song! So enjoy.

A-002220
D-XX423X is strictly correct but X00232 can also be used.

Guitar 1. (no distortion)

A         D           A              D
I could tell from the minute I woke up
                     A
It was going to be a lonely lonely
D             A     D
lonely lonely day.     (***1)
A         D             A               D
Rise and shine rub the sleep out of my eyes
           A             D
And try to tell myself I can't
           A
go back to bed.        (***2)

                Bm            E             A
It's gonna be a lonely lonely lonely lonely day.  (***3)
