that I love you,  Because I believe in you
G                       C      |G                     G/B  Am G|
Summer skies, stars are falling all along the injured coast
G             C  |G               D   |
  If I have money   If I have children
G                       C      |G                     G/B  Am G|
Summer skies, stars are falling all along the injured coast
G           C  |G            D      |
  Oo-wah Oo-wah    Doo-wop a Doo-wah
G                       C      |G                     G/B  Am G|
Summer skies, stars are falling all along the injured coast

[VERSE 3]
G        |                C            |G/D           G 
   We are standing in the sunlight, the early morning sunlight
      |                 C           |
In the harbor church of Saint Cecilia
G/D  G              C       |G/D            G
        To praise a soul's returning to the earth
      |            C                 |G/D   G G/B |
To the Rose of Jericho and the Bougainvillea

That's worth some money
   |Bb     Am    G                  C             |
And that's worth something when you think about it

That's worth some money

G                       C      |G                     G/B  Am G|
Summer skies, stars are falling all along the injured coast
G             C |G               D   |
  If I have money   If I have children
G                       C      |G                     G/B  Am G|

G                   C |G                D           |
  If I have weaknesses   don't let them blind me now
G                       C      |G                     G/B  Am G|
Summer skies, stars are falling all along the injured coast

Summer skies, stars   are falling
G                 C |G                 D      |G  C |
  Leaving the shadow   of the valley behind me now
G      G/B        Am         |
  All along the injured coast
