Once Upon A Time by Robert Bradley's Blackwater Surprise
Charted by: Micbass

----
My first chart here at U-G. I'm deducing chord 
voicing based on the song's structure and bass 
line; the guitar and/or keyboard may occasionally 
play a Bm9 or D6, for example. But this should 
give you the basic structure of the song. 
Play around. Have fun.

(Slow, Motown feel)

A           F#m        Bm7           A
Once upon a time, when I was in high school
A                       F#m          Bm7           A
I was in love with you, lady and you treated me so cool.
A     F#m       Bm7      A
I was drivin' a Chevy '72
A            F#m              Bm7                 A
had 4 on the floor, girl, one hundred 20 it would do


E                       Bm7   D                A
I remember Marvin Gaye, singin', Let's Get It On...


A           F#m        Bm7                  A
There was a war, baby, somewhere across the sea
A                     F#m                       Bm7           A
I didn't wanna go and fight, girl, but you were really lovin' me.
A   F#m    Bm7           A
I remember Martin Luther King, 
A               F#m            Bm7           A
lord he was the man, baby that gave us all a dream.


E                       Bm7   D               A
I remember Marvin Gaye, singin', let's Get It On...
                   F#m
Don't play with my love no,
E                       Bm7   D               A
I remember Marvin Gaye, singin', Let's Get It On.


A          F#m        Bm7          A
We used to have sweet music in the park
A          F#m           Bm7                 A
Lord up at Monterey they sang throughout the dark
A           F#m        Bm7            A
You used to wear girl, those hot pants
A                 F#m                    Bm7           A
When you strolled down the hall, all the boys wanted a chance...


    E                   Bm7   D               A
I remember Marvin Gaye, singin', Let's Get It On...
                   F#m
Don't play with my love, no...
    E                    Bm7   D                    A
I remember Otis Redding, Sittin' at the Dock of the Bay---
F#m
ahh, he went away..
    E                       Bm7         D       A
I remember Sam Cooke ya'll, Bring It On Home To Me,
                          F#m
from your love I can't be free...
    E                    Bm7 D                   A
I remember Elvis Presley,     and the Blue Suede Shoes
F#m
ahh it gave me the blues.
    E                   Bm7   D               A
I remember Marvin Gaye, singin'...let's get it on
